The changing face of books!!


So this week it's all about books. I LOVE books. I love the feel of books, the smell of new books, I love everything about them. And when I pass a book shop I go all glassy eyed and have to go in there.

And I treasure my books and treat them well. I never, ever, ever, turn the corners of the pages down and get very upset if I see anyone doing it. I always use a bookmark and when I've finished reading a book it still looks like new.

My only problem is living in NZ and Australia, books are double the price as anywhere else. I mostly buy my books through Book Depository in the UK because they're loads cheaper and they ship for free.

Plus, when we go on vacation my suitcase is weighed down by all my books. I'll often read one book a day.

So...... with that in mind, for my birthday I got a Kindle!!!! O. M. G. It's amazing. I can take it anywhere in my purse, without it being too heavy.... the hair salon, doctors, dentist.... I've never had such an awesome present.

And........ although I never thought I'd hear myself say this, I'm not sure I'll buy a book again (okay, I will probably buy non-fiction reference type books but not fiction).

So what about you..... an ereader convert?

I bought myself a Kindle last year and I bought myself a Nook for my birthday this year. I never really liked the idea of digital books, but when I moved to Florida (from California) my husband told me there was NO WAY I was bringing all my books with me :( so having a Kindle at the time was a good idea.

Plus I like how all my books are right there and easy to choose from :) but I still do prefer physical books!

I bought a Kindle last year. I have A TON of books in print (so many I could open a library!). I was stoked when my Kindle arrived and I immediately started loading a bunch of free books on it. I'm never without a book now between my print books and my Kindle! I love it. I'm getting ready to go on vacay and I'm so glad that I have my Kindle so I'll have more room in my suitcase! :)

One of my closest friends recently got herself a Kindle. I understand why people have been getting them, but I'll never get one. Print books are as CDs are to me. Nothing can be matched to actually holding the real product in my hands.

Plus I don't read that quickly so one book can keep me occupied for a whole holiday. I'll make sure to bring a really good one so I can re-read if necessary.

I still haven't gotten an ereader, I have tried them and wasn't a huge fan except for the ereader on the Ipad and I won't be affording that one any time soon, ha.

I've had a Nook for about a year and a half now and I love it. I got it primarily to save space as my house looks like a home for wayward books at this point but not I like it for other merits as well including the ability to throw over a hundred books in my purse, free downloads, and the reduced price of books. I still buy regular books but much of my purchases have switched over.
