Book, Nook, Kindle, E-Reader?
I love the feel of a book in my hands. I love the smell of the pages. But I also love my Kindle and the convenience of tucking this marvelous little contraption into my purse to take with me almost anywhere I go. I also love organizational and office supplies. But that’s another post for another day.
No matter how you read it, store it, carry it, or what you call it ….. it’s the stories we love. And we die hard readers will take it in either hard copy or electronic. It’s true, there’s just something wonderful about holding a book in your hands and actually turning the pages. But when you find yourself having to wait on someone or something….an appointment, a delay, or whatever…and you’re able to whip your trusty e-reader out and catch even a chapter or two….well, it’s downright bliss. I’m no longer in a doctor’s office waiting an unreasonably long time to be seen. I’m somewhere else entirely, and it doesn’t matter that I’ve already waited 30 minutes for my appointment. When they do call my name, I’m thinking, “Why’d they have to call me when I’m at this really good part in my story?” LOL
Books have always been a joy to me. And honestly, I can’t understand it when someone says they don’t enjoy reading. That just baffles me. I guess I’m just not wired that way. I love historical fiction, contemporary romance, and historical romance. Those are the ones I favor the most.
If you’re a die hard reader, what’s your favorite genre to read in? And do you prefer a book or an e-reader? Or do you — like me — like both?
