The Kindle Experience

I’ve just read my first book on my brand new Kindle from Amazon and it is a really cool piece of kit! The size is just about perfect for me, it fits nicely in my bag and it is small enough to use in bed at night. The screen is really awesome, it is just like reading on real paper. The 3G connection, amazon call it Whispernet, works great and books appear on the Kindle in a jiffy, both when ordering them on or directly from the kindle. I charged it when it arrived a couple of days ago and I still cant see if the batterycharge has dropped any…

I like it!


The storm had now definitely abated, and what thunder there was now grumbled over more distant hills, like a man saying “And another thing…” twenty minutes after admitting he’s lost the argument.

– Douglas Adams

This is the first quote, in Eoin  Colfers sixth book, in the increasingly inaccurate numbered trilogy, about Arthur Dents search for a decent cup of tea, in a universe that rarely makes much sense.

We have travelled through space and time, my friends, to rock this house again

– Tenacious D

That is the second quote. I wast a bit apprehensive before opening the book. Thats gone now, I can’t wait to see what Mr. Colfer has in store for Arthur, Ford, Trillian, Zaphod, Random and me!


At home I have a brick wall in my livingroom.

I covered it with wall paper with pictures of bricks on it, just so I could be the only one that knew.

I tell visitors to touch it, it feels real.
