My sweetheart and I walked to our little coffee shop/book store this morning so that I could get a really wonderful frozen coffee with an extra shot of espresso (she said it’s to “help me write” today! She’s such a keeper. ♥). Well, much to my surprise, when we wandered over to the book store section, the older gentleman who owns the book store was reading…on his Kindle! I had to chuckle at that–here he is, the proud owner of a book store (and I’ve had that dream for years, so I understand it!), and he himself is reading a book on his Kindle and not reading an “actual” book.
It led to a really good conversation with my sweetie on the way back home…we know that more and more people are reading on eReaders, obviously, but we wondered…what amount of people would choose an eReader OVER an actual book?
I grew up loving the scent of paper and holding a book in my hands, but even I have to admit…I pick up my Kindle more often than the stack of paperbacks on my bedside table. What about you? When you have a choice between a stack of paperbacks or your Kindle, which do you choose?
