Doing lots of random reading today. Keeps my mind occupied. On paper, I just finished The Professor and The Madman by Simon Winchester. Great story about the people who compiled the OED. On my kindle, I’m reading House of Stone by Anthony Shadid, Understanding the Middle East by Edward Trimnell, and today when I need brain candy, Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. Every book in the series, one after the other.

I love my Kindle. Of course everyone loves paper books, and I love browsing through my book shelves. But with my kindle, I can use libraries, buy books, and share books, all without braving the Cairo streets. I can carry my entire library with me where ever this nomadic life takes me.

Grateful for good books, their power to educate, inspire, and provide escape.
