"I will never do this or that..."
Yeah, came back and bit me in the butt.
I said I didn't want to read books on an electronic device. I meant it at the time.
But then I got a great deal on a new Paperwhite Kindle, and I was in love.
If you recall, I tried starting a library here at the apartment complex. I had Israel tote hundreds of books I'd been gathering over the years to the laundromat.
In a day they were all gone, never to be returned.
Okay, so that didn't work out.
I talked to some other bloggers who simply love their Kindles. I was edging closer and closer to a real game changer.
Then I got this super deal on Amazon.com, and went for it.
And I love it!
One added benefit is that I can read in the dark. I love it when I know I'm saving on electricity. I don't even have to wear my glasses. Love that!
I thought the screen wouldn't be big enough. I was wrong.
I can get a book in seconds and be able to read it.
So now I'm sold. Eating my own words.
Every night after supper and chores I can't wait to get back to the bedroom, dogs snoozing beside me, and read. I have a plethora of books to choose from.
I find that I'm reading more books this way.
I can "check" out books from the library.
Linda from A La Carte introduced me to BookBub, and you get many books free or for under $2.
If I ever say never again, remind me of the time (okay, the many times) that I said I didn't want to read a book electronically. That I only wanted the real thing in my hand.
Well of course nothing could ever replace the feeling of a book in your hand and turning pages.
But opening a book with a swipe to the page you last read is quite nice.
Having a whole library of books you've downloaded, all ready and waiting to be read whenever you want, is just handy dandy.
