A Kindle lover without a Kindle Oasis
April 14, 2016
Kindle’s are awesome. Kindle’s are amazing. Kindle’s are possibly one of the best inventions in literacy since the printing press. My Kindle collection includes every model from the original Kindle released in 2007 all the way through the Paperwhite gen 3 (actually several of the PW3’s). However, right around the time of the Paperwhite, Amazon’s eInk Kindle’s started to falter. The Voyage was a great unit which I was tempted to purchase on numerous occasions, but The Verge said it best: “this is the best E Ink e-reader I’ve used, and it’s unquestionably the best that Amazon has ever made. The thing is, it’s only marginally better than the fantastic Paperwhite”. Needless to say, that model was not added to my collection. Yesterday was the release of the brand new Kindle Oasis, but I’m fairly confident that my collection will sadly continue to be lacking the “latest and greatest”.
Book Review: The End of All Things (Old Man's War Book 6)
August 11, 2015
Today marked the release of “The End of All Things” by John Scalzi. This is book 6 of the “Old Man’s War” (OMW) series, which started which started in 2005. For those that don’t know, this book is a collection of 4 novellas previously published starting in June of this year, plus some additional material. As I’ve already read the novellas, I can say with certainty that this book continues Scalzi’s excellent OMW universe. It closely follows the format and story lines from book 5, The Human Division.
