" But there's something pleasant and calming about a crisp, fresh new book that smells just...delicious and yummy. "
Oh, I know. Believe me, I know.
I have thousands of books, all delicious and yummy when I first bought them.
The thing that convinced me to try a Kindle was a CNN blurb by a reporter who was given a Kindle by her sister. The sister is a book publisher, and has been in the business for 40 years. The sister said "Believe me, I'm a Book Person. After forty years in the book publishing business, I really really am a Book Person. And I love the Kindle." .
Now, it's such a good feeling to know that I can buy a book, read it, enjoy it and NOT HAVE TO FIND A PLACE TO PUT IT LATER.
A huge drawback to the Kindle is that you can't loan a book to a friend later, nor give it to the library fund raiser. On the other hand, they allow you to download a sample of the book (usually the first chapter) at no charge, so you can start reading it and decide if you want to continue.
