E-Book Week

I know I have already spent one of my blogs here talking about E-Books, but seeing as how this is E-Book week, I figured I would write another blog on them in honor of the week.

As electronic books are slowly gaining popularity, I have begun to read the electronic books myself. In fact, I just recently read two of the best books, and they were both published in the E-Book format.

A definite pro of E-Books I have noticed is the ease at which they can be read. You simply bring up the story on your computer, and there it is, ready for you to read. Nice and simple. Not to mention that it is easy to scroll through the pages as well. That’s always a nice plus.

So I know I hope to be celebrating E-Book week this week by relaxing and sitting down to read a E-Book!

Maybe someday we can go in together on a Kindle. You may eventually get tired of reading on the computer. Did you once read a book on the Rocket eBook reader? Although it's fat and heavy, it was a great little device in its day, with a screen size similar to that of the Kindles and Sonys. (Or is that Sonies?)

On another note, I am very surprised at the number of ebook authors who either don't read them or are just now trying them. I still think they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. Okay, cliche, I know.

I like that you can read one with one hand and eat that perfectly sliced bread with the other!

Yes, bread with peanut butter.

And should you mishappenly sort of get a smear of peanut butter on the reader, it does wipe off. Not so on page 54 of the paperback version of The Da Vinci Code.

And...you can make the print as big as you want (need!)

(not that I'd know anything about that)

And the pages don't tear. Also, a cat can't hole punch a digital cover. Not so for the majority of the Black family library...
