BlogPageWelcome to my blog -- Grace's Rantings

I have made a study of human communication -- interpersonal as well as mass media.  I am intrigued by tremendous changes in human interaction in recent years.  The computer, Internet, smart phones and social media have dramatically changed the way we interact with each other.  Human discourse hasn't changed, but the mediums by which we communicate have..."and that has made all the difference".

E-Reader vs. Book?

I saw this cartoon on Facebook and thought it was very funny.  Old school triumphing over new school!   But I must admit that I am one of those people who love reading on my kindle.  I wouldn't part with it.  I am also one of those people who try to convince everyone of the convenience and ease of reading on a kindle.

However, I wasn't always a e-book reader.  As a matter of fact, I started out as one of those people who kept saying, "I love books; I love touching them, smelling them.  I love seeing the book spines lined on on the book shelf."

But after moving boxes and boxes of these lovely books around with me over the years, and ending up with much less space to display them, I am down to a small bookcase of only the books I truly love (mostly fantasy series), and a box of children's books in my basement that I couldn't part with.  However I now have many, many books stored on my kindle.  And with the kindle app on my phone, I always have access to my books.  When I find myself with some time to spare, I don't have to say, "Oh I wish I had my book".  It is always handy!

What is your preference e-reader or paper book?  And if you say book, have you ever tried reading on a kindle (or Nook or I-pad, etc?)
