I took the Kindle plunge a few months ago and have never looked back. I love how lightweight and portable my Kindle Paperwhite
is because it makes it so easy to carry with me to read during those odd bursts of time such as when I’m waiting in the carpool line or at appointments. I love to download free samples of books I *think* I want to read so I can preview the first few pages before actually buying the whole book.
I don’t miss turning the pages of a “real” paper book nearly as much as I thought that I would. And being able to read in the dark (the Kindle Paperwhite is backlit) is awesome! I can read in bed without bothering my sleeping husband with the lights.
Anyways, now that it is possible to buy a Kindle for as low as $69, shipped free., I definitely think it is worth the investment if you love to read.
I’m currently reading A Discovery of Witchesby Deborah Harkness. It’s the first book in the All Souls Trilogy. Her novel Shadow of Night recently won the 2012 GoodReads Choice Award for Best Paranormal Fantasy. The story involves paranormal creatures as well as action, mystery, history and science. It’s a great mix that has kept me up late at night reading this week!
What about you? Let me know what you are reading these days in the comments section. I love hearing recommendations and even those “do not waste your time reading” kinds of non-recommendations.
