I’ve been enjoying my new Kindle
that I thought I’d share some late summer/early autumn pictures with you
while I explain why I’m now in love with e-books
(I didn’t think this would ever happen to me).
The first reason why I’m head over heels
is because of the easy access to inspirational novels and educational books.
A lot of the books I plan to read are not available locally,
and since I’m
a struggling newbie writer polishing up my first novel
I appreciate how affordable e-books are to buy.
Within moments I can purchase and download a wonderful new read.
It’s especially nice to purchase an e-book that a blogger friend has written.
Indie authors get a decent percentage of the price of an e-book.
Believe me, writing a book is
a lot harder than I ever imagined it would be a lengthy labor of love.
The second reason why I love my Kindle
is because I can carry a whole bunch of books within a compact device.
This is handy when I’m doing the taxi-mama thing
since I can haul a library in my purse
and read to my heart’s content while waiting for one of my teens to finish a music lesson etc.
Right now I’m enjoying a novel and
two three how-to books on publishing/writing.
The Kindle keeps my place in each book without any help from me.
My arthritic wrists appreciate how easy it is to hold a Kindle (or prop it up).
No, I won’t be getting rid of my collection of antique books.
I love how warm and wonderful old books look on tables and shelves.
The third ( read forth—since I slipped in an extra one above) reason I adore my Kindle
is that I’ll be able to e-mail my novel draft to it
so that I can read it from a different perspective (crossing my fingers that I’ll figure this out),
which is critical to trick my eyes into finding more things that I need to self-edit.
My Kindle can’t do housework, rub my back, or pay me a compliment;
but I love it none-the-less ❤ .
Now it’s your turn to tell me what you love (or don’t) about Kindles or e-books.
PS – I keep mine in its own handbag (made by yours truly).
