In related news, Hunger was the first book I read on my new Kindle! I think e-books will take a little getting used to, but after reading just this one I'm confident that I picked the right e-reader for me. I love the e-ink and I'm so glad I don't have a gadget with lots of other distractions. All I want is the device and the books, and that's what I've got.
It is a little strange to be reading a book and not know by the feel of it in my hands how far along I am. I'll have to adjust to the progress bar along the bottom instead. And writing the recommendation for Hunger was a little more difficult since I couldn't just flip quickly through the pages to find a particular passage. Also, I think I take a little longer to get absorbed in an e-book since I'm currently very aware of how much smaller the screen size is than a regular book page.
But I imagine after a few more books I'll stop noticing the differences (kind of like I stop noticing a new pair of glasses after a few days). Overall I'm super pleased with my Kindle.
