Overkill? Maybe. I’ve been reading a tonne lately. Paperbacks, ebooks… The summer just feels like a good time to read. I’ve spent a lot of time recently reading on my balcony under the late night sun. Getting a Kobo really kick started it – it’s so convenient to carry around and the screen is really easy to read. E-Ink is great!
When the Kindle first came out, I thought it was a stupid idea. I liked (and still do) the physical act of reading a paper book. The smell, the texture of the pages… it’s more than just the act of reading itself. I thought the Kindle cheated a person from that part of the experience, and so it would be harder to become engrossed in the book. Well, I take it back. I’ll never give up paper books, but my Kobo is also here to stay. And I’m willing to recommend it to anyone who seems interested.
(Don’t worry – I am still knitting. Just less, since it’s gotten warm out.)
