    I was seriously reading a book on my Kindle, when suddenly an office mate denounced, “I never like ebooks. I like the sensation I felt when turning the book pages breathing their aroma.” This is certainly a stale statement without a new nor authentic idiom. I hear them too often. And no need to mention the statement to me either, before the character spent her time to see my book shelves (in both houses), plus some books that are still homeless off the shelf.
    Surely, that character would also need to calculate: how many trees must be destroyed to accommodate my interest in reading that had never come down so far.

    I blog this entry using my Amazon Kindle. This device is not optimised for browsing or even for making notes. I guess they put the keypad here just for searching function. Anyway, I bought this device only because of my passions to books and how I always want to be in touch with them. An iPad would be an overshoot.

    This Kindle has accompanied me to a seminar trip in Hongkong. I saved a Wikitravel page here and used it as my travel guide. Some books have been loaded in it: my favourite books, new inspiring books, technical references, IEEE journals, some papers, etc. Too bad I cannot use it for writing; except blogging when I can reach a WiFi access.
