I'm delighted with my eReader. I can fit it in my bag and take it everywhere with me, and it's pink and shiny!
For some reason, I read faster on the eReader than on paper, I haven't quite worked out why. Maybe, due to my job, I've got used to reading on screen or maybe it's just that the books I read on my eReader were lighter reads.
Having an eReader means I can download books from the e-Library and I can save on postage and package expenses which get quite high when living abroad.
However, there are a few inconveniences I've found:
- One is when I've got to choose the next book I'm going to read and I can't remember what the books I downloaded are about. There should be a system where you can access the blurb of each book directly, or say have it after the cover page of each eBook.
- Another is giving eBooks as a present. I tried buying a few eBooks for a friend's birthday present yesterday and I can only give them to her if her eReader is connected to my computer. Also, I can't really work out how to wrap it up.
- And the third inconvenience I've found is getting it signed by the author!
Do you renounce eReaders or are you a technology freak like me?
