The Sunday NYT on the Kindle

quite a lovely experience, actually.

granted, it's been ages since I've read the Sunday New York Times – probably more than 5 years come to think of it – having kids and spending an entire Sunday with a newspaper and coffee being two things that don't mix all that well 🙂

So, as you can imagine, I was intrigued to see what the experience of Sunday's NYT on the kindle would be like, and I'm pleased to say that I rather enjoyed it.

Granted, it isn't at all the same.  I do miss the tactile feel of a newspaper, and I loved the photography of the NY Times, especially the magazine. 

BUT – if the choice is between not reading it at all, and actually reading some of the articles – I especially enjoy the Sunday editorials and op-eds, and the week in review – the kindle is a really good compromise that fits nicely into the life of this busy dad.
