I just got a Kindle and I’m not sold on it.
Am I too old? Maybe that’s the problem. But I don’t think so. I love technology.
The other day a friend was selling their Kindle (an older version) very inexpensively. Since I’d been trying to decide between the Kindle and the Nook I figured, “Why not? It’s cheap and I can see if an e-reader is going to work for me.”
Yes, it will work. If I’m flying and don’t want to haul any books with me I get the appeal. Anywhere else, forget it. It’s too much work.
Maybe it’s because I’m a visual person. I like to see all my books on my shelf at a glance. I like to be able mark a book up without having to take five minutes to highlight a section. I like to be able to find my books fast and when they’re all sitting in front of me I can do that.
My friend Randy now reads exclusively on his Kindle. Don’t get it.
Do you? Help me and explain what’s wrong with my brain. (For the Kindle! Not the other stuff!)
