Resuming a 2.50 decade old habit of mine
Reading Books !
On 11 Jul, 2017 I bought a Kindle Oasis from Amazon, thinking it would be a great boost to my lifestyle getting to read books on a digital device and going forward into the ‘supposed’ to-be new way of lifestyle. So I bought 2 kindle books for my self and got started into reading using it almost immediately.
But there was a problem - I just couldn’t feel it so comfortable reading into it after spending 10+ hours on the laptop for work. It was NOT an escape from a busy digital lifestyle. I was back onto a smaller screen which was like a laptop with an app that all it could do was to download and read eBooks from Amazon Kindle store.
This just didn’t feel so cool anymore ! Then I got my mother to use it to read her books - well … it was just one book and the bookmarking feature was too limited to get into using it. Anywhow she read 1 or 2 books and was done with it. So there went my $300 Kindle Oasis ! I charge once a few months just to check if it’s still working - and it still is, when checked today.
Maybe the next gen would use it by default instead of reading from paper based books. But sometimes new tech won’t be able to catch on for everyone inlcuding myself at close to 42 years of age. I can imagine Glasses would not resolute for anyone not a teenager any more. I am talking about the majority even if it's 60%.
So I bought one tech book in 2021 which I still have yet to finish and 3 more this year (2 are not techical but biz related with the tech mindset). And I intend on finishing the 2 non-tech books by this year end and one tech book fully by this year.
