Here we go....
A while back, I tried the Kindle. Blagh. Hated it. I wanted so badly to like it. So badly. But I didn't.
I love the feel of the book in my hands. I love to gaze longingly at the pretty cover. I love to see how much of the book I've read, and how much more I have to go.
Let's face it: I LOVE MY BOOKS!
But guess what? I got an iPad for Christmas. It was love at first sight. There isn't much this little fella can't do. I learn more and more about it every day.
I downloaded the Kindle App, ya know.... just for fun. I already knew I didn't like the Kindle. So, why bother? I guess 'cause the App was free, and there are some pretty good e-books out there for free. I figured, "why not?"
OMG!!! I LOVE MY KINDLE APP ON MY IPAD!
I know, right? Who'da thunk it?
It is addictive. I could shop in the Kindle store for hours and hours.
I love that this thing-a-majig fits in my purse, and I am literally carrying dozens and dozens of books! (Can't wait to travel with it, but since we never go anywhere, it'll be awhile....) Along with hundreds of other Apps that I am loving to pieces.
That's what I find the most appealing with the iPad.... it is definitely a multi-tasker, where I think the Kindle is really more for just reading. It is truly phenomenal.
Maybe I didn't give that Kindle enough of a chance? I don't know. I thought I would miss holding that lovely book with all of it's papery goodness in my hands.
