In the past seven weeks, I’ve read two hard cover book. Period. No paperbacks. The first book was about Ant/arctic exploration—see my last post. The other related to research for my current work-in-progress.
While I can admit to bouts of writing and the intrusion of life itself, I also need to admit that I have been reading. A lot! You see, I bought a black KOBO e-reader shortly after Christmas, which I accessorized with its own red zippered case. Very cool.
Since then I have:
Read 15 books, not including instruction manuals,
Read for a total of 93.9 hours,
Completed 27% of my library (the figure would be higher, except I keep adding to said library! I currently have 53 books on file.)
I’ve won numerous awards through the Reading Life program, including the Juggernaut—I’ve turned 10,000 pages! Now well plus that amount.
One of the fabulous benefits of the e-reader is that I can slip it into my purse and take it anywhere. Thus relieving the tedium of waiting room waits and allowing me to read even more.
Of course, one of the ironies of finally embracing this latest technology is that it has given me access to all the classics of literature that no longer have copyright restrictions.
Only 9 of those 53 books are ‘modern,’ and
Only 3 of those 53 books have actually been purchased.
What a reading life!
