My 1st time... reading an ebook. What were you thinking, perv!
Sooo I started reading my 1st ebook the other night. I had pretty bad insomnia and didn't feel like turning on the light and reading The Prestige, so I remembered I had downloaded The Man in the Iron Mask from the Freebooks app on my iphone.
So I was bit excited to start reading Twenty Years After, even though it was an ebook and on my phone. I can honestly say, it wasn't that bad. I understand the convenience & ease of the ereader, and I will def invest in an ipad one day. As most of you all know I have mocked ereaders, quite brilliantly really, from day 1 and I stand by the mocking, but I concede that I really don't mind reading on them. Having said that, they are still a very poor substitution for the real thing. I'm a die hard bookie and nothing can replace the feel and smell and enjoyment of buying and reading a real live book. N-O-T-H-I-N-G. But this sexxy reader can admit when he is wrong about something, this isn't one of those times, as I am never wrong, but one day when I am, I'll admit it. I will continue to mock ereaders, mainly b/c it's fun and makes me happy, but I will def be reading books on an ereader, eventually, one day, maybe... Stay REAL Booked! Happy Reading Real Books! :)
