My own issues with ADD have helped me realize that to battle this distracted tendency and to manage the distracted-ness of what is coming we are going to have to think about spiritual formation in a much different way. My own journey has convinced me that re-engaging certain monastic practices can empower us to tune out the noise and listen to the still small voice of the Spirit.

This past fall, amazon announced the new kindle 3. And its price of $139 for the non-3g version. For someone who reads a lot, that reduces the ROI to less than a year’s worth of book buying. That was the tipping point for me, so I put in a request for a new kindle as a Christmas present. And as sure as the sun rises in the East, I received one.

Let me first say that I love it. It is a great addition to to my toy collection.

As I read my first book on it, however, I noticed some changes in my reading and how it will continue to change my reading.
