Kindling my enthusiasm

March 13, 2009

I got my hands on a Kindle yesterday.  A client showed me his, and let me poke around it.  As predicted, I’m not a fan.   Granted, my mind was somewhat made up before I had it in my hands.  But the actual tactile sensation confirms that it’s the texture and pages of a book that I like, not purely the information.

However,  as I am about to go on vacation, loaded with fiction, I find that I’ve got a use for the Kindle’s capacity, if not the sensory experience.  If I enjoyed holding and reading it, found its layout relaxing, I’d be ready to get my own and load it with poetry anthologies.

I have my fiction covered, and my contrary mind had the treacherous thought- what about poetry?  But which poetry?  I want a good anthology.  Something like Billy Collins’ Poetry 180: A Turning Back to Poetry but I have both in the series. Is there a third? Or something similar?
