I have been on the fence about purchasing an electronic reader. I love to read, although lately I haven't had much time to do so. I mentioned to Lou and the girls I was thinking about getting one, but really wasn't sure I would be willing to give up the feel of book in hand. Several weeks ago, the decision was taken out of my hands. For my birthday the husband and daughters gave me a Kindle.
I love being able to choose books while sitting at home. It's comfortable to hold and I don't miss the feel or smell of the paper. I was glad to be able to read and to connect to the internet while at the H&G show the past two weekends, but I transported it wrapped in a tea towel so it wouldn't get scratched while in my purse.
