Over 365 Days Later

Last June, I wrote about buying my first Amazon Kindle. It was a purchase I had contemplated, on-and-off, for over ten years. I followed the post up, over ten weeks later, with a progress report.

In the update, I stated that I had used the device every day since I first switched it on. The daily usage has continued into this year.

Kindle Stats June 2022

You can see, in the image above, that yesterday was the 367th straight day of reading using my Kindle. 

I cannot see a day when this streak will come to an end because the device has become a part of my daily routine. Especially at night time when I am trying to shut down at the end of the day. 

Even after a year of usage, I am still surprised how all-in I have become with eBooks because I valiantly fought, for many, many years, in favour of physical books. 

I suppose I still prefer the smell and feel of having a proper book in my hand. That hasn't completely ended. However, I find the convenience of the eBook reader to be a very strong plus hence my constant use of the Kindle in the year I've owned one.

As of the time of writing I have read sixty-seven books on the Kindle. At the end of the ten week update, I listed the nine titles I had read up to that point. Here's everything I've read since:
