Books have always played a large part in my life, and the feel and smell of a book can conjure up so many emotions.
When the Kindle first appeared, I looked down a rather snooty nose at it, considering it yet another screen we had to peer at, and worship.
Then, someone gave me one for Christmas, and I've never looked back. It's been quite liberating, allowing me to declutter, and pass on so many volumes to charity or friends.
I can read lying on my back, my side, upside down in the loft, in the bath (it's waterproof) on the bus or train, and I don't have to pack an extra suitcase when I go on holiday. I can change the background, the print size, and pretty much tailor the reading experience to my own needs, something you can't do with a book.
Don't get me wrong, my first love will always be a physical book, that you can hold, and smell. But I was wrong about the Kindle.
Anyone else fall in love with an e-reader? Kobo for instance, I've got one of them as well.
