Getting Amazon Kindle

With the objec­tive of rekin­dling my pas­sion to read, I ordered a Kin­dle (Wi-Fi only ver­sion) today. I have about 1.5 GB and grow­ing pdf col­lec­tion which I am pro­cras­ti­nat­ing to read from quite a few years! This cer­tain­ly affect­ed my tech­ni­cal and Eng­lish lan­guage skills.

I agree that I am lazy at times but equal­ly frus­trat­ing is the fact that there is no con­ve­nient way to read an e‑book. I tried read­ing on lap­top screen but lap­top is too too heavy to hold and read for long hours. iPhone screen is so small that I spend sig­nif­i­cant time zoom­ing and scrolling. So this is the void I want to fill with Kin­dle and I am sure I will reclaim my read­ing habit.

Thanks to my good friend Jorty Thomas for get­ting Kin­dle from US for me.

At total 190 USD (8450 INR), I believe it is a wor­thy invest­ment. This fig­ure includes cost of Kin­dle, leather cov­er and tax­es. I have to wait until 20th Jan­u­ary 2011 to lay my hands on it.
