The Hugo packet holds the siren song of the e-reader

As a supporting member of this year's Worldcon (Chicon), I get access to the Hugo Voter's Packet. As you can see, this Big Bundle O' Stuff is well worth the $50 I spent on the membership... if you don't mind reading books electronically.

I will be on an airplane this afternoon, and so will require something to read. Also, I want to knit. I want to be an educated Hugo voter, and I want to make progress on handicrafts.

The Hugo Voter's Packet, combined with my work-issued iPad, can satisfy these wants while leaving my hands free to knit. I expect to enjoy the books somewhat less than I would in dead tree format, but I will enjoy them to some degree anyway. And if I can't stand it any more, or my iPad runs out of charge, I have my newly-dropped hardback of Home from the Sea.
