There are times when we all want to throw our computers, tablets and cell phones on the floor and crush them beneath our angry feet. But, when you contemplate current technology, it really is amazing. I never thought that I would own a Kindle, but now I'm a believer.
I'm a reader and always have been. It would seem unnatural, if I didn't have a pile of books and magazines by my bed. We have bookcases in every room except the bathroom. The laundry room has turned into a library. So, the thought of going paperless really didn't appeal to me. But, my son bought me a Kindle as a gift. I tried it and now I love it. I love the ease of getting a new book that is being highly recommended by someone. Sometimes, it's too easy. I just press a few buttons on my Kindle, Amazon opens my account and I have it within seconds.
But, you don't have to spend a lot of money on e-books. You can get many through your public library. There are the old classics that are now in the public domain and free to consume. Project Gutenberg is a good source. ManyBooks is another.
I still love my old school paper books, but I would be hard pressed, if anyone took away my Kindle.
