After Much Consideration... [Aug. 30th, 2017|01:45 pm]
Tony Grist
I've come to the conclusion that I prefer my literature on paper. I was on Amazon, looking at the latest collection of Kryon channelings by Lee Carroll and wondering whether to download it to my kindle- which would be quicker and cheaper- but settled on the hard copy because this is a book I may want to refer back to and re-read sections of- and I find that so much easier to do when I have tangible pages to riffle through.

Absolutely agreed. I inherited my Dad's Kindle when he passed away a couple years ago, and have discovered that I have absolutely no desire to use it, at all ...

I don't suppose I'll entirely abandon my kindle. Some books- especially old ones- can be hard and/or very expensive to get hold of in hard copies. I don't suppose I would have read so much of Balzac (for example) if I hadn't been able to download the books.

For me it depends on the book these days. If it's light reading or something I don't think I'll ever refer back to or what I want is travel reading, then my kindle is fine. But some books are meant to be savoured and held and consulted...then only paper will do.

Kindle certainly has its uses. I've read a lot of books I wouldn't otherwise have had access to if they hadn't been available in digital form.
