Life is changing. It’s been a number of years since we gave up our newspaper subscription because we just weren’t finding the time in our busy work weeks to sit down and spend time reading the morning news. However, for the last two weeks, I’ve been enjoying a trial subscription to the Kindle edition of The Seattle Times, and it’s been a very interesting experience. There are no photographs, no crossword puzzle, no “funnies,” so the focus is entirely on the writing and reporting. I’d forgotten how much I enjoy reading well-written news. I was trained as a journalist — always worked on the school newspaper, that sort of thing — so I do appreciate good writing. And with my new Kindle, I can try out different newspapers from around the world, carry them all with me in my bag, and rediscover the pleasure of good journalism.
