Well hello and a wonderful Saturday morning!
Pushy here this week! And after a very nice holiday season where our household acquired a bunch of new electronic devices, all of which have had a good work out as my reader of the moment, I got to wondering:
As many of you know, I’m a TOTAL Audiobook fan! I’ve logged over 300 hours listening to books last year! I adore sinking into another world and loosing myself in a book no matter what I’m doing, whether it’s driving or doing the laundry or just tuning out the craziness that is my life. And now that I have my iPhone, and of course I’ve downloaded Audible’s
apps on it, I can listen to my audiobooks even more as I’m NEVER without my phone!!!
I bought my husband an iPad for Christmas and, while we don’t read ANY of the same books (he’s all politics, biographies and non-fiction, economics-wonkie stuff), I do have to admit that I’m so VERY jealous of his wonderful backlit reading device when we’re reading in bed at night. I know there are backlit eReaders out there as well, but the iPad is REALLY nifty plus you can update Goodreads on the same device, something eReaders aren’t currently offering. I’m DEFINITELY looking forward to getting one for myself !!!
*cough*Valentine’s Day gift*cough*
But just because I covet my husband’s iPad doesn’t mean I don’t still love my Kindle! My first eReader, my first eLove (for goodness sake, I named it The Big Precious), I find that even with the Kindle app on my phone and my laptop, I still like having my Kindle around for reading on the couch or in bed. I love that I can sync it to the other devices that I read my eBooks on but I don’t see a day yet where I’ll stop using my Kindle.
I have to admit that the format I find hardest to use these days is an actual book. I’m always multi-tasking and rarely have a few moments to just sit and enjoy a book. I do enjoy reading physical copies, though, and of course I have a library in my house dedicated to the many books I’ve lovingly (obsessively) acquired over the years but, physical books are somewhat farther down on my list of formats these days. *cringe*
So, now I want to hear it from you guys!
Are you a physical book lover or are you all electronic? Print or audio? Both?
Let me know!
Now go and get lost…in a book…in which ever format you choose!
Lover of words and authors; absolute fan girl of books! Give me a good story, with characters I can love (and hate) and I'll follow you anywhere. Sing me a song of worlds I can dream of, and I'll listen forever.
