There are many opinions about the digital reading devices that have become the big opportunity and headache for the publishing industry and customers alike. Judging by it's name, the Kindle intends to start a fire, but it's popularity seems to spread like wildfire. We can only hope that book burning won't be the result.
I was skeptical at first, not listening to voices explaining digital reading was the future; that it was environmentally friendly; that it felt just like a book once you got reading. But then I caved. This Christmas, the Kindle was my only major wish, and I got it. I have so far been very happy with it, and I see no reason that would change.
I do, however, see some reasons why the Kindle might change me as a reader and a book buyer. In this age of digital reading, you might be interested to know what these reasons are too, but I am not going to let you in on it here, of course. I am being tricky again, leading you to think you will get a full post here while it is actually located over at Burrowers, Books and Balderdash, where I am this week's Reading Monday host. Join me there, and don't forget to let me know how you feel about digital reading - will you stick to paper or has technology lured you into its seductive claws?
