The book group to which I belong has gone into the 21st century with almost everyone in it now reading the books on Kindle. I am one of the remaining traditionalists, this is not due to technophobia but my love of a real book.
No lovely front cover or synopsis.
Hard to find the part of the book you want to re-read
Reading by the pool or beach or in the bath are virtually impossible
No charity shopping for second hand books
Bit boring and ugly – why don´t they make them in nice colours? Or maybe they do.
However there are some advantages
It meant I didn´t have to buy the book for the book club – I just borrowed a kindle.
Cheaper to buy new books on kindle
More space in the house – I have boxes full of books that don´t fit on my shelves.
I would not have to use most of my baggage allowance on books when I was on holiday.
Overall, I remain to be convinced but if anyone wants to buy me one that would be nice.
