I'm new. Hi!

Hi all! Call me Cinder. I'm a new ereader, having impulse-purchased a Kobo Aura HD at JB Hi Fi recently. I've already bought far too many books for it, and I don't foresee myself stopping any time soon. Oh dear. I love reading, knitting and video games (particularly World of Warcraft). When I'm not doing any of those, I can be found working, studying (mechanical engineering), or at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (I'm a white belt).

I'm a big hardcover fan, and despite having just bought my Kobo ereader, I have two hardcovers on their way to me right now: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and Command And Control by Eric Schlosser. I don't know what I'm going to do with all of my books now that I have an ereader as well - I don't want to stop collecting beautiful hardcovers, and I don't know how I'll end up feeling about my paperbacks; they're definitely not as pretty as a hardcover, and I can already see an ebook being more useful... Hmm! Now I'm going to have to decide which books, if any, to re-gift.



On a lighter note, let me tell you what I like to read! I'm currently in the middle of a re-read of Harry Potter by JK Rowling (I'm up to book 5: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), and I'm reading both the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth (book 2: Insurgent) and The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare (book 4: City of Fallen Angels) for the first time. I love young adult, fantasy, paranormal, historical fiction, contemporary fiction, romance, sci-fi, non fiction (especially about politics and warfare)... I'll read almost anything. In about a week, I'm going to a signing with George RR Martin, author of my favourite series, A Song Of Ice And Fire. It's going to be amazing!

I'm looking forward to spending time here.

Welcome to MobileRead, Cinder. If your ebook buying gets out of hand, make sure to visit the Ebook Buying Addicts thread. There you will be among like-minded people who can help with that addiction.
