I bought a kindle about a month or two ago. It's fabulous, especially since I downloaded a program that lets me upload fanfics I've saved to my computer as kindle-readable files. But I was sitting down and reading something or other, and I was struck by a sudden realisation. "Holy shit!" I thought, as I pushed a button to turn a page, "I live in the future! It's like, the 21st century!" It was a very exciting thought.
