i love books!
i love reading.
I've always been a bit of a book purist & refused to get any kind of E-Reader. I prefer to feel the book pages and hold a real book in my hands as I read.
My book collection is by far one of my prized possessions.
While the movers were still bringing in boxes I started unpacking my books and lining them on the shelves. I was just so happy to be reunited with my books!
Even though I will always consider myself a true book purist, I am starting to contemplate getting an e-reader.
Me?! With an E-Reader?!
What am I thinking!?
I will still buy real books when I can, but it makes sense. I have the bookshelf pictured full of books, plus another 2 that I share with Jeremy's books. I really don't have the room to store them. There is no room for another bookshelf in the house we currently live in so I'll have to be a bit creative. In our last house I used to line them up on the windowsills, but this house doesn't have windowsills big enough to hold any books.
Also, with our lifestyle, we travel a lot. We travel to see family, we like to go on vacations, and as our last move proved, we can be separated from our belongings for a long time! I was separated from my books for 5 long months, and during that time I purchased 17 books. (That's how much I read!!) 17 books takes up a lot of space when you have limited room in your suitcases!
So it just makes sense for me to get an E-Reader. Just for the convenience.
Maybe I'll ask for one for my birthday this summer.
Anyone have an E-Reader?
What kind do you have, and what do you love/hate about it?
Jer has a nook colour & I think I'll probably get one as well, but I'm wondering what everyone else thinks?
Words I live by!
