The Happiness of Reading on Kindle
100 Days of Happiness – Day 13
I recently mentioned that I once had an aversion to reading books on e-Readers, but had recently taken to reading more voraciously on my friend’s Nook and Kindle Fire. It’s not a bad experience at all, I feel. And on the Nook, at least, it almost felt like I was reading on paper itself. Would that make me shift completely to reading e-books and leave paperbacks? Not at all. I knew that. I still prefer reading on paper. The feel of paper is something completely different of course.
I had a conversation with my friend on Friday evening. He already was into reading on a Kindle Paperwhite, and I asked him about the pros and cons and such. I very rarely invest heavily on anything, so wanted to get an idea before I took the jump. I guess it was a choice that I had already made even before asking, so what he told me only confirmed what I had known would be. And I placed an order for the Paperwhite immediately.
Happiness is reading on my very own Kindle Paperwhite, and enjoying the experience. Here’s to knowing that the investment was/is a worthwhile one!
