Bill Bryson - At Home (it was great)

Just finished The Prophecy by Chris Kuzneski. Interesting, if you suspend belief as you read it!

So why bother with a kindle if 66% of the books you're reading are paper? :?

I'm reading Men at Arms because the story on the Kindle is kinda crappy, and I just felt like reading MAA again.

Last weekend was the only weekend since I've had the Kindle, when I haven't bought a download book.

(Mainly because I was having a Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVD marathon!!).

It's just not pulling me in.

Somehow, I don't really care what happens to the characters. :lol:

I thought you meant that you'd got the paperback version because the Kindle version was no good. Now I get it.

No. I got the paperback MAA because my copy got ruined last week during the Great Water Incident of 2011.

Damn, those were difficult times. Did it rain on you, or was there plumbing/a lake/a burst bottle of Evian involved?

It was a huge, glass, vase of flowers on my desk at work, that had got cracked, and I'd not noticed.

It slowly deposited it's liquid contents all over 2 files, my fax machine and my Men At Arms.

I was most miffed.
