Always reading something

Great editorial and about six months after I got my Kindle 2, I did feel a little overwhelmed. In addition to all the wonderful classics out there, lo and behold, publishers were enticing me with a "free" first book in a series. This lead to purchasing the other books in the series (which was the publishers intent). After realizing that my TBR list was growing at an alarming rate, I thought, "There is no way in hell I am going to be able to read all these books!". That was then....

This is now... I don't feel the complusion (and believe me it was a complusion) to download every "free" title. If it sounds interesting, I jump on it. If not, I pass it by. While not as overwhelming as before, I still feel like a kid in a candy store. Like one of the previous posts, my Kindle has opened an entire world of independent authors I doubt I would have read, had it not been for their works being available electronically. Plus, the notion of having books at the push of a button means that I can read at anything, at anytime, anywhere.

At it stands right now, I have over 1000 books on my Kindle and there are days that I feel like I hit the lottery just knowing all those wonderful stories are out there waiting for me to lose myself in them. The excitement I felt when I first received my Kindle has not diminished, the methodology of searching for good reading material has changed, for the better.

IMHO, this is not a bad addiction to have.
