With my new job comes a Sony digital reader -- AND I just found out that my class has been randomly selected to test out the Kindle for Classroom, so I'll be getting a Kindle, too! (I don't get to keep either of them, but still.)
What a great chance to test them both out at the same time and see whether my assumptions are correct. The great thing about the Kindle is that I won't have to purchase any textbooks for this semester--they're included for free on the device when I pick it up. Most of the books that I read I get from the library, so it will be interesting to test out the library's ebook rental system--I've used it before to read books on my computer, but I don't know how it works to put them on an ereader. And the great thing about the ereader is that since I have a whole new list of books to learn, it will be much easier for me to cart them around.
I received word today that my tuition reimbursement will be included in this pay cycle, so I should find out on Monday whether or not it actually goes through.
I also realized that I am speaking in front of a group of students in two weeks--and haven't worked on my speech! I think I need to get right on that this weekend. My alma mater invited me to go back to speak to my department's students about how you really use your degree in the real world. I'm looking forward to it, and will also visit with my parents and grandparents and see some good friends. But I need to write a 30 minute speech, um, pretty soon. And also book a rental car.
