The reason why I don't buy books these days is because I don't have a proper storage for them. And most of the time, I only read them once so I'm always borrowing books (which also makes me read them faster! I still haven't read books I bought two years ago). Only problem with borrowing books is that I am unable to claim it from my income tax which rebates us for books purchased every year.

So when KS told me about Kindle, the device that's the iPod of books from Amazon, it sounds like the perfect solution! Anyone tried this gadget yet? It cuts down paper use, saves space and you'd sure look cool with a gadget like that on the LRT! Plus the people around you won't know what you're reading so I could be reading a kiddie book and not feel embarrassed.

Yeah but it is not the same, the crisp feel of the pages, the smell of the ink. I found that reading too long on a screen makes my eyes water. Nah, it's the old fashioned way for me.

Just minus off from income tax anyway and if they EVER come after you to check for receipts, start borrowing from sisters, friends, colleagues, anyone!
