My mom-in-law, who is awesomely sweet, surprised me with a pink Sony eReader for Christmas. Because she rocks. I have named my eReader Pinky Tescadero, because pink
I have half a bazillion ebooks on my wishlist, half of which I probably would have bought and downloaded this week if I'd had my laptop with me. Especially after I found out about Books On Board, an independent ebookstore. But I guess that's one of the reasons Freddy was wise and took the laptop with him, so I'd have to run these purchases through him first. He's a sly one, that Freddy...
I'm slowly making my way through bell hooks's FEMINIST THEORY FROM MARGIN TO CENTER, which I started in October for an online book club (yes, I know it's January now, thank you. I said "slowly," didn't I??) Also, Marcy gave me Gail Collins's WHEN EVERYTHING CHANGED: THE AMAZING JOURNEY OF AMERICAN WOMEN FROM 1960 TO THE PRESENT for Christmas, so I have those two paper books to read (and blog about -- that's part of what makes the reading so slow, all the note-taking...) But fear not, Pinky is already loaded with JANE EYRE (which I need to re-read thanks to Jasper Fforde and his THURSDAY NEXT series) and a few other (free) classics I've been meaning to read for a while.
Every year I want to do one of those reading lists, or set a goal for how many books I want to read in the year, but I wimp out because I'm pretty sure I'm not going to make the goal. I'm not going to set a goal this year, but I will keep a list of all the books I read this year. Probably through Goodreads, or something. Maybe through Google Wave, as soon as I figure out how to do that nifty posting-to-Blogger-through-Wave thingie.
(I'm still posting from my phone, so when I can get to a computer, or decide to get up from this chair, I'll add links and other nifty things of the like.)
