I have been remiss in declaring my love of Kenny publicly lately.
I've convinced at least one co-worker to buy one and a few more are in the process of deciding. He loves his too and says he's doing more reading now that he has one than he was before.
I carry my Kindle 2 with me pretty much everywhere. Waiting or eating alone is a walk in the park when there is something available to read right at my fingertips
I failed to realize how much I've come to appreciate the slimness of Kenny.
I was soon reminded of this the other day when a book I had on reserve at the library was ready for pickup.
Behold the difference.
As the weight of the hardcover book rested on my chest the first night I read a few chapters I quickly arrived at the decision to return the book to the library and purchase the Kindle version from Amazon.
I continue to have mad love for the written page in the traditional book format. However, to carry 532 pages of the hardback book around with me isn't all that appealing to me.
Kenny kept me company as I ate dinner this evening. I read a quick article in Newsweek and then a little bit about the late Senator Edward Kennedy's experiences in boarding school.
Another great thing about Kenny is I could have been reading Jackie Collins' "Poor Little Bitch Girl" and no one would have been the wiser.
Had I decided I wanted to read my Lean Six Sigma book, an article in the February Reader's Digest, a chapter from "The Blind Side", or download today's USA Today or The Seattle Times I could have done so in a matter of seconds as I sat in Qdoba enjoying my naked chicken salad.
This evening, as I put the final touches on the bag for this week in travel, I give Kenny a kiss and a pat on my back for the purchase I have come to love.
Yes it is true the Kindle is an investment but for the way I live my life, it's well worth the spend.
Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.
