I’m wild about my Kindle, and I’m delighted that now you can read Better Than I Ever Expected on the go — and without the cover (lovely as it is) giving you away in the coffee shop, on the bus, or at your family reunion!

4/1/09 update of 2/12/09 post: I’ve had my Kindle 2 for a month now, and I love it. I’m reading more than ever because it’s so easy to carry as many books as I want in one portable device, and Amazon lets me sample books before buying them. Right now I have about 50 samples on my Kindle — novels, erotica, memoir, sexuality non-fiction, short story anthologies, grief books, and more — along with several purchased books and a subscription to the San Francisco Chronicle.
I just ordered an Amazon Kindle 2 e-book reader for myself. I’ve wanted one forever (at least since Kindle 1 came out) but teased myself with anticipation of the second generation of this device. I love to read and I carry books with me everywhere, and soon I can carry just this little device and have access to all the books I could possibly want.
And yes, this is related to sex. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I want to to carry a book of erotica or the latest sex book I’m reviewing for this blog into the coffee shop, the gym, or the airport, but I leave it behind because the blatent cover or title would bring me unwanted public attention.
As soon as my Kindle arrives, I can carry all sorts of books, including those that people assume a 65-year-old woman doesn’t read! Of course I’ll still have to be wary of people reading over my shoulder or saying, “Oh, is that a Kindle? May I look at it?”
Do you have a Kindle or other e-book reader? What sex-related books do you read on it? An Amazon search on “sex” within Kindle books lists 2,947 books, and “erotica” yields 4,882 titles. That’ll keep me busy.
