So this is a never ending conversation that I have with people when they see me reading, whether I have a paperback, hardback, kindle or iPhone. Why are you reading like that when you could be ____? That’s one thing that I can say I don’t really have preference and I have all different types of books. It really just depends on what I’m doing and where I’m going.
I guess I really got interested in e-books back when I was in when I was moving around so much. I remember carrying around no less than 40 or 50 books when I traveled. It gets ridiculous after a while. Especially when you have more books in your suitcase than you have clothes in it. (I did that in high school! Who needs clothes anyway right.)
I have three different versions of the e-book reader. I have a kindle Keyboard, my kindle app on my iPhone and iPad as well as my ibook app on each as well. I love the fact that I can have 100s of 1000s of books at my disposal rather than the few books that I can keep in my purse. When I first got my kindle I actually sold most of my books with the exception of a few favorite series. (You know like Harry Potter)
However, there is nothing like going into a bookstore or a library and getting a handful of new or even old reads and sitting in a corner away from everyone and losing yourself in a good read. I’ve done this in so many places that I can’t tell you how much I enjoy it. I’ve actually gotten to the point that I’m slowly rebuilding my library back up from when I did my purge a few years back. It’s taking me a while but I’m getting there.
Question of the day: What do you prefer an actual book or do you like the convenience of the e-book? Comment down below.
Until Next Time!
