I have 50 in my wish list I want.. Student loans make me tempted to buy them all but my shelf simply does not have the capacity for 50 more books lol!

According to my Kindle, I am 47% through my first book of the year.

I need to step it up.

haha, to be fair.. the 2 i've read weren't large books.
the fault in our stars and the perks of being a wallflower.

just starting a book called the legend of suicide by David Vann.. straight to the point in the first chapter, that's what I like in a book, no dilly dallying around haha :)

That's why I like my Kindle: no shelf space issues.

Still can't convince the other half to convert, so there's still several well-filled book cases in the flat. :D

I used to say the same thing. Then I bought a kindle. I love my kindle. But I still buy dead tree books.

Me too. Problem is that with the Kindle I keep on purchasing new books for it all the time, usually before I finished reading whatever I'm reading at the moment. And as there is no need for me to physically go to the bookstore to get that satisfaction of having a new book, I buy books more than I would and faster than when I still had to go to the bookstore.

Ach well, I suppose I could spend my hard-earned pay on worse things. :D

A months ago, I had to prioritize some books of my long list and the choice was not easy !! Sometimes, there are books that mysteriously disappear, after prioritizing...:confused:

I am also an enthusiast of dead tree books.... In fact, i've found few books about specialized knowledges ( technical books ) in digital form, above all, when I need to consult << old relics >> for my studies / projects / commitments.... Hurrah tomes books !! :D

unfortunately we still have a way to go in converting older books to digital format, thank goodness for the tireless work the folks over at Project Gutenberg do - and I would encourage any one with a passion for books and a bit of free time to donate some time to them. They always need a hand with something and its really easy to register and contribute.

I used to help with Project Gutenberg but I was unable to recognize the difference between an en dash, an em dash, and a horizontal bar so I stopped doing it.

Well yeah, but when you are looking at the scan of a page, I am not going to compare its length to the M. :p
