more mini book reviews...
A lot of this is from the Humble eBook Bundle, marking the time that my phone really came into its own as an ebook reader. The effect on my reading patterns was interesting; for instance, I would have read Zoo City faster, but my phone kept running low on battery, and as I also need it to be a phone, I had to enforce breaks. On the other hand, the only reason I didn't abandon Invasion partway through was because it was right there in my pocket at all times. It may be time to look into a more dedicated e-reader, except most of those are bigger than my pocket, and my pocket real estate is limited already.
