My Kindle arrived in the mail, a belated Christmas present! ~~
More photographs soon when it has its New Year fittings…and it does mean perhaps much more accessible and inexpensive reading this year (I think I donated a library wing with all those 2010 fines!)
One of my 2011 convictions is to read more ‘worthy texts’ this year. I think I should keep with the impulsive streak to read everything I love. 2011 also means the year of studying for my CFA Level 2 so time may be tight, but I have squeezed in some thoughts already on the themes I would love to start.
Goodreads has started a 2011 Reading Challenge – I don’t think I’ll sign up as I don’t think I have the time to update every book the moment I finish! I do wish I had better categorization for the books I’ve read though. Or a list for those books I started and wanted to finish, but let go because there was just no time or the fines started accumulating.
I’ve heard the Kindle has a problem about categorizing folders. And I’m not sure whether Wi-fi would work in Singapore, but I don’t think I’ll go that way. It is sad that Amazon does not think enough of our little red dot to provide more functions! But already I know I am going to have a great reading adventure with my Kindle.
And of course I can’t resist sharing some of the Kindle/Nook fashion I spotted…
My Kindle cover of choice, arriving in the mail soon! The M-Edge New Yorker cover by Bob Knox.
The entire range is pretty dandy.
I had also been admitably tempted by the Kate Spade line (uses the same prints as the series of clutches), but the price, ow! And I think I like the clutches more than the Kindle covers.
Still, everyone loves a bit of polka-dots.
DVF also launched a very leopard collection.
Nook fashion is similarly stellar~!
Don’t even get me started on the skins available…
Van Gogh’s Blossoming Almond tree.
Daniella Foletto’s ‘The Window’ and ‘Via Del Fiori’
Or custom pictures, like this version of Frederick Childe Hassam’s Woman Reading?
I did not select the above as I was looking for something more of the brown family to match the New Yorker cover! Will update more once I get more books in.
Guilty pleasures- will be downloading the entire Agatha Christie collection from my colleague.
