Digging Out

So, as of around midnight last night I am finally “done” The Project. I still can’t say what it is but I imagine it will become clear sometime later this year.

So in the meantime I’d like to talk about my Kindle.

I’ve read about 4.5 books on my Kindle so far and I absolutely love it. But I hate the buttons. I thought I would when I first saw it and when I got it I thought “Maybe I’ll get used to it” but the buttons just suck. The giant button on the right is always in the way. I accidentally turn pages constantly. Where the fuck am I supposed to hold the thing?

There was no reason to put giant buttons on the side of the thing. I use it for reading (and not browsing, buying, whatever) 99.9999999999999999999999% of the time so all I need is a next and previous page button. Put “Back” in the keyboard, put “Previous” where it is (small, on the left), get rid of the left side “Previous” and make the “Next” button as small as the “Previous” button.

Aside from that though, I love it. It’s just like reading a normal book. I notice no difference really between the screen and paper and I enjoy reading my Kindle every bit as much as I enjoy reading books. I don’t know that I’ll ever buy another paper book again unless I can’t find it electronically.

So hooray Kindle!

That’s all for now. I’m so tired.
