Best I could possibly manage would be to resolve not to let the Kindle be an excuse to read even more. And that's a stretch.

I don't think his book is about vampires, but isn't the movie about vampires?

OK, I can now say without fear of contradiction that the Card book has nothing in common with the movie except the name. And I read somewhere that titles cannot be copyrighted.

Starting Lillian Harry's Springtime in Burracombe and Trollope's The Way We Live Now. Those should keep me going for awhile. I've missed Trollope since I finished the Barchester novels.
