To eRead or not to eRead?
I have always loved to read an actual book, feel the pages, gaze at the glossy covers. I find the idea of reading a file on a computer hard to get my head around. I’ve tried PDF files on my laptop and I just get fed up and bored, even if the story isn’t. It’s uncomfortable. I can’t snuggle up with it or take it to bed or read it in the bath and this has been the reason why I haven’t rushed out and bought an eReader.
But lately I have been wondering if I should join the millions who enjoy reading ebooks? I hear so many of my Twitter friends commenting about how much they love their Kindle or Sony etc and after reading that Kindle is now available to buy from the UK and there’s a Kindle app for the iPhone, it got me thinking. Should I take the plunge? Am I old fashioned by sticking to the original version of a book? Usually I am ahead of the game and like to keep up with all the lovely new gadgets. But I have no idea what to do with this. Am I missing out? And if I did want to buy one, which one? Can you help? Tell me which eReader you bought and why. Hopefully then I will come to some sort of decision.
