Oh, kids, this is going to complicate everything.
At this point in my life, I buy about five books a year. All that is about to change. The Kindle will be compatible with the library soon; till then, there are plenty of ways around these things: free samples, deep discounts, Project Gutenberg. And there are things that can be fiddled with to solve these problems.
But mostly, I'm PILING up sample chapters right now. It's light, but I can't actually read any faster on it than I could before. I'm actually so excited about all the possibilities for what to read that I almost can't settle on something and just start reading.
Tell me it'll get more settled? Oh, but don't. Let me jitter like a caffeinated maniac from book to book till I pass out from the excitement--please!
