Reading is something i used to enjoy immensely but like a lot of things work got in the way and the only 'book' i was likely to pick up was a book of accounting standards. Now despite the necessity of these 'books' they are most certainly not something i read for enjoyment, nor do they provide a great level of enrichment to my life.
So my slightly selfish resolution for this year is to educate myself further, by reading classic books, making sure i read a quality newspaper and generally participating in more cultured activities. Slightly geeky i know but necessary for myself
So far i have managed two books (one a week, go me), The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald and Animal Farm by George Orwell, both on the short side and great for easing me in. The Great Gatsby is an amazing little book and one i would highly recommend! War and Peace and the like are something i definitely need to train up for!
The postman arrived with my new toy this morning to aid me with this challenge
Although i have only had this beauty a few hours i am already becoming very attached. I can not get over how crisp the words appear on the screen and how easy it is to use.
First download went to The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath and is my read for next week for the hotel!
I spend a lot of time away with my work and to say i am an excessive packer is one hell of an understatement. Therefore the kindle suits my needs beautifully, offering me both the variety i desire and more space for toiletries.
I can't decide what i want to wear tomorrow; let alone what i will desire to read in a week. I can fill this little beast with a variety of books to suit all my potential needs.
After all "variety's the very spice of life"....
If you have any book suggestions they would be greatly appreciate, i love hearing what other people are reading!
