For a long time, I’ve been totally against e-books. I thought nothing could be better than holding a book, curling up in a blanket, and drinking some wine. While I still love the tangible book, I’ve come to appreciate the beauty of e-books.
I started by downloading the Kindle app on my iPhone. It was a bit difficult because of how small the screen was, but it wasn’t terrible. So, I decided to get myself an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. Since Net Galley books are only available as digital copies, it gave me another reason to get the Kindle.
I’ve had the Kindle for a week now and have come to find that I’m actually reading more than with the paperback books. It’s really easy to use and it’s easier to carry around. I will always have another book on hand if I finish the one I’m reading.
I don’t think I will completely convert to e-books, but will appreciate what both e-books and paperbacks have to offer.
However, Nicholas Sparks books are the only ones I will have to have as paperback copies. He’s my favorite author.
What are your thoughts on e-books and paperback books?
