My new pretty, shiny thing. An early Christmas present for myself.
If you think this post is an attempt to make up for having skived off reviewing yet again, you’d be right.
Okay, it’s been unboxed for a few weeks now, and some off the gloss has come off after I’ve struggled with the more unfriendly bits of the software, but overall I’m loving this device.
Most importantly, it’s opened up the world of ebooks for me, on a scale I could never have managed with the iPad, my HTC Desire or my laptop. It’s all I can do to stop myself from impulse ebook purchases. Similarly, I’ve had to restrain myself from requesting everything on NetGalley.
But I’ll talk more about this later. For now, it’s all about the pretty. The only thing I regret is that Myer didn’t have the blue Reader when I bought mine (but the Myer One discount was too good to pass up).
