The news of the international avalability of the Kindle was too much for me to resist.
Mine is arriving on October 27th, or so they say; the first thing I wanna do is stuff my whole library of sheet music on it – no more fumbling to find the right sheet, or squinting to read the words of a russian XVII century church song. No more endlessly replacing music in the small book I am able to hold. I bet however reading choir music on the relatively small screen will be a challenge – watch this space for more early testing impressions.
No more giving up on reading a book when traveling because it’s too heavy to carry; and no more giving up reading a page of a great classic simply because I don’t have it handy; I already made up a list of the first things that will land on my Kindle:
- the Bible
- the Divina Commedia
- Shakespeare’s Complete Works
- Oscar Wilde‘s opera omnia
- Le Monde, the IHT, the Times and the lone italian newspaper that exists in Kindle version, La Stampa – although I fear that keeping up with four newspapers is too much, so I’ll see…
And, by the way, a brand new category: “Journey with Kindle”.
