E-reader vs Library
It was about a year ago that I made the decision to buy myself an e-reader. It was a difficult decision to make because I do love to read books. I love the feel of a book. Being able to curl the left side of a paperback and turning pages of a good “page turner”. A good friend had an e-reader, (Kindle), and she said as much as she also loved books she loved her e-reader more. So, after longingly looking at the Kindle on Amazon, I just bit the bullet and bought one.
Today, I went to the library to pick up some books for my mom to read while she recuperates from her back surgery. I realized that I miss going to the library. I miss the atmosphere that the library has. I also realized, the library missed me. I had a nice conversation with the librarian about why she hadn’t seen me in so long. As much as I do love my Kindle, I may just have to continue getting my mother books to read, even after she has gotten better.
