Between the Pages (Pixels)

I have to say, getting a Kindle was one of the better decisions I have made in a while. Since receiving this great Birthday gift, I have read almost ten books, some more than a thousand pages in length. Living in rural Newfoundland, we do not have access to a decent book store, unless you consider Walmart a decent book store. I for one, do not.

The Kindle has opened my eyes to as many books as I can imagine, and I plan on taking full advantage of the new opportunities this little device can provide. I recently downloaded the entire Repairman Jack series of books, and I find myself lost between the pages (pixels) of this unlikely hero and his adventures. I have also re-read A Thousand Splendid Suns, a book that I found absolutely amazing to read the first time, albeit on a torn copy of the book I picked up at a garage sale.

I am already planning on reading Stephen King’s newest, 11-22-63, which tells the story of a man who goes back in time in an attempt to prevent the assassination of John F Kennedy. Should be an interesting read. I have that one downloaded, just waiting to be read.

The Kindle allows me to carry my entire library with me where ever I go, and with all those old hardcover books gone from the shelves, I have even more space to store my goodies. The Kindle is a win win for me. I have also recommended the device to my friends, and some of them are purchasing ereaders for Christmas gifts.

 

One thought on “Between the Pages (Pixels)

  1. My eReader is an iPad, but I feel the same way! Instead of the book-or-three perpetually stuffed in my purse (and the just-in-case extras stashed in the car, overcoat pockets, and anywhere I might find myself–gasp–without reading material) I just have the iPad permanently within arm’s reach, with the WHOLE library, yay! 😉
