|A wonderful place to read a book|
I have been wanting one for ages and now it is beside me, loaded with a couple of books that I want to read and primed to go.
I feel a sense of trepidation of the technology - it took me a moment to learn how to turn the page; but it isn't turning a page. All of the joy of feeling the weight of a new or indeed old book in your hands is missing. I cannot judge whether the book is going to take me long to read. I cannot smell the enticing smell of a new book.
There is no chance of a scribble in the margin or a flower pressed between the pages with this machine ....
but there is the comfort of a light, easy to read vehicle for the printed word; a library full of promise and only a few clicks away.
I am in two minds.
