Well…I did it. No…my husband did it.
He gave me a great shove into the technological world this week by buying me an iPhone (my friends will be happy) and a Nook.
If you’ve read my blog you know I’m technologically resistant. I claim to be a little technologically challenged too but that’s not entirely true. I’m actually pretty handy with computers. I just resist having everything in my life digitalized. Yet here I am…with everything I need in the palm of my hand.
I haven’t had my own cell phone in years…by choice. You may also know from previous posts how leery I am of eBooks – not that they aren’t a fabulous way of selling books – they are – it’s just that I worry about the printed book. So, for me, owning an eReader is a big deal. You can laugh, but so did those who thought vinyl records would never become obsolete. Change freaks me out, I guess.
Anyway…I am now connected and ready to join the legions of people who swear by their eLibraries. I will still buy printed books – especially those I fall in love with or the ones with pretty covers I can’t resist or the rare copy found in the antique book store. Odds are good I will own TWO copies of my favorite books…the eBook and the actual print. I can’t help it…I can’t turn my back on all those amazing homeless books out there.
What about you? Have an eReader? Love it? Hate it? Do you still buy print books?
And some music for your day 🙂
