It's great for me as I spend so much time in isolation. Working in camp and all. If I want a book I don't have to wait to get home so I can visit a book store. Just type in the title or author or just browse. I love it.

In your situation, I would do the same. Thumbsup

I'm forcing myself to read Roger Penrose's "The Road to Reality". (Hawking's mathematical buddy). A history of math. It's pretty good.

It's a big ol' chunk of tree. I also started having a gander at it the other day. Eish... Is gonna be a long term project, is all I can say...

RE: What is on your bookshelf?
I prefer books over Kindle or Audio, but the amount of time I spend traveling or being out in the boonies somewhere makes it irrational to have anywhere near as large a library as I'd like. I've also got a vast Audible collection ranging from zombie fiction to Steven Pinker that dwarfs everything here and some Norse books at a different house.

My little book shelf:

Bookshelf overflow, currently reading, or so often read I don't bother putting it away. Also a few children's books in Chinese I read to my kids. I'm hoping they pick it up Tongue For now my 3 year old only talks to me in English and French, not sure how much of the Chinese he actually understands.

I need to pick up a kindle. I'm up at campus today waiting to take a test in the testing lab. I borrowed one from the library. Really nice. I can read it a lot better than a tablet. I guess the pale white background does help. Their version is the white one with keyboard also.

I've got the most recent Kindle Paperwhite with this case and I'm quite happy with it. I had it with me during winter training recently and it not only survived, but didn't need a recharge the whole time despite fairly regular use. The ridiculous battery life of the Kindle (not counting Kindle Fire, which really is more of a tablet) is also a big reason for going with it as opposed to just using a smartphone or tablet.

Yes the battery does last a long time. Maybe the phone guys could learn a thing or two..

That is a beautiful case! I really like the map look. I need to get one. The tablet I have really hurts my eyes after a while. Reading on my iPhone for anything longer than a few minutes is a joke.

Well it uses some kind of screen printing thing where it only takes power to change pages. Once the text is on page, it could theoretically stay there indefinitely.

So essentially with a strong case. The kindle can store massive amounts of info, and keep it safe. Well except from an EMP.
