Okay, I am pooping myself with excitement ever since I found WB has a book board. Ugh. . .not really, but I AM excited lol.
So, I want to know: are you for #TeamEreader or for #TeamBook and why?
My fabulous mother purchased a Kindle Keyboard four years ago for me when I was unsure of whether or not I’d like a reading contraption. There’s something about the feel and the smell of an actual book in your hands, you know? I decided to give in and get the Kindle, since Amazon always has an amazing return policy if I didn’t like it. Well, it turns out I fell in love with it. Instantly getting novels on your device, not having to find (more) space for physical books in my home, Amazon e-book discounts are AMAZING. I just really fell in love with it. I loved it so much, that I purchased the newest Kindle Paperwhite. I wanted to play with it in person before I purchased it because 1.) It’s backlit and I wasn’t sure how the shadows would appear on the device, and 2.) It’s touchscreen. If it showed any smear from my fingers, then it would have been a big time no go for me. I was pleasantly surprised how. . . perfect. . . it was!
I will always love real books, but I adore the convenience of the Kindle. : )
I haven’t tried any other e-reader, so I cannot comment on those. What’s your take on e-readers vs. real books?
