    I just read the Kindle Short eBook “Lying” by Sam Harris last night, and found it to be a thought-provoking little work. Nothing groundbreaking, but putting it all together made for an interesting extended essay.

    I’ve also been reading Stephen Levy’s “In the Plex” which provides a fascinating look behind the closed doors at the Googleplex. It’s a surprisingly long book, though, so that’s why I still don’t have it finished!

    I do enjoy reading, but find that I learn a lot more from full books and long-form reading than I do from random short online articles. That’s why I’m trying to shift more of my personal reading time back to real books … except by default, they’re usually Kindle books on my computer or iPad!

    I’ve pretty much completely switched to Kindle now. I’ve been reading everything from Photography How-to books to a current obsession with Japanese authors.

    I’m reading The Night Circus on my Kindle. It’s pretty good so far. I don’t really have much time to read with other obligations going on but I do enjoy the time I get to read.

    Currently reading “The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Using the Google Books app on my HTC Nexus One.

    I’ve been reading the entire series since it’s all free on Google Books!

      Of all things, I originally read a .txt copy of that from Project Gutenberg on my old HTC Excabular WM 6 phone. Yes, I read whole books on that tiny screen. Makes me all the more grateful for the beautiful Kindle interface on my iPad :D

  10. Rob See on the 22nd September

    I’m reading Rescuing The Future, an engaging sci-fi novel by Vincent Miskell, on my iPhone using the Kindle reader. I just finished reading Memory by Lois McMaster Bujold in paperback.

    I find that I move through phases, one of which is a reading and exploration phase, during which time I’m reading daily (mostly sci-fi). Out of this phase, I’ll switch to technical reading, if I do any reading at all.

      I’m reading Game of Thrones on my iPad/iPhone and I’m loving it too. I also just finished watching the first season of the TV show, which is also brilliant, and quite faithful to the book.
