I Love My Kindle
I recently acquired an Amazon Kindle and I love it!
It’s funny, but not that long ago I swore that I would never have an e-reader.
I love print books — the feel of them and turning the pages and everything about them.
But I live in a very small apartment and was starting to feel the need to simplify my life. My apartment looks like a branch of the local library.
I also am being offered many books for review for this blog. I was getting even more books to fill up my crowded space.
I finally started to realize that I really needed a Kindle.
So I took some of my tax refunds and bought one at Best Buy. It is marvelous.
Within a few minutes, the author’s book is on my Kindle! It saves them the time and expense of shipping a physical book.
I’m sure that the other eReaders are wonderful, too.
I have played around with the Nook at Barnes and Noble, but I decided on a Kindle because so many books are available in that format. Most classic novels published before 1923 are free!
Don’t get me wrong. I still “pledge to read the printed word.” But many books are still not available in eReader format.
I just love sitting in my recliner and having all these books on my Kindle for easy access.
As a matter of fact, I think that I am reading more books than ever.
