It’s confession time!
Just like last week, I hear you guys screaming: WHY? WHAT? IS SHE CRAZY?! And just like last week, yep guys, I’m crazy, but not as crazy as you think I am!
A few weeks ago I bought an e-reader and I AM IN LOVE. Since I have it, it’s always by my side. I don’t lose sight of him. Just like right now, I’m lying on the couch with my laptop writing this blog and my e-reader is next to me (I am not kidding, it’s true!!).
So back to the actual confession: I’m ditching all my physical books – well, not all of them. But at least half of them. And the main reason I’m ditching them is that of my e-reader because let me get this straight, I prefer e-books over actual books. (Seriously, I hear you guys screaming). Yes, it’s true! I like to lay on my couch when I’m reading a book and one thing that bothers me beyond extent is that I don’t get to do that quite relaxingly (is that a word?) when I’m reading an actual book. It’s just so hard. How do you guys hold the book?
Another thing is that e-books are way cheaper (Yep, I’m throwing that reason also in it, sorry). I’m a student and I don’t have a lot of money to spend, so an e-reader is a perfect solution. Really!
Also, another reason is I can travel anywhere I want, and I still got like 140 books with me that I could read. You can’t do that with physical books guys! (I’m actually picturing it and dear Lord, I hope I’ll never have to go through that). Also a really lame reason, but it’s the truth!
And I get what you’re thinking: Then why do you have to ditch all of your books? Well first of, to make money, but second of all: I’ve got a lot of physical books I bought in an upwelling and I actually don’t really like them that much. You know that feeling? I thought I should buy them because they were really cheap, but I don’t see myself reading that book ever, actually. So, why not sell it, earn some money, and make your bookshelf nice again? (I mean it, a lot of those books are quite ugly and so my bookshelf isn’t that nice too). So, buying an e-reader is the perfect solution.
What do you guys think of an e-reader? Do you ever think about selling your books?
