All I wanted to do was do some light reading

It’s 2.20 am in Dhaka and I’m having trouble falling asleep. I have to wake up early in the morning tomorrow (or rather, today), but I don’t want to force myself to sleep either. That’s mainly because that never works.

So I took to my Kindle Paperwhite. Kindle Paperwhite was the best thing that I purchased during my last visit to Park City, Utah, US. And believe me, I’ve bought a lot of things. Sony A6000 mirrorless camera, iPhone 6s 64 GB model and a bunch of other things.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my iPhone 6s as much as I love the Sony A6000. It’s an amazing camera and the other one is an amazing camera. But the reason I say Kindle Paperwhite is the best thing that I’ve purchased is because it will actually make me go back to my reading habit.

I used to read whenever I eat something. During breakfast, lunch, dinner, and every other meal in between those, I’d read books. Then, I fell out of the habit as computers and smartphones took over my habit of spending time.

I still read, but my reading is largely limited to reading news articles, how-to tutorials and things like that. It’s been a long time since I read some real books — fiction — that I used to read back in the childhood.

It’s late at night and I got my Kindle Paperwhite to do some light reading before I finally fall asleep. Sadly, I’m greeted with the ‘charge your Kindle now’ screen. I thought, ‘No problem, I’ll just plug it into my power bank.’

Well, five minutes in, it’s still in that screen. Looks like luck won’t let me do some light reading tonight.
