Reading Habits

I've written in the past about loving books as physical objects, but it can't go very deep because I've just read all twelve of Phil Rickman's Merrily Watkins novels on an e-reader- and now Ailz has bought me a Kindle Fire and I'm downloading texts for it. Thus far I've downloaded Swedenborg's Heaven and Hell (only 79p) and David Mitchell's The Bone Clocks. I'll be putting the Kindle in the pocket of my coat this afternoon when we take my mother to sit around in a hospital waiting room for hours for the bi-monthly check on her eyes.
