Hello, Kindle + adorable Kate Spade case for Christmas. Thanks, attentive boyfriend.
He also preloaded me with:
Aurorarama, Jean-Christophe Valtat
The Madonnas of Echo Park, Brando Skyhorse (’cause we live there)
Everything Here Is the Best Thing Ever, Justin Taylor (most excited about this one, as per Vol. 1 Brooklyn’s recommendation)
The New York Times Book Review subscription (reading tomorrow’s currently…look forward to Justin Taylor’s review of Barry Hannah’s Long, Last, Happy)
And we just added Super Sad True Love Story, Gary Shteyngart (because I haven’t read it yet, unacceptable, and also, since my Kindle is linked to the boyfriend’s credit card, being button-happy just got so much more rewarding.
Favorite thing about the Kindle so far: the screen savers. I keep turning it off, turning it on, and turning it back off again, trying to get Mark Twain.
