I didn't think I would like an e-reader.
I love books! I love the feel of them. The smell of them. The flipping of the pages. The cover art. I find true joy in books.
But still... people kept talking about their Kindles and Nooks and I felt a little left out. A little behind the times. So I decided to get one. I figured if I didn't like it, my husband could use it for the books he reads for work.
I love it!
I read several books at a time. With the Kindle, they are all right there in one place. No piles of books. No searching the house to find what I want to read. All I have to do is touch the screen a couple of times and I've switched from one book to another.
Kindle automatically saves my place. When I open up a book, it opens directly to where I left off.
I can get library books without risk of a fine because when the time runs out, the book simply vanishes from my Kindle.
I can get a lot of free books. So far everything I have on my Kindle was free.
It fits in my purse better than a book.
It's easier to hold than a book.
I still love books. I always will. I can't imagine ever being without real books. But I also really love this reader.
I love books. Love the feel, smell, and look of them. But it turns out what I really love is the words.
