My nightstand lately is quite the hodgepodge of reading material. I’ve just finished two of these and I’ve got a full book review I’m working on for The War of Art. What are you reading?
It’s a lifestyle choice, right?! So I’ve not yet jumped on the digital e-reader bandwagon. My mom has a Kindle (circa 2009) and I haven’t been too impressed (more of a *meh* response) and really I make too many notes in the margins of most of my books for an e-reader to even be an option. But that’s usually because I read mostly non-fiction. However, lately, I’ve been adding a lot more fiction to my nightstand / to-read-wish-list, and I think that an e-reader would be most beneficial for this genre (or at least a higher turnover rate). I read at a moderate pace and I usually have multiple books in progress, so I think that an e-reader would be beneficial for this too. Still, in the con column though is the price of an e-book. Yeowzer. Ten to Fifteen dollars?! I’m a total sucker for buying second-hand books for way cheap (or even better — borrowing from my sister because she probably bought it brand new!) However, in the pro column, I found out that you can check out digital books from our library. So… I’m still a little torn. Pro — many books, tiny space. Con — no color cover art to help me choose my selection. 🙂 Really, my biggest con is something I can’t quite articulate. Somewhere in my brain, physical books = comfort. Maybe I just need to try it. Any thoughts? (Hey, Amazon — would you like this self-proclaimed analog lover to test your new, fancy paperwhite? Email me for my deets!) *cheeky, I know*
