I liked most of them - except the one about Kindles not having this kind of magic. I BLESS the day a friend showed me her Kindle and let me play with it.
I have very poor eyesight and it's gotten worse with age to the point where I can't read a standard hardback, let alone paperback. I need large-print books - but they don't MAKE them for half the books I want to read. Plus to have a library of large-print books you need much more room than you do for a library of paperbacks. Not to mention that large-print books are so heavy your arms get tired long before you've read enough to satisfy the urge to read. Yes, I can use a magnifier and it DOES help but it is so cumbersome I give up in frustration before I've read more than a few pages.
With my Kindle, it weighs less than a standard paperback. I've got a cover for it, which opens like a book which means that it is aesthetically pleasing to read. And I can enlarge the font as much as needed - and the font still has several settings to go which means that I can still read my Kindle even if my eyes continue to get progressively worse (although at the moment it's stable, thankfully). So for me, my Kindle (or a similar eReader if Kindles get phased out which I can't see happening any time soon) lets me experience the magic and pleasure of reading for years longer than books have.
books. reading. and libraries. saved my sanity when i was child.
sometimes they still do.
nooks are cool
7,8 & 14... I can get so wrapped up in a book I think about the characters constantly and miss them when I'm in real life! I am particularly proud of the fact that my son (16) cleaned out a storeage closet and made a library in his bedroom closet with books from all different genres...his gf alphabetized and made a check out list for their friends.
Nice to see so many bookworms like me! I enjoy series book but when I'm done I go " Awww." LOL
