So i am weird, and i accepted the fact whole heartedly a long time back. There could be numerous examples to showcase by talent in the mentioned area, but one that is relevant is how while other girls supposedly get aroused by the erotic deodorants i meanwhile find the smell of a book to be quite captivating. I often have a book near to my bed, as i find sleeping with one , comforting. These precisely have been the reasons that i avoided shifting to Kindle. How could an electronic device provide me with the enchanting aroma found within the pages of the books, the melody of flipping pages, and the comfort of simply holding them near.
So for the longest time, i kept exploring the kindles on every visit i made to crosswords but remain undecided about owning one, till a colleague who i could easily put in the category of Bibliophile , recommended it. And finally the device found its way into my life. There are some very practical pros that i discovered about having a kindle , like :
1. I no longer had to worry about number of books i could carry when i was travelling. It saved me space and also gave an option to buy a book of my choice even while i am on the go.
2. The limited book storage of my small apartment , was indeed happy i wasn’t now overstuffing it.
3. The kindle versions for a lot of books is way cheaper than the paperback versions.
4. Amazon has a monthly subscription plan which provides an easy access to hoards of titles.
5. I have the paperwhite version which costs around 10.5 k but is quite lightweight and easy to carry. Also the battery goes on for days together.
6. With the inbuilt light , it is supposed to help you read even in darkness, however i haven’t yet tried doing it.
While there are several pros , Kindle for me still could not substitute the joy of holding the paperback and immersing into it. I still continue to order the hard copy versions for majority of the books. But for those who frequently travel , kindle definitely provides an easier option to carry your favorites with you.
