I have been obsessed with my new Kindle. Rather than write a whole new post about it, I thought I’d share what I wrote for BookEndBabes yesterday. I look forward to hearing about why you enjoy your Kindle, Nook, iPad or other e-reader. Click here to read the post in its original format.
While I usually love to share my latest read with you all, today I’d like to share why I’m an e-reader convert.
For my birthday this year I got a Kindle. For a long time now, I’ve been telling everyone that it just wouldn’t be the same as reading a book. I grew up in the library and love the musty smell of a book just taken off the shelf. I thought I would miss the feel of a book and the turning of the pages.
I’m a convert. The cover I ordered makes it feel as I’m holding a real book, which has made the transition easier. The idea of having a new book right at my fingertips is amazing. I also love the idea of being able to share books with my best friend because she has a Kindle too.
But my favorite part of my Kindle is discovering new authors that I may not have come across if I didn’t have a Kindle. I also love the thought of supporting authors who are just starting out. I am also happy to give back to those who I have met through social media and have afforded me the opportunity to share my thoughts with all of you.
My first download was Jamie’s Let Us Prey. Everyone who loves a strong female character and a good mystery should pick this up immediately. I’m only about halfway through and I love it. A book has to be good to make me almost miss my train stop to and from work on multiple days.
Malena and Vivi you are next!
I’m really glad I embraced this new technology, but I can’t say that I won’t pick up a real book now and again.
