Here are my thoughts on it:
1. I didn't hate it. At all. Within the first chapter I forgot that I was reading it on a Kindle.
2. At one point I was able to do a search when a character's name came up and I didn't remember who it was. This has actually been something that I've jokingly said before, that I wish there was a Search/Find function on old fashioned books.
3. The note function is really intuitive.
I'm sticking with book-books, and I'm not going to buy a Kindle or Nook. I might use Chuck's Kindle when emergencies happen and the book I want to read just is not available within the city limits. This stands (until I change my mind). Not to mention that I have a stack of about a zillion and twelve book-books I'm dying to read. So.
In other news, here is what I ate, watched, listened to and read this past week.
FOODS MADE HERE IN THIS HOUSE BY SOMEONE WHO LIVES HERE (MAYBE EVEN ME)
Then! He upped the business on this one. He made Herbal Guacamole with Spicy Jicama that was wrapped in Romaine Lettuce and eaten like finger food. That one comes from "Raw Food Living," a not-cookbook by Sarma Melngailis.
Second Avenue Vegetable Korma: This is exactly what you would expect from a mix of veggies, broth, Indian spices and coconut milk. Still good, though. I served it on mashed sweet potatoes instead of rice and put a little of the leftover lite coconut milk into the potatoes to make them fluffier.
Vegetarian Posole: I made this just because I stumbled on the word "Posole" this week and decided I liked it. Although, I've heard tell that making it veg-style pretty much negates the concept of the soup, I still thought it was a nice little bit of food. Nothing special. But I had seconds, so that's something. (Holla, hominy!)
Smokey White Bean Quesadillas: This is this week's winner! How can a person go wrong with my two favoritos: Nutritional yeast and corn tortillas. These quesadillas are filled with a mix of white beans and tomatoes pureed, then nutritional yeast, then liquid smoke and garlic powder and then it goes between two tortillas and gets all fried up and loaded with taco fixings.
American Splendor: Gah! This was so good. It's a mix of bio pic-documentary about the writer Harvey Pekar. That was so so interesting. Includes a fictitious version and the real live dude. Totally, totally loved it.
Demolished Thoughts: This Thurston Moore album is like taking a way-back machine to 1990s Beck. And since that is actually the sound I want to hear right now, I'll take it.
The Alcoholic: Totally liked this graphic novel with words by Jonathan Ames, pictures by Dean Haspiel. It's heavy on memoir-y.
Full review will be here.
Your Voice in My Head: A Memoirby Emma Forrest: This review will be a) thought about; b) written; c) posted here. Until then I have no opinion.
