Now that I have a non-biking commute I’m excited to start reading more. I’m not sure I buy into the whole good-reads thing that Amazon is pushing on me, but the kindle form factor is nice in that it’s small enough to fit in my back pocket and pull out on the subway.

Also interesting, to setup the device I typed the first three letters of my amazon account ID, and then it logged in. Not sure if there was a race condition where it was checking it’s serial number against amazon’s registration database at the same time, but it was an interesting and vaguely unsettling experience since it has 1-click access to credit card purchases.
