When it comes to books, I’ve been a bit of a conservative snob. I like to hold them, turn page corners, carry them with me everywhere I go. I even like the smell. You can find me at least once a week walking into a bookstore, drooling over all the books I want to take home with me. As a kid, I mastered the art of riding my bicycle while reading something I probably was too young to understand anyway.
When it was time to start packing for my trip, I realised that bringing the seven books I wanted to read was not an option, unless I hired someone to follow me around, carrying all my things. Which was not accounted for in my budget.
Instead, I caved to technology. It was time to buy a Kindle.
That’s one of the best decisions I made last year (I’m a nerd, so yes, it qualifies). Reading is a huge passion of mine, and reading on a Kindle has added a valuable layer to it. Why, you might ask? Well, here’s why!
