My newest toys

In case you haven’t guessed by now, I am a bit of a tech-head.  I love technology and gadgets and anything new and cool 🙂  Which is why I have a mac (actually two) of course.

Anyhow, today I have two new toys to show you.  This is my magnificent new Kindle:


And these are my new headphones from Bose:

Bose Headphones

There is a good reason for me getting both these toys.  We are going to China and Russia and three of the ‘Stans in April and we’ll be away for a whole month.  We’re travelling by train and that’s a whole lot of reading time for me.  Our last holiday was only eight days and I managed to read six books.  You do the maths.  This is going to save me a lot of space and weight in my luggage.

The headphones are noise-cancelling beasts which are far more comfortable on your ears than the earbuds you usually get with an iPod.  I can use those for about an hour and then my ears start to hurt.  These are going to be MUCH more comfortable for long trips.

    I’ve just finished Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger. I didn’t think it was as good as The Time Traveller’s Wife. Once again there is no happy ending (I think I remember you saying you like happy endings), and it’s about ghosts. I don’t like ghost stories much, and it’s as far fetched as The Time Traveller’s wife, so she sort of lost me there. If you do enjoy a well written ghosts story then you would probably enjoy this one. It includes love, loss and intrigue and some very interesting characters.

    AAAHHHH! I want a reader, but I can’t decide if I want the Kindle or something else. I’ll probably decide I want whatever Steve Jobs tells me I want but then realize that it costs twice what the Kindle costs. 🙂

    oooh, love the kindle cover, where did you get it? I have one that is more like a case, but you have to take the kindle out of the case to read it, which is TEH annoying.
