Or in this case, a well-stocked Kindle. Which is sort of like a portable library.
A few weeks ago, I set up my grandpa's old Kindle so that he could use it, but he hasn't touched the thing in months. So... I logged out of his Amazon account and into mine, and I've taken to carrying it around with me so that I can read when I'm waiting for this, that, or the other.
I begin to think that this was the best mistake I've ever made.
Within a couple days of doing this, I downloaded a copy of Dracula and one of Frankenstein, so I could compare the introductions of the two books, which were published in the same decade and by authors that even knew one another.
Since then, I've been reading snatches of Dracula at every chance I have. This might seem a little silly, since at the time I was already reading three other books, but I've been enjoying myself immensely since I've gotten back into the habit of reading regularly, and have even found that reading multiple books at once can be invigorating. Don't ask me how, I'm not really sure yet how to explain it. The ideas from the different books mix together in the most fantastic ways, even more so when I'm really enjoying them.
If you're interested in seeing what I'm reading at the moment, you can find me on Goodreads. I'm always pleased to find someone I can have good book talk with.
You can also find me on NaNoWriMo, if that's something you're interested in. I'll talk more about it next week. ;)
Looking forward to seeing you all again soon!
