You know you're hooked when...
It's got to the stage where friends seeing me read a made-from-paper book feel compelled now to give me a gentle ribbing about "old" technology.
But in the last couple of days I've been aware of a couple of brain twists that show me the depth of my ensnarement in my Kindle.
Twice now I've looked for the little white toggle button that lets me look up a word meaning in the dictionary/thesaurus.
The problem is that what I have had in my hand is not my Kindle but the "old" technology, made-from-paper book that I'm currently reading.
Of course the other twist is, when you read about an interesting book, and you think "I wonder if Amazon has it", and before you know it your fingers have done the walking, and you are already on the brink of purchase.
