For an avid reader sharing an extremely small boat with 3 others it is a life saver.
At first I found it frustrating not being able to flip, but I’m learning more and have just discovered how to make notes and highlight, the digital equivalent of my pencil underlines and margin notes.
Also I am hoping it’s better than buying the paper equivalent, but I don’t know, and being on my third kindle I suspect not, though of course it all depends how many books I actually read/have, I suppose.
The first came with a bust screen and the second suffered twin teens trouble ie one pushed, the other sat, hard!
CAT – Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales recently wrote an article What’s the impact of a Book? and it got me thinking about these matters.
I hear your cry…..LIBRARY, LIBRARY…..and yes indeed surely, that must be the best of all, but then I find myself wrestling with my wish for instancy, I want to read it now, right now I don’t want to have to wait. I love that at the click of a button I can have what I want, oh dear!
Ah the trails and tribulations of trying to cut a path to simplicity, much more complicated than you may think!
