I was packing up all my books, and these ended up on top:

The Book Collection

Kind of sums me up, really.

Oh, and the fact that the box is nearly a two-man lift, and that’s not all of my collection… A definite argument for eBooks.


New Years Challenge

This sounds like my sort of challenge:

I have a feeling, somewhere deep in my urinary tract, that 2010 will be the year that I can finally live digitally. By this I mean that I can get through life without buying a physical piece of media. Be that DVD, Blu-ray, CD, Book, Magazine or any other thing that has a physical existence.

Instead I shall be surviving on a diet of purely digital media – downloads of music, films and books.

A Year of Living Digitally (Random Acts of Reality – http://randomreality.blogware.com/blog/_archives/2009/12/31/4417117.html)

I’m very much in to my gadgets.  I have a smart phone, an MP3 player and an eBook reader.  Should be pretty easy (… famous last words for New Year’s Resolutions)

To be honest, I do this quite a bit already.  I haven’t bought any new paper books since I got my eBook reader, and I’ve not bought any new CDs for a while, only the odd MP3 single.  I’ll just have to see how the rest goes.  Here’s hoping it won’t go the way of my past New Year’s resolutions.
