Just finished reading George R.R. Martin’s A Storm of Swords on my Kindle. I actually own the books, but I find the Kindle is better for reading with the exception of:
- Pictures, in this case maps
- Quickly moving from one section of the book to the other, like you would with a reference book. The Kindle sucks at this unlike the iPad. But the Kindles e-ink is so easy on the eye, very different to using an iPad.

I still remember killing an Orc with 7 hp with a tiltowait spell causing 85hp damage
Tiltowait is “somewhat like the detonation of a small tactical nuclear weapon. The party is protected from its effects. Unfortunately for the monsters, they are not. The spell causes 10-100 hit points of damage to all monsters. ”
Games you played when you were a child are like old Doctor Who episodes, best left to your memories because when you rematch/replay them you regret it. It destroys your memories and and makes you think what bad taste you had, case in point the TV show Knight Rider
