a kindle spirit….

I received a kindle for Christmas and I absolutely love it!  I didn’t think I would because I do love a new book; I love the smell, the feel and satisfaction of holding a brand new unread book in my hands, ready to devour, page by page.  I love having a shelf of books and the general romance of books; so as you can imagine, I was a little anti it at first, UNTIL I got one and now I really would be lost without it.

It’s actually a real luxury not having to turn the page, especially if you like to have a read whilst eating your lunch! I have a lovely little cover for mine so I feel like I am reading a proper book anyway, as it kind of feels the same when you are holding it. You can even connect to the Internet on it, easily, if you buy the 3g one. I totally recommend it, you can keep the books forever with no clutter.  It’s the perfect companion.

    I saw a lot of these in NYC along with iPads but I am not too keen on them. Like you, I love the feel, touch and smell of a brand new book as well as the bright cover. With Kindles all I see is grey and more grey. The only time I would get one is if I was backpacking round the world for a year with no fix abode.
