A Kindle For Me
I never thought I'd buy an e-reader. I love the feel and smell of books too much. I love having them around the house, cramming my shelves and overflowing my night table. But besides being a bookworm, I'm also a big fan of gadgets. Between my husband and I, I'm the one with the iphone, the ipad, the SLR or the latest point and shoot. I just love these things.
When I physically saw the Kindle, I thought it looked amazing...so unbelievably light and so thin. It's a fantastic device. But still I believed I didn't need one. However, during the last few months I've been dying to read certain books that are not available in Manila. If you know the feeling, then you know this can be quite frustrating. I could always order them from The Book Depository but that usually takes 10 or more days and I wanted them yesterday. So that's what finally sold me. Having the Kindle would give me access to books that aren't available here and to new hardbound novels. So I made my order and I got my Kindle yesterday. I love it already! It's amazing and I've already started reading my first book., The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman. So far, it's pretty good. And what are you reading on your Kindle?
