Why Read an eBook?
I still buy real books. I do. I admit it. However, I do mostly buy eBooks now. I have a Kindle…but honestly, I read mostly on my phone. There are so many reasons I’ve made the switch.
For one, my bookcases are full to overflowing. As I sit here in this room typing, there are four large bookcases stuffed with books. That is just in this room. There are bookcases in the other bedroom, the living room AND the dining room. There are books in plastic storage containers under my bed and in my closet. There are crates full of books all over my home. I have … a lot of books. I just don’t physically have the room for more.
However, there are other good reasons too. I have a number of cookbooks in electronic format. It is great to look up ingredients I need while I’m at the store. If I’m stuck in line at the post office, I just whip out the phone and do some reading. I have reference materials at my fingertips. Lastly, the selection online is much better. When I moved to this town, there were two real book stores. There was a Waldenbooks in the mall and a stand-alone Borders. Both are now gone. The only places to buy books are Walmart, Target and the grocery store. No offense, but the selection is quite limited.
Did I switch to eBooks to save trees? Not specifically. I do other things … cutting down on packaging, recycling (even though it isn’t required where I live), buying in bulk, bringing my own bags etc. However, I’m a happy ebook convert. If trees get saved, that’s a nice bonus.
