Finished my First Book
Well I finished my first book on the Kindle. The expanded version of Stephen King's "The Stand". Throughly enjoyed the book. Reading on the e-ink screen was noticably easier on my eyes than the iPhone. That being said..
I still read on my iPhone while I was waiting on my case. Which I found that I really liked how both the iPhone and the Kindle would store my current location and update to it when i picked up either device. That's a damn handy feature!
The biggest thing that I have noticed myself doing more is reading multiple books at the same time on the Kindle. I'm sure it's just a phase.
After trying the New Yorker for a week or two I find myself on the fence. I'm already falling behind in reading it. Maybe I found look into a good monthly magazine. It's nice not having to look at any advertising.
Oh well, just a few thoughts I thought I'd share.

Having all that amount of books in one single gadget is a real temptation, but is much more better than internet temptation.
Sometimes I go from a grammar website site to an erotic one , because the website that is giving free grammar lessons was showing some hot girls too.
At least black and white eReaders don't have those links and hot pics in them.

iPhone plus Kindle is a brilliant combination and one I use a lot. Most of the time I'll opt to read on my Kindle but for short bursts of reading or places where I might need to be discreet with my reading (ie when out with family/friends) it's easier to get away with reading on the smaller device!
Until I got the lighted cover for my Kindle, I used to read the iphone in bed - that's where the backlit device has an advantage. I suffer from insomnia so I can wake up multiple times a night when I will either read or write and I don't want to disturb hubby by putting a big lamp on. But having the lighted cover solves that issue completely now.
