I was a nay-sayer. For a long time. I couldn’t bear the thought of giving up books–real books–paper books that I can hold in my hands and flip through and underline and highlight and love.
But my world has been rocked.
Prior to purchasing my Kindle in May, I almost never read for leisure. I would read for school assignments and while I was at the beach in the summertime, but never before I went to bed or on a rainy afternoon.
Why? Not because I hate to read; in fact, I love to read. But because reading wasn’t convenient. I’m always on the go and lugging around a heavy book in hopes that I would find the time to read it just didn’t work for me. And because of the inconvienence, I didn’t even bother borrowing or purchasing new books. It was a bad, bad cycle.
Since this fantastic purchase, I have read seven books and am on my eighth. Sadly, I can’t say that I’ve read seven books for sheer enjoyment in the past three years of college!
Now, when I’m heading out to nanny, or going to an appointment I always throw my cute little Kindle in my purse. It’s small, light, easy to carry, and fun to read. I even got a sweet pink case for it!
Because I’ve enjoyed the convenience of being able to read where and when I want to, I haven’t missed paper books a bit. Seriously. What good is the feeling of holding a paper book in my hand if I never, ever read one?
Buy one. Bite the bullet. It’s awesome.
Anyone else own a Kindle, Nook, or other E-Reader? How do you like it? Was it hard to part with paper books?
