I have finally splashed out, and got ourselves (or should I say ‘myself’?) a Kindle.

It has taken us some years to get to this point. First, there was the financial side to consider, and then we had to process the whole pseudo-ethical arguments for and against traditional books.

Then there was the other important question: what would the Kindle actually serve? Jane Austen’s work was always going to be available – after all the Kindle isn’t going to thumb its nose at public-domain (i.e free), popular (read ‘extremely popular’) fiction. But finding that the works of Georgette Heyer are mostly all available too, tilted the scales – for me, anyway. Now the deed has been done.

Since placing the order, I’ve been eagerly tracking the progress of my our Kindle to us.

Journey of a Kindle-2

Only two days to get from the U.S.A to Australia. Wonder how long it’ll take from Australia to… Australia.

Stay tuned!

  1. Someone else who likes Georgette Heyer! How about Mary Stewart?
