Reading Books on a Pda
I am a book accumulator.
Of all the things in the world, I tend to accumulate books. I haven't really found a good way to deal with this proclivity, but two things that I've realised are
(1) It can get expensive, particularly if you move often and don't want to accumulate too many things
(2) It can get heavy if you can't decide which book you want to read (which can stop you from wanting to walk as far, etc)
One solution literally fell into my lap, in the form of a second hand pda.
With this, you can read documents for class in plain text or pdf format. You can read all the classics for free, and you can avoid taking up space and having a massive collection of paper that you are not using. My pda uses very little energy-- it has to be recharged about once a week if I read while on public transportation and at night for that week.
