High-Tech Christmas

One of my Christmas traditions is that every year, I read James Joyce’s “The Dead” from Dubliners on Christmas Eve. This year, for the first time in about a decade, I ended up spending the evening at my parents’ house instead of going home to my own bed. So it was then that I realized I had left my copy of the book at home.

But! Since I now have a Kindle (thanks to a deal I could not refuse!), all was not lost. I went onto the Kindle Store, found a free copy of Dubliners, and before I knew it I was spending Christmas Eve curled up in bed with Gabriel and Gretta Conroy. Christmas was saved, and the future is now. Sometimes, technology is awfully handy.

    How do you like the Kindle?

  2. I’m enjoying it so far. It’s still very new, and all but one of the books I’ve bought were free, but I like the ease of using it. And being able to pick up books that don’t necessarily need to be taking up space on my shelves.

    (There will always be some books, though, for which a physical copy is purchased.)
