A Moment of Doubt

A weekend away cherry picking, so I thought I’d take the Sony Reader instead of the paperback stack. (A wee confession here- it’s been a few weeks of madness and I haven’t used it for a bit. Yes, I know the review is coming. And so is Christmas.)

Anyhow, I hit the switch to see what books are on board and the Reader is as dead as the proverbial. I plug it into the Mac and wait a minute or so, but no response. And I have that moment of ebook doubt, the one where you have a rant about paper never running out of batteries or crashing.

So I take a breath and leave it for an hour. Luckily for my faith, when I go back to the Reader the familiar screen us once more visible and I can again leave the paperbacks behind.

Now, don’t be too concerned, it’ll take more than a hiccup to bring out my inner Luddite – after all this is being posted from my iPhone. But for a brief moment there…

    You’ll have to develop some recharge discipline. I hate it when I see just two bars on my phone. And my LifeDrive seems to pig-out on electrons these days too (despite having been trannied by removing the HD for CF).

    Yeah, I’m totally on top of the iphone, probably because it’s with me 24/7. The Reader is a weekend only thing. But I’ve learnt my lesson 🙂

    Don’t forget with the iPhone: Phone, video, and other apps all compete for electrons used for reading. There’s that Morphie case with fat battery. Been hearing good things about it.
