As the years go on, technology is forever evolving and becomes an integrative part of our lives. Do we get on the wagon or do we stay off and get left behind? So we all know in most cases we have to get on that wagon, right…
But if there is one thing that I cannot evolve with for some reason, is the Kindle. When it comes to books, I am old school. I prefer the actual physical book to a kindle. I love the feel and smell of a book. It is like a love affair to me. I mean it is great that the inventor, founder and CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, tried to keep the look of an actual book on the kindle but yet, it is not the same… I know the kindle has its many great benefits such as flexibility, portability, accessibility, space savings, free samples and maybe one of the greatest feature is note retrieval – Amazon saves all your highlights and notes as you read a book along with their locations for you at a special password protected website. Once you finish reading the book, you can go to the website and easily access you’re your underlines and notes for that book and in order.
But my heart and soul craves to hold and read a physical book. Lock me up in a library or even a bookstore and I will be content.
And with all this said, will I go out of the way to buy a Kindle? Maybe not but if given a kindle as a gift, I will gladly accept it though 🙂
