The Kindle Vs Books (38 Weeks)

This has always been a touchy subject with me. When the Kindle first hit the stores I was outraged that an electronic device had the nerve to even try to compete against the great love affair that I have going with books. I didn’t understand why anyone would want to read off a screen rather than a page. It baffled me and still does in small doses to this day. I could never cross over to the dark side, not even if you paid me.

However, I do see the benefits of owning a Kindle, at a touch of a button you have an entire library at your fingertips. Trees will be safer and won’t be sacrificed for best-selling novels. You don’t have to worry about carrying around a ton of books if you go on holiday or fancy something new to read on your way to work. It just doesn’t appeal to me personally and I don’t judge anyone who owns one.

I am just a natural-born book lover; I love the feel of a book in my hands, the smell of the pages new or old. I enjoy the whole experience from the moment I turn that first page to the satisfaction I get when I finally finish and close the last chapter. I also like having them displayed on my bookshelf, they are like photos, reminding me of the stories and characters I have enjoyed over the years.

My only worry with the Kindle is that library’s will slowly disappear. I really do hope and pray that that is never the case. A whole building dedicated to authors and their works, years and years of stories, facts, information. A place where you can go and escape for a few hours and it’s free. For poor people like me libraries are a godsend! I read loads and don’t have the money to keep up my habit. I would if I could but for the best part of my years, libraries have been my saviour and my good friend.

I hope books stay for years to come and don’t die out. I know in an ever-changing world we are always looking for new ways to improve what we already have but please, please leave books alone. They are perfect the way they are.

I am off to watch some movies and play some games with the husband. We are both a bit under the weather so it is soup for dinner and lots and lots of rest. Being pregnant and felling even more rubbish is not fun.
