being kinder

So I’ve always narrowed my eyes (and my heart wtf) towards the Kindle and said that Kindle users are all posers and showoffs… and second only to iPad users (sorry mum WTF)

And that having a Kindle sucks because it’s not like you can lend a book you’ve finished to your friend.  Takkan give your whole Kindle ah.  And knowledge is supposed to be shared!  Not kept in a small plastic piece for yourself.

And nothing beats holding the weight of a book in your hands and flipping through real pages!  Plus I like going back and forth and re-reading parts that were nice before I move on to the next chapter wan wtf.  And it’s hard to do that with a Kindle.

But then Wombeh gave me his Kindle cos he got a new one as a present.

And…I can basically get any fucking book I want in less than five seconds off Amazon…

    Yah honestly, e-books are the way forwards. I have a habit of reading a few different books at the same time (fiction, non-fiction, science etc) and that gets very cumbersome with physical books.

    With something like Kindle, it’s awesome!

    I was very surprised when the screen actually looks like pages from a book! But then you do pay full price for the books as opposed to getting it cheaply from charity shops & car boots! x

    you might find this of interest then ^_*

    book lender feature – I am not too sure about. It took them nearly 2 years to start on the “gift an ebook” feature.

    p.s. you might like nicholas sparks

    It looks nice 😛 and have read about it a couple of times and it seems really interesting.. But (like you mentioned)nothing beats the feel of holding a real book in one’s hands 😀

    The Kindle is really attractive though, I’m not going to lie.

    But doesn’t getting books off Amazon within five seconds still cost money? How much for downloading each book?.. And the kindle already costs a lot by itself. Imagine not being able to get books for free? 😛 .. hehehhe…

    cheryl: OOO THANKS! and i hate nicholas sparks he’s too sappy and emo T_T

    is a good starting point for recommendations of books (FREE ONES TOO!), also advertisement by new authors (they weren’t as bad as I thought, so far tried 10 new authors only one is stupid).

    OH and lots of ACCESSORIES recommendation *ahem* such as covers, cookbook sharings, coffee to drink with your books…. ahem ahem
