Books over E-Readers.. Personal Preference.

I had a recent conversation with a friend about what type of e-reader he should buy, and being that I despise e-readers I told him to find another opinion to solicit, being that I prefer the old school method of reading. Pick up a book, open the cover and start reading.. He then began a tirade over why e-readers will always have an advantage over books and called me an old fashioned dinosaur. “I can fit thousands of books on my reader and I won’t be killing trees!” Blah, Blah, Blah. I say Bullshit- not EVERYTHING needs to be on a computer, and there ARE some advantages to reading an actual book over reading one on a tab computer. For instance, I can read any book in my library in direct sunlight with absolutely no problems with screen glare and I don’t have to worry about my books crashing, getting hacked or failing because of low or dead batteries. I could probably come up with a few more, but I will stop there.. Sometimes technology just gets in my way.. Ridiculous.


  1. all this gadgetry is crazy! you'd think these I phones were made out of gold or something. I'm way too old fashioned and cheap! I would rather be called dinosaur or old fashioned. I don't even own a much for my technology.

  2. G'day Scratchy! Just popped in to wish you a very happy 2012. I like books that have paper and ink too. Cheers!

  3. Like Bella, i don't have a cell, and you know how many books I can buy for he cost of a reader. Then i find out you have to pay for anything you read. The library still looks good to me...
