Kindle or book?




 Kindle or book?  I will always need both. Will you?

     I’ve always been an avid reader. I was never without a book and would read whenever I could. I even have a library of books on CD for long car trips. I love the smell of a book store and the feel of the paper on my fingers as I turned each page. Then I got my kindle and my book shelves got dusty and I had no reason to stop at our local bookstores, or so I thought.
    E-readers are amazing. They hold hundreds of books, magazines and newspapers. They fit in your purse and you can buy a new book with just one click. So what's the downfall?  I can’t think of any, can you?  With today’s technology you can turn anything into an e-reader. Your PC, Smartphone, iPod and so on, so what keeps the bookstores thriving?
     I know you’re saying to yourself, not everyone has an e-reader. Not everyone likes today’s technology, and you’re right. But there is another very important reason why the book stores will remain open for me…water.
    My two favorite things to do cannot be done together unless I have a paperback, and sometimes that can be a disaster. I love to go to the beach and take long hot baths and my kindle does not like sand or a hot steamy bathroom. So I will always need a book I can hold on to. How about you? What is your reason to keep your library growing?

  1. Congratulations on your upcoming release, Lynda :) On books--I'm leaning more toward Kindle/e-books as I can no longer house boxes and boxes of paperbacks in my attic. I'll still buy paperbacks, but when I'm in a rush to find a book, I'll Kindle it and be done with it. E-books save me from going out in the streets and dealing with horrible drivers and bad weather :) That said, I still enjoy both paper and e-books, but definitely these days 80% of my book purchases are e-books.

    Bookstores? I go into bookstores for the coffee bar and blueberry muffins :) jk, my husband enjoys browsing as the books he reads are all technical manuals. I still love the brick and mortar feel of a bookstore, though, and holding books in my hands.
