Increasingly, buying a Kindle seems to make more and more sense. Every time I get a link from someone about an interesting read (and I get a lot of those), I save it as a PDF to read later. The ‘later’ rarely, if ever, happens. Pages stored for offline reading have now exceeded 50 in number.
While I still prefer reading physical books, the case with articles and long essays is different. Taking a printout seems wasteful. Besides, I often put off reading because I’m too lazy to go get things printed. The Kindle is selling for Rs.7000 in India. I figured if I read over 15,000 pages on the thing, I would save money by not printing (back-of-envelope calculation, I know).
I guess this should be present to self for finishing 10 things on the 2013 to-do list. Good incentive to get cracking.
