Sometimes I feel like I have too many hobbies and interests, or at least, not enough time for all of them. And in recent years I’ve always felt that one would suffer in favor of another.
A really good example of this? Reading versus knitting. Reading is my oldest hobby by far, though I’d fallen out of the whole reading-for-fun thing during college. I’d started to get back into it after graduation, but then it fell to the wayside again as my interest in knitting grew. I mean, I only finished 17 books last year, which is really kind of sad for me. If I could read and knit at the same time, this wouldn’t have been a problem.
But… now I can, thanks to my birthday present from T!
It’s so much easier for me to read and knit at the same time now, because I just have to quickly press a button instead of pausing to turn a page. And the e-ink is way easier on the eyes than reading an e-book on my computer monitor.
My only real problem now? I haven’t really found a good place to purchase DRM-free e-books yet – it’s kind of hard for me to tell which ones on the Kindle store are DRM-free and which one are not, unfortunately. At least many books on my to-be-read list are in the public domain, so for now I can just rely on sources like Project Gutenberg.
Those who care about the knitting may be wondering: what’s the project in this picture? Well, it’s a Kindle sleeve, of course!
