Electronic Reading…Why?

Do you have a Kindle? A Nook? When I hear someone talk about either of these gadgets, the first question that comes to my mind is, “Why?”

As someone who loves to read, I prefer an actual book in my hands to an electronic device. Any particular reason I feel this way? Just personal preference, I guess. To me, there’s nothing quite as relaxing as curling up with a good book after a busy, crazy day. While I’m at it, I might as well put it out there that I also prefer used bookstores and libraries to Books-A-Million or Barnes & Noble. Fancy coffee and the hottest new paperbacks can’t hold a candle to the smell and feel of old, well-loved books.

Who knows, one day I just might jump on the electronic reading bandwagon. But as someone with zero interest in these gadgets, I seriously doubt it. I’ll take ink and paper over yet another glowing screen any day of the week!
