I was given an Amazon Kindle by my wife for Christmas. It’s something I’ve been meaning to get for a while, well truth be told something my wife has been insisting I get for a while. My book collection is slowly taking more and more room on the limited shelves we have, so the purchase of the Kindle is a god send.

Looking on the Amazon site I’ve already earmarked several books, though my first purchase is a self published story by someone I met via Twitter. The  Copper Promise: Ghosts of the Citadel by Jennifer Williams is a fantasy novella and the planned first in a series all set in the same universe.

I plan on getting The Hobbit next, never read it even though I’ve read Lord of the Rings at least four times – and The Silmarillion twice.
