Saying goodbye to Kindle 2

The Kindle 3 is still 23 days away and already the thought of not reading on my Kindle 2 is beginning to bother me.

It’s been a year and 5 months. Books. Checking up facts for posts. Comparisons, Reviews, Photos and Videos.

Playing around with the KDK Beta. KDK Apps are the silver lining – because will still have to test apps on Kindle 2.

Here are the things that are hard to let go of -

  1. The fact that it’s linked to the pleasure of reading.  
  2. The whiteness.
  3. The row of number keys. In an alternative universe Kindle 3 probably still has them.
  4. The slider that almost doesn’t work.
  5. The 5-way that keeps going left instead of down. 
  6. Spending way too much time on Folders and then finding out there’s a way to add all the books at once.
  7. One handed reading in bed.
  8. Pressing Home thinking it’s Previous Page.
  9. Figuring out how to highlight across pages and the disproportionate joy of it.

It’s strange how every purchase seemed wrong – the iPhone, the iPad, the Nook. The Nook seemed the worst of all.

However, the Kindle 3 is – well, it’s the only wrong purchase – because it’s meant to replace my Kindle 2.
