Watercooler Wednesday (The Kindle)
Hey everybody it’s Watercooler Wednesday! Check out Randy Elrod’s Ethos blog for all kinds of cool,creative conversation.
Today I submit to you: The Kindle. My husband gave me an amazing product for Christmas. It’s an e-book where I can download most of the bestsellers in under a minute. I can also have a variety of daily newspapers waiting for me when I wake up in the morning.
Today’s question is this: What is your opinion on e-books? Would you or do you miss the deliciousness of holding a book in your hands? The smell of the pages, the slick feeling of the cover, the raised letters in the titles, the broke in feeling of a well loved book? Or has a fire been started inside you and you’re ready to move on to lighted, light speed digital stories?
It’s mixed for me. I am allergic to news print, so we haven’t taken a paper in decades. I love the wireless ease of downloading a new book, but I miss the beautiful comfort of having all my old friends around me.
