I know there are many who wouldn’t agree with me, but I love my Kindle, the e-reader available from Amazon. It has only just recently become available in Canada, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one. Little did I realize that for someone with a slight leaning towards the obsessive compulsive, The Kindle would become akin to a social death sentence. I can’t put the darned thing down. I can’t blog. I can’t phone people. I can’t go out. I can’t even say hello to the usual gang who sit opposite me on my daily GO train commute to work. I. Can’t. Stop. Reading. And with over 385,000 books available on what I consider to be. on the cheap, I figure I could easily quit my job, quit my life and give in to this needy impulse. But to prove that I am made of stronger stuff, I have vowed to put down my Kindle and blog. My first blog of 2010. My hands are shaking and I feel a headache coming on, but I think I will survive. Will I need a Kindle support group? Is there such a thing? Now if only my “Kindle thumb” would stop aching every time I hit the space bar while I type … god help me when Apple finally releases it’s long-awaited iTable or iSlate – that’s when iGiveup on ever having a life again.
