To Get A Kindle Or Not?

Now I have been a bookworm since I was a child. I was captivated by Enid Blyton’s Famous Five and I enjoyed discovering the works of William Shakespeare at school.

I have been looking at getting a Kindle for a while now but I would hate to see paperbacks disappear altogether. I think the thought of losing paperbacks has prevented me from joining the digital revolution.
Since getting an iPhone I have started to embrace reading electronic books. Seeing how cheap and easy it is to download and read e-books has made me think twice.

I know that whatever happens I will still purchase paperbacks but I will be very surprised if I don’t have a Kindle by my birthday in February.

At the moment I am currently reading a very weird book called Wickedness (a paperback) it is a little disturbing but compelling all the same.
Soon I shall start the second in the WitchBlood series WitchCraft an e-book.

Do let me know your thoughts on paperbacks and e-readers?
I am interested to see if any of you have any advice for me.

Here are just a few of the books I have in my room. If I get a Kindle it would definitely help me out space wise.

    I have always had a large collection of books and recently donated about 90% of them to my local library. I’ve read a few e-books and they’ve been convenient but there’s nothing like the smell and feel of a book. I have decided though that shall I feel the need to purchase a book for leisure in the future, it will be an e-book so that I can be environmentally friendly. In the meantime, I will keep checking them out at the library.

    Welcome to WWWW, Hayley. I read on an iPad, only when I’m not reading ink on paper. Both are great, but as a dedicated library person, I still like the community of books and people in the brick and mortar building. I do have more space on my shelves, that’s a plus but I’m not buying more books (except at our library booksale), even e-ones I borrow those on OverDrive. So, is there a Kindle in your future? Toni

      Thanks for the comment Toni. I really do think a Kindle will be purchased within the month.
