Monday and off work... a typical day with Aiden. We rode our bikes to the park. He is awesome on his two wheeler. Then back to the house for the 900 millionth game of Chutes and Ladders. He won and in a pretty short time for that game which is a blessing because it can take a while. I pretended to cry when I kept getting sent down the slides and he would say "remember be a good loser and a good winner" So cute. Now Kelly is putting him down for his nap and I can get some rest. I am reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. It's slow at first but now I am totally into it. I am reading it on my Kindle. Really, paperbooks, traditional newspapers and eventually magazines they are going to be obsolete eventually. I was reading an article in the NYT about the Kindle and Alexie Sherman, an author I really like (he wrote the autobiography of an indian or soemthing like that), commented that he saw a woman reading a kindle on an airplane and he wanted to kill her. I guess the electronic book is screwing the moneymaking for the writers. Which I don't agree with but just like journalists and recording artists they better get with the times and try to make electronics work for them and not against them because there is no way it is going to go back. It is only going to get more high tech in the future. Before we know it we will have electronic walls in our houses with electronic paintings. Which book was that? Farenheit 451? I think so... that was an awesome book.
