|Titles considered for the book group on December 16th – we chose ‘What I Loved’|
Anyway, back to the subject in hand. It occurred to me that instead of having to lug the titles, or take pictures of them and hope that the shop has them, I could have already downloaded the books onto a Kindle, and passed that around the group.
I know that for someone who works in a bookshop even considering a Kindle is paramount of blasphemy, but hear me out. I think if I had a Kindle, I’d still buy the book. At least I’d buy it if it was a good read….
I don’t know, but the idea of being able to carry thousands of titles away when working, commuting or even travelling, rather than the books taking valuable shoe-space in my suitcase, well, it’s got to be an attractive proposition?
There are of course other e-book readers on the market, notably the iPad, but having already got an iPhone, which is not without its problems, plus the significant price difference, Kindle looks to be the favourite for me at least.
What do you think? Is the Kindle on your Christmas wish-list?
