Media Diary: Day 4

Hello. If I am awake and at home, my laptop is visible and I am one the internet. I also do not have any cool gear like an ipod, ipod touch, iphone, or blackberry. I do have a Kindle so I may get something new to read tonight.

11:41AM Watching last night’s Rachel Zoe Project on itunes. Show is 45 minutes long.
12:31PM Check email, moderate comments on my MMC6612 blog.
12:34PM Twitter time! Responded to a few questions about a book I love, If You Have to Cry Go Outside, by Kelly Cutrone. Retweeted a message about Digital World’s AV Club from @bendevane.
12:36PM Rereading If You Have to Cry, Go Outside.  Listening to Grooveshark while I do it.

1:28PM Check online banking for bill paying and general finances.
1:40PM Write personal blog post by email Only takes about ten minutes because it’s just a quick update. Other posts I work on can take hours but are usually worked on a little at a time.
2:41PM Shopping for books for my Kindle. Bought:
The Road, Cormac McCarthy
Last Night at Chateau Marmont, Lauren Weisberger

    Is the Kindle new or have you had it for a long time?

    Do you buy most books for the Kindle, or all books? Do you buy any printed books since you got the Kindle?

    Great question! I mostly now buy most of my books on my Kindle mostly because they are novels or nonfiction I am reading for pleasure and it is very convenient to read them this way. I also put the pdfs for class readings on my Kindle – my eyes get tired very quickly on the computer screen and it seems more organized to me to have them in one place. However, I still do buy the occasional printed book either because it is unavailable on Kindle or something inappropriate to be on a Kindle. I enjoy graphic novels and books on art and design and I would not want to read those on a small black and white screen. Plus some books are elegantly presented and designed so I still want to own works like that because they are interesting objects in themselves.
