Anywho, I digress …

Loosely based on what might have happened. Or not.

Two of my favorite people

I got a Kindle for Christmas.  I had forgotten that it was on my Amazon Wishlist, but what a great surprise!

I got the DX which has the bigger screen.  I thought it would be good for reading newspapers.  As it turns out, newspapers on the Kindle are a bit crap.  Few pictures, fewer articles than the print or online versions, not updated during the day like the online versions and a pain to navigate.  I actually prefer newspapers on my Blackberry!

Anywho, I digress …

The awesome thing about the Kindle is the integrated dictionary – I have mentioned before my fascination with words.  Reading a book and being able to instantly look up a word in the dictionary is splendid.  The first book I read on the Kindle was Bright Sided by Barbara Ehrenreich.  I decided to keep a list of all the words I looked up.  Some were totally new to me and some I just wanted to confirm my understanding.

An odd list.  My personal favorite?  Quantum Flapdoodle of course 🙂
