Hello my Freaky Darlings,
I’m officially addicted to ebooks!
Here are a few of the reasons why I love them:
I never have to leave the comfort of my own home.
The download is quick and easy. Within a matter of seconds I have the book my heart desires.
I don’t have to spend extra cash on petrol to get to a shopping centre or deal with hordes of other shoppers.
There’s very little chance of the book not being in stock and there’s no judgemental, snotty book store clerks looking at me funny because I bought something that’s not exactly mainstream or literary.
There’s no storage space issue, no worrying about if I have space in the bookcase or if I have to buy another one. All ebooks are stored nice and safely on my laptop or ebook reader (I have a bebook).
And lets not even go into the nightmare that is moving home and carting all my books to the new place. No such issue with ebooks.
Then there’s the ecological issue. No trees are cut down to feed my addiction, so I can sleep peacefully at night.
Ebooks are incredibly convenient!
I know there are some who want to cling to tree books and say that there’s nothing quite like the smell of a book etc, but you may as well be sniffing dust, it’s the same smell people. Remember when some said that LP’s sounded better than CD’s? We all know how that turned out, don’t we? And now we have the iPod.
Ebooks are the future and the future is here.
Let me know what you think about ebooks?
