After literally half a year of debating with myself, I finally bought a Kindle Paperwhite! I’ve put it off for so long that I had to take a friend with me to my local Officeworks so I wouldn’t back out. If I had gone on my own, I would’ve found reasons not to buy it. Having a friend with me meant that I felt obliged to buy it so that I wasn’t wasting her time by dragging her around with me. 😛
It’s my first ever e-reader and I’m pretty darn excited about it. I was actually about to get the Voyage (the new Oasis wasn’t even an option) but I figured there wasn’t much of a difference between it and the Paperwhite to justify the extra cost, plus I’m definitely still going to use physical books more often. It’s just nice to know I can keep hundreds of books in a small device for when I travel. I also want to get more into netgalley and my experience with reading e-books on my phone wasn’t that great.
On the Kindle, I’m currently reading The Girl in the Box series by Robert J. Crane which is a free set. Still need to recover from the purchase. Heh.
Do you own an e-reader? Do you prefer physical copies or e-books?
