I am thankful for ebooks. Kindle variants especially. I used to have thousands of books, both hard and paperback. Now there are maybe a hundred left in my hardcopy collection. I’ve been replacing them with electronic versions: pdt, doc, rtf, lit, epub, etc.
I found an awesome program called Calibre, that will eventually help me catalog my goodies and sort them. Got started and it’s turning out to be a bit more complex–OK, just time consuming–than I had anticipated. And with the number of projects and things that need to happen prior to leaving to teach, it just isn’t the priority it was.
I’m just so happy that Ebooks can come with me on the plane and so on. Boredom is never a problem.
Picking just one book to read is sometimes challenging. Yeah, first world whining.
