I’d never been interested in e-readers. Sure I saw the practicality of them, but I was fine with good ol’ paper books. Then I won a Kindle and I signed up for a blog tour that only provided digital copies so I went in with an open mind.
At first I hated it. I found it really disconcerting not being able to feel my progress through the book; the weight of the book in my hands. I also like to flip back and forth in book which is a pain to do on the e-reader.
But eventually it grew on me. I loved being able to take notes while I was reading and seeing my progress at the bottom of each page. It is also easy to take with me and light to hold.
In the end I decided that I don’t hate e-books but I still prefer paper copies.
What do you think about e-books/e-readers? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
