Printed books are making a comeback, and the Kindle and its like are in decline. For anyone who doesn't know how to use a book this is the best introduction, although I'm sure most of us on here don't need any help of course.
I used to have many colleagues who were on a Help Desk and this still makes me smile, there are other versions but this is the original.
I use both, print books are my first love, but a kindle is easier to read in bed when I can't sleep or if feeling poorly,they're handy for travelling or hospital stays too
Everything that @Nessie says. I find a kindle so easy to read at bedtime and it is lighter to hold than a book, specially with arthritic hands and less painful.
I agree with stixxee, how weird is that !!! We buy two books most weeks, read them then donate to our local library, they put a nice sticker in with donation printed on. ( no names) we also buy charity shop books which go to the community centre to raise funds. None of this is possible with an E book. Books are for sharing. Defend Kindle if you must but they are a selfish concept. Complaints c/o @Tarantula. @Stixxee@homebaker@Jade@Nessie
I'm not defending kindle, I just enjoy using one, I buy print books as well, I give a lot of them to charity but cook books I keep because like my kindle books I want to keep on reading/using them and my house is very small so don't have the room for all the books I so selfishly want to keep!
If anyone you know is going into hospital & likes reading you can loan them your kindle packed with books, that's not selfish is it ?
Forgot to mention when we donate books to the library, they put them in plastic covers, is that not weird? @Stixxee
