I'm in Love With My Kindle
I've read a lot of great books this month, including Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen and Cannibal Nights by Kiana Davenport. Both really fantastic books, and both available on Kindle. Having a Kindle has really changed my reading habits, and I find that I'm reading more, and also browsing more for great books. I've purchased some duds, but for the most part, I've been really happy with my downloads.
Amazon makes lots of suggestions based on my purchase history, and I've found that they are usually right on the money when it comes to my likes and dislikes. Recently, I was on Amazon and a suggestion popped up for Music, (I've purchased a lot of CDs lately) and I found a great new artist called Washed Out. The music is electronic, but very chill. Even the music genre is called "Chillwave" which I'd never heard of before, even though I've been listening to electronica for years. I went ahead and downloaded all their albums from the iTunes store. Now I'm listening to the newest record, Within and Without, while I'm relaxing and writing. It's great. And I never would have found out about them without Amazon.
That's all for now, I'll post again as soon as I have more information about the next edition.
