I am torn
I love the feel of a book, dog earring the corners, making notations in the margins. I have gotten lost on the Ol Muddy with Tom and Huck. Went on many adventures with Bilbo and the Hobbits and many others over the years.
I have usually bought them in paper back form and after so many readings they tend to fall apart.
Lately my readings have been more historical readings (US Civil War and The foundings of the frontier area west of the appalachians)
The problem with these books have been the size, weight and the damned footnotes.
My hands have arthritis in them and after reading for x amount of time my hands hurt and I have to stop reading.
I tried my sisters nook (she has a nook her husband has the kindle) I liked the ease of use and being able to get books anywhere at anytime. and it didn't give my hands cramps or pains after several hours of reading.
I guess it may be time for ol Tom, Huck and Bilbo to move into the digital age......
but then what do I do with my 100's of books err better make that 1000s of books.
