Today is Read in the Bathtub Day, which is to say Saturday. Don’t most of us read in the bathtub at least once a week? Well, I’ll put it this way: normal, sane people read in the bathtub regularly, and by that metric at least, I am both normal and sane. (Pauses to reflect on the implications…) Now, I’ve been reading in the bathtub pretty much since I was old enough to read, and over years of intensive practice, I’ve developed the skill of, you know, not getting the book wet. But if you lack such a skill, if (like me) you prefer to read ebooks, or both, there’s a great solution. The latest Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof and prices now start at just $99.99. Now run a nice hot bath and get reading!
