I am now reading The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged (Kobo Reader versions on the Blackberry Playbook). Rand was a bit of a nut-case in a lot of respects, but, her observations of a government that invades and controls almost every aspect of life seem apropos for today's news.
I also bought a new Kindle (the third one I've owned). It will be arriving Thursday. This one is the Kindle Paperwhite w/o special offers.
