This one, to be precise. It’s a Sony. And … that’s all I know about it really.
It’s awesome but it took forever to set up. It had two free ebooks on it – Around the World in 80 Days and The Jungle Book. I bought Bleak House and I’m a few chapters in – mostly reading in the car and waiting at the bus stop after work.
I bought Bleak House on a rather obscure impulse – I had always thought I didn’t like Dickens after not liking Great Expectations at uni, or The Old Curiosity Shoppe when I tried to read that a few years ago.
Bleak House, however, is fascinating and I’m riveted. I have no idea what’s going on, but I don’t even care.
I’ve promised myself to at least try and finish one ebook before buying the next one, and Bleak House is big enough that it’s going to be a while.
Plus, I’m saving my hard-earned for Sherlock – season two and both soundtracks, all of which will be available on amazon UK on Feb 27 (er, Tuesday my time). I’m just waiting for the season 2 soundtrack so I can get them all together.
Yes, I do have “I believe in Sherlock Holmes” and “I’m fighting John Watson’s war” t-shirts, why do you ask? :D
Speaking of reading, I’m ¾ of the way through 11.22.63 by Stephen King. I’m hoping to get it finished fairly early this week so I can dive in to my pile of library books.
It’s good; I’m liking it but I wish it had been edited a little more tightly. It’s a bit on the rambly side (yes, I know, it’s Stephen King but there’s rambly and then there’s WILL YOU GET ON WITH IT).
I’m still picking away (slowly) at my cross stitch rotation – at the moment I’m working on Patrick’s train and next up in the round is Circe. I’ve had a couple of weeks from the Planet Pants but I’m hoping this one will be better.
I have tomorrow off, and I’m going to a friend’s place to watch the Oscars. We shall eat, stitch and pick at people’s outfits.
I’m looking forward to it. :-)
