Random Thoughts – on ebooks

Have you ever bought a book on Kindle,

that you already owned in paper form,

because you were too lazy to get up and get it…

or turn the pages…

or deal with a book light?


Don’t judge me.

    Ha ha! Love it. I broke down and bought paper copy of To Kill A Mockingbird because it isn’t available on ebook and my copy is falling apart. I would have bought ebook if I could have. By the way more Agatha Christie on sale today.

    • I love my paper books, and thought I’d never go digital. Until I got a smart phone and realized how awesome it is to have so many books at my fingertips wherever I am. And you are tempting me to go spend more money! You got me hooked back on Audible again, and I really should cut that expense, but I like it too much. 🙂

  2. Well, no. I do have ebooks but only for book emergencies. I still like real books better and go to the building where they keep books…it’s called a library. 🙂

    • Haha, I love that – book emergencies. But it’s true, isn’t it? There are such things as book emergencies. And I remember the library, I always loved the library, but sadly I haven’t been to one in years. 😦

      • You need to visit the library…they have computers now and no card catalog cases.

    I’ve gone all digital except for kids’ books. Still something about letting them turn the pages.

    • I get all my new books digitally too, but I do like paper books still. Digital is just way convenient. But children’s books need to be paper for the big, wonderful pictures too!!

  4. Yep. I’ve bought digital copies of books I own for trips. The Kindle is much handier for traveling on long trips. (And I love the Paperwhite, which has the built in backlight, for reading at night without having to turn on the lamp.)

    • I do all my Kindle reading on my phone, and the backlight is a way big benefit. I was just finishing up an Agatha Christie last night, and I think the big thing about digital over paper is the convenience. I have all the books at my fingertips, and also I can lay there and read with one hand, even turning pages.

      • I know! I love my Kindle, but I also still love getting books at the library. Browsing at the Kindle Store is just not the same thing.

        • Yes! That is true! It’s not satisfying at all.

  5. It’s like you just pulled back the curtain of my soul and reviled my inner sloth. Well done.
