You know, this week's books are being chosen because they'll fit into my concert purse because I have four U2 shows to wait for.

Sometimes when I finish a book right before traveling I choose the next book or two based on how they'll fit into my luggage.

No kidding. I got lucky when I went to one of his aftershows. He was only two hours late.

This is why I like my Kindle - it fits easily into my concert-going purse. And I can read in the dim light of a club!

I only use my iPad as a reader when i am on a long trip, otherwise, I always prefer the actual book. Cannot see that ever changing.

lol, I was only kidding because Martha and I saw Prince on the same night and when I came over to say hello before the show, she was sitting there reading. This was during his Forum residency, he more or less hit the stage on-time most nights.

Also, Martha forgot this happened a few months later when she claimed that she had never met me. That's the sort of impression I make.

But, hey, Prince!

The books I read frequently don't get published for e-readers.

I was so overwhelmed by your amazing presence that as a survival technique my mind had to slowly process the glory of meeting you.


 
Or I'm just a doofus. You decide.


Prince!

I thought reading off my iPad would be horrid, but it was not so bad...just, not quite the same for me personally without being able to turn pages, etc.....lame, probably, but it's the way it is. But, yeah, not the apocalypse when i do read from the nook or kindle app. Was a lifesaver when I lived in Germany, that's for sure.

Oh, man, Prince!!!

I was always skeptical about the idea that Reading Is Sexy, but here it is in the Prince thread.

I just wanted 2 say that I really like Sign o' the Times. It ends very strongly if you exclude the live track, The Cross and Adore are amazing and I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man might even be my fav Prince song somedays.

What's there to be skeptical of?

Reading is sexy.
