About ‘Kindle Worm’

My new Kindle Paperwhite on top of my old Kindle Keyboard.‘Kindle Worm’ is a website devoted to my Kindles and the books i’ve read, am currently reading, and hope to read, on them.

I first bought a Kindle Keyboard (see pic) back in 2011, fell in love with it and have since upgraded to a Paperwhite (the Paperwhite is super nice).

Mostly, this website is my virtual bookshelf as i no longer have, or need, a real one. But whereas a bookworm’s corporeal bookshelf is stuck in a room where not many people get to see, a kindleworm’s virtual bookshelf is available for the world to wander through 24/7, and has reviews and plenty of other things that a corporeal bookshelf doesn’t. I love the idea of virtual bookshelves almost as much as i love my Kindle Paperwhite.

As to the reviews, i started writing short ones on ‘goodreads’, and soon after started adding them to my other website, ‘Growing Young’, but they didn’t really fit in there and over time it became obvious that all my Kindle stuff needs its own website to sprawl into freely.

The front page is a fairly standard blog thing with all the reviews i’ve written, and maybe some other occasional things, but mostly it’ll be just reviews. There’s also a whole bunch of books that are waiting to be read in ‘The Pile’, more in the ‘Waiting Room’ and even more, that i’ve read but didn’t review at the time, in ‘The Boneyard’.

As for the rest of the website, please enjoy looking around, the menus on the right of the page cover everything there is to see. And if you want to follow me on social media there’s a whole list of where i post down towards the bottom of the menu column. And no, i don’t use facebook.

And if you come across any ‘Infinite Improbability Drive’ buttons while wandering around, please read the warning by clicking on the link nearby, and keep your mouse pointer well away. They’re mostly there for my own use and one can never tell the infinitely improbable consequences of what might happen if you, the viewing public, engage one randomly to satisfy your idle curiosity.
