I finally got a Kindle for Christmas, a WiFi + 3G version. It’s my second try with a dedicated ebook reader, first one was Sony Reader Pocket Edition that I got back in Spring.

I’ve spent quite a long time brainstorming different domain names, but then I thought that if it’s my personal blog and I’ll be writing about everything and nothing in particular, why not to use my own name.
