I still prefer my iPad mini as a Kindle reader, but this little thing goes where I have to travel light and use little power. Like campouts. Which is why I bought it.
That said, I’ve found another advantage: minimum-distraction reading. I power through more reading on this, as with my iPad I am constantly taking detours into maps, Wikipedia, etc. With the Paperwhite, it’s all about the text, and I zoom through.
Last Saturday, reading intermittently as I followed my wife around Westfield UTC, I shot through a full fifth of Max Hasting’s superb Armageddon: The Battle for Germany 1944-1945. Next up: a book on Agile project management, then about a dozen articles and essays. That should cover me through the weekend.

Thank G-d for small miracles.
My favorite tent ever. Retro look, seven feet long, easy up, easy down, weighs two pounds, fits into a bag the size of a 32-ounce Nalgene bottle, and set me back a whopping $52 delivered.
I should buy two.
Clearly, the folks at SCRIBEdelivery want me to develop a pen obsession to go with my notebook fetish.
Love the sticker, BTW.
Had lunch next to a Baker’s dozen of Chief Petty Officers from NBVC.
Elk burger. With avocado. Almost no fat in the meat, but tons of flavor.
Thank you, Deschutes brewery, for an amazing dinner in Portland.
Stumptown Roasters: beauty in a cup.
