Happy Read an E-book Day!

IMG_2293Unlike many of my fellow booksellers, I have no problem with e-books. People assume that I will get offended if they say they bought an e-book, often cringing in shame before admitting it. As someone who cares more about if you can read than how you do it, I am happy to inform people that I have owned an e-reader for over 4 years and read most of my books that way.

I have limited space for books at home, and having an e-reader has seriously assisted in keeping my physical book collection to a reasonable level. My rule is that if I really and truly love the book after reading it then I will add a physical copy to my library. The only time I break this rule is for used books or things that I can’t find any other way.

Today I’m reading Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve on my Kobo. Do you use an e-reader? What e-book are you reading today?

  1. I completely agree with you. I have a Kindle Paperwhite, e-books have been really useful for me, since I don’t have much space here at home to store my books. I do buy physical copies once in a while. At this very moment I am reading Wild Seed by Octavia E. Butler

  2. I had a Nook Color and then got a Nook Glowworm. I love e-readers! I often finish one book and can immediately start another. When I’m move, there aren’t piles of heavy boxes. The dust factor of physical books is a problem for me. Also, when an author or publisher send me a book, I don’t have to figure out what to do with the book when I’m done reading it.


  3. I’m an “Any way I can read, I will read.” Often times I have a book going on my computer (cloud reader) and on the kindle app on my phone so I can keep reading the same book wherever I’m at. Don’t have a proper ‘e-reader’ anymore, though.
