I arrived safely in India this morning at 3:00 am (local time - 3:30 pm in Iowa). There was a long line at customs, so I didn't arrive at the guest house until 4:00. Of course I couldn't get to sleep immediately, so I decided to read.
Which brings me to Ken. Ken is great. Lightweight, easy to read, held his charge. The only problem I had is with the book I decided to read first. "Izzy & Lenore" by Jon Katz. One of my fellow Cardi bloggers recommended this book to me. It's a great book, but NOT a book for a plane. Why not a book for a plane? Because it's a tear-jerker. I've done the sobbing on public/mass transport thing before, and I've got to tell you, it's not for me. Not only is this a tear-jerker, it's so good that I didn't want to put it down. But, after the second tissue and some concerned looks from my fellow passengers, I just had to do it. The joy of the Kindle? It took me no time at all to find another book to read. No rummaging through my carry-on. No cursing because I left the book at home. Just back to the "home" menu to choose another book. I think this relationship with Ken is really going to work out.
Back to my day. After falling asleep at ~7am, I woke at 10:30 to get ready for meetings all afternoon (thank goodness for caffeine). Now it's 8pm and I'm going to sleep.
Or maybe I'll read a bit first....
