Accomplishment: according to my reading list, I read 33 books in 2012!
After I badmouthed it in an early blog, I've now been thinking more about getting a Kindle. I used to get most of my books at the library, but it started to get inconvenient to go there, and they only gave you two weeks to read the books, which I didn't like. Then I started buying all my books used from Amazon. Now my baby rips books out of my hands, so I started reading them all on the laptop, which she amazingly does not touch.
The benefits of reading Kindle books on the computer are thusly:
1) No books accumulating in my bookcase
2) Can read books with embarrassing titles
3) I started getting books online from library, which not only saves money but gives me guidance over what I should read (i.e. I based it on what comes available)
4) Many books available from Amazon on the Kindle for very cheap or free
But I'd like to switch to an actual Kindle to get more portability, plus I could borrow books from Amazon prime. Also, I hate the fact that when I'm reading, everyone thinks I'm just surfing the web. I think there's value in your kids seeing you reading a book, especially if they can't tell it's a junk book because it's on the Kindle.
Then again, by the time my baby is old enough that I feel like I can safely have a Kindle, the Kindle probably won't even exist. There'll probably be some new invention I have to buy. Like a K-Pad. Or an iNdle.
