REAL OLD FASHIONED BOOKS vs EBOOKS

  A few weeks ago In an interview I said I had no warm fuzzy feelings about Ebooks.
I like a good old fashioned book, the look, the feel and the smell of them. My Mom and Dad started buying me books before I was born, I teethed on them, they were my comfort item, along with my blanket. I traditionally have a book in my possession at all times.

A couple of weeks ago I took the plunge and bought an Amazon Kindle and amazingly I have developed warm fuzzy feelings for it.
I still have a large amount of old fashioned books in my too be read pile, so I will be alternating between them and Kindle.
I also already have a large too be read "Pile" on Kindle. It is too easy to go to the Kindle store, pick out a book and push the button. It is instant gratification, the book is there in seconds, no waiting no postage, no driving long distances to Deseret Book or Seagull Book.
I have a 2 page wish list, destined to get longer as I discover more books I want to read.
Now I just have to figure out how to get my Kindle books signed when I go to a books signing.

Your to-read list looks like mine! I also have some "waiting" for me on my iPad. LOL!
