What are you reading?
« on: December 13, 2012, 08:53:54 AM »
Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and would like to know if you use your nexus 7 for reading books....and if so, what are you reading. I am currently reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Pride and Prejudice. The Nexus makes a for great reader and let me know what you're reading with yours.

George Martin's "Fire and Ice Series" is my current read, but one of my favorites, which I often reread chapters from is "Once a Runner" by John L. Parker.

'Outliers' by Malcolm Gladwell.   Sorta the anti-Ayn Rand.  Good read and reaffirms a lot of what I've thought about the support systems that create success.

I'm reading the Wheel Of Time series,  By Robert Jordan.  Since I am still annoyed With Amazon over my experience with the Kindle fire HD,  I bought these books from the google play store.  I actually like the play books app better than the Kindle app.

Most of my N7 reading is magazine subscriptions:  Popular Science, Consumer Reports, The Smithsonian:  Just to name a few.  I also listen to a lot of audio books on both my N7 and Galaxy Note II.
I used to be crazy until I found out that insane pays more.

Where am I?  What am I doing in this handbasket?

Not really much of a book reader myself, makes me sleepy...lol

I prefer tech news apps like Flipboard,  Dribbler, NVision. I read allot of comics on my comiXology app and I just bought my first Magazine on Play Magazines....yes it was an Android magazine... ;)

We're in agreement on Google Currents.  I like it so much that I've uninstalled Flipboard on all of my gear.

I'm 13th & 5th on my county library's waiting list for the 2nd & 3rd books in the Hunger Games trilogy. My library system has 11 ebook licenses for those books, so I hope my wait isn't too long.

I'm not the lowest of the low, but I am the slowest of the slow. 49.6 mpg avg for 38k miles in non-hybrid Scion xB
