While researching today, I came across a book that I simply must have. It's an older title and now out of print. When I saw the price, I blanched. There was no way I could afford it.
Then I looked at the Kindle price - $12.
And now I'm seriously considering buying an e-reader. As a historical fiction writer, the ability to download books that are cheaper and that I need now is a huge bonus. Plus, I can store my documents on the Kindle, too.
But I'm still a little hesitant. I am a true book lover and holding the actual book in my hand, thumbing through the pages, and not having to press the "on" button to read it is, quite simply, heavenly.
I always take awhile to warm up to technology. It took me forever to buy a cell phone. It took me forever to join Facebook. I was dragged, kicking and screaming, to both of those "modern" phenomenon.
It's the same with the Kindle, only more so because I love books.
Those of you with Kindles, tell me about your experiences. Love it? Hate it? Can't live without it?
