I’ve Gone To The Other Side

I finally did it. I did something I swore I would never do and it still eerks me inside that I did and part of me hates how much I love it!!

I broke down and bought an E-reader. I railed against E-readers for the longest time and for a few reason. One, I do love the feel of book in my hand. I love the feel of the pages, the feel of turning the pages to see what awaits me on the other side and two, as happens to all of us age is catching up with my eyes, my hands and my arms. 

Two weeks ago I bought a novel and it’s SO heavy so that I was having a really hard time reading it not only because my arms are not long enough to put the book at a distance that I could actually SEE the print (think Mr Magoo) but my hands, fingers and arms don’t have the strength they once did and just holding it was a, well lets just say it was a pain and leave it at that.. Literally. So I broke down and bought myself this!

Yep, that is a Kindle Paperwhite E-reader and as much as E-readers still make my skin crawl I have to admit, reluctantly, that I LOVE this gadget and I am not a gadget person but out of all the electronics I have, you know, computer,phone,etc. THIS little E-reader is my most favorite thing and I use it every single day.

Wouldn’t you know it, the novel I so want to finish reading? Isn’t available on Kindle yet.. Major fail, but I have found a lot of great books and will hold out until my novel is available. 

Do you have an E-reader? If so what kind? What do you love or not love about it?

  1. I feel that way towards iphones, haha. But hey, it’s not so bad to lose a battle when the opponent is right to win. Otherwise it’d be stubbornness. Kindle paperwhites are great, right now top of the line for solely reading. I have a Kindle Fire HD, and I love it. I love that it’s much easier to read anywhere (I carry it on my purse, so I can read it while waiting in line, etc). My reading did skyrocket once I got the Kindle, and being that I’m a cheapy for fantasy books, they’re very very cheap through Amazon. You can write to Amazon about that novel and inquire when they’re bringing it about. I am sure they would make a big push to have it on their library if it means getting some of your money.

  2. * Hi. Just to let you know, most libraries allow you to “check out” books for your e- readers. They have even new released novels.
