My ebook experiment has stalled somewhat. This hasn’t surprised some of my friends and family, who pointed out that reading a book on an iPhone was like trying to watch a film on your watch. But, in actual fact, the book I’ve picked works very well on the phone. Yes, the small, back-lit screen is far from perfect. But, because it is always with me and the book is written in very short, digestible chapters, the two marry well. I can pull out the book whenever I have a minute to spare and read a whole chapter. That’s quite a nice feeling.
But it’s not suitable for extended reading periods, and so I’ve picked up the next book on my list. It’s one I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. It’s called Skulduggery Pleasant and it’s by Derek Landy. It’s a kid’s book, but it came highly recommended and, to be honest, I was sold by the description alone. It’s about a magical skeleton detective. Let me reiterate:
A magical skeleton detective.
How cool is that?!?!
