Even more exciting for my book-consuming ways, after the World's Oldest iPod finally conked out, I got a new iPod in the mail. I have a hard time conceptualizing how this small device can actually be "bigger" than my laptop, but I was thrilled that (thanks to storing my iTunes library on an external hard drive) I was able to load 3,728 songs, 4557 photos, and all 73 of my stored-up audiobooks onto this tiny little thing. It still has as more empty space on it than my original iPod had space.
So no more having to pick which precious few audiobooks got loaded onto the iPod. What book security! To have 73 books there at my fingertips wherever I go.
As for book-books, here's the list:
Food Lover's Guide to Portland by Liz Crain (I have been waiting for this ever since I interviewed Liz, here)
Peaceful Places Los Angeles: 110 Tranquil Sites in the City of Angels and Neighboring Communities by Laura Randall (from the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program)
Enduring Love by Ian McEwan
How to be Good by Nick Hornby
Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld (this has guilty pleasure written all over it)
