Lately I've been reading on the Kindle. Sometimes I'll get into the story and think about it when I'm not reading. That's like a real book. Sometimes the Kindle book bores me and I never finish, again like a real book. I tend to get bored much easier with e-books than I do with print books.
I miss browsing the bookstore. Browsing the
Kindle store doesn't feel the same. Borders, my favorite sort-of local
bookstore, was a favorite destination. There's just something about
holding a print book in my hand, I love it! I love the smell, the feel,
I miss the loss of bookstores in my
area. But I'm glad there are still options for buying print books
online. Besides my personal favorite (Celerytree.com of course!) there are many other places to find great deals on print books. Amazon is awesome of course, because you can find practically any book that's ever been published, often at a cut rate price. Shopping Amazon for used print books is a trip!
not of the school who believes that print books are dead or dying. And
given the choice, I'll choose the print book over the ebook reading
experience any day.
This B is for Books, preferably in print!
