Kindle me softly!

I see them everywhere. On the subway, at work, on trains and in cafe’s. They sit there, doing one of the things I love the most doing. They’re reading. But what is this?? No book?? It’s some kind of tablet. It’s all so confusing. Well, not really 😛 I really do see the practicality of it. It’s smaller than a book and it’s easier to handle on a crowded subway with only one hand free while the other one’s struggling to keep you from falling. It weighs less and doesn’t change no matter how short or long a novel you’re reading.

In spite of all of this positive and practical reasons I just can’t see myself ever getting one. I love technology so I should probably be embracing this but no. I love the feeling of holding a book, flipping the pages and even the weight of it in my purse. I feel somehow lost if I leave home without a book. I’ve tried reading e-books and listening to audio books but it’s just not for me. I need to have those letters on papers. I need to feel the book in my hand. I love how technology makes a lot of things simpler, more handy and even better, but for me there’s nothing technology has come up with that has made books better. To me, reading a book is so special. To be able to escape to different worlds through the pages is pure perfection.

Sorry technology, you lost this round. I’m sure I’ll see a lot more of you though. A lot more…
