Just read this in one (long) sitting. It looks like it might be chicklit but it's not.
Themes: PTSD, child abuse, recovery, friendship. A rewarding read.

1. I'm tired of surveillance technology.
2. I don't need or want to be online 24/7.
3. I've already taken email+calendar off my anrdroid phone, and my car has GPS, so all I'm using the phone for is call/sms & reading ebooks. No google account.
4. Linux phones aren't ready.

Next step: move my SIM to this rather snazzy feature phone I've bought and use my smartphone as a wifi ereader only.

Just finished.

My action figures came with a free collectors edition plinth!
