{January 3, 2012}   I did not betray real books

I am the new, proud owner of a Kindle Fire. My sweet husband bought me one as a super early Valentine’s gift and so far I am loving it. At the same time, I feel like I am betraying real books a bit. But I really am not at all.
As an owner of just a desktop computer and not a laptop, I love having a bigger screen to browse the net should I choose to as well as watch netflix from the comfort of my bedroom or practically anywhere else. I love the fact I can upload photos, videos and music on it like an Ipad, but the cost was way cheaper.
As for reading, I fully intend to use it for some of that. There are some books released only for kindle that I have wanted to read and if I can find a book I want to read that I haven’t been able to find any other way…why not?
I will still be reading paper back books and hard back books. I don’t see myself ever losing my love for real books. I am simply increasing my avenues in which I have books at my access. What’s wrong with having more and more ways to read?
For now, I have a few “real” books to read through before I read one on my new kindle, though. 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
