I bought another book…

Stopped by Barnes & Noble at lunch and finally picked up Rex Stout’s “Some Buried Caesar” (which the clerk told me was a phrase from Omar Khayyam’s “Rubiat” – now that’s an obscure bit of trivia).

Read another chunk of the Enron book last night; think I will try to plow through the rest of that and then move on to finish the 2nd half of Waverly, rather than try to read them concurrently (too hard to switch back and forth).

I just bought some new books…

Actually, I just bought over 23,000 books via the iPhone “Free Books” App.  It’s awesome.  It has many books by Harriett Beecher Stowe (including Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which I just bought a hard copy of the other day).  It also has “Waverly” by Sir Walter Scott and apparently many of the other “Waverly Novels.”  Most of the books are older ‘classics’ and in the public domain, which is why they are ‘free’ I suppose.  The App actually cost $1.99 but still.  The reader has various text size & background color options and will remember your most recent reads, and where you left off.

I will definitely delay buying one of the commercial E-Readers until I explore the potential of this app.

I am in Hog Heaven right now…
