I, for one, am a technology geek, as far as iPods, iPads and all things computer are concerned. I love the fact that I can purchase a book online or check one out from a library to read on my tablet.
But that being said, even though all the technology is so convenient and wonderful.... I still love a real, honest to goodness paper BOOK.
What's your opinion??
I've downloaded a couple of books, to my laptop, but I end printing them to actually read them. On audio, I'm still in CD mode, and flummoxed myself when I inadvertently bought an MP3 version of The Martian, as my equipment can't keep track of the tracks. I use a portable DVD player to listen to my books in the car and at home. I made that shift when the CD player in my car died. Did I say I am a cheapskate too?
My reading memory is so tied to actually having the book in hand and experiencing the words in a particular spot on the pages, that an electronic book would frustrate me. I'd have to learn all new reading skills.
