Because of some wonderfully generous friends and my son, I got a Kindle Fire for Christmas. I was on the fence about e-readers. Probably mostly because I'm still hoping to hold a copy of my book in my hands one day.
But, I must admit, I am enjoying my Kindle. I'm now playing Words With Friends and downloading books and other apps. I can show people videos and pictures. Okay, a little explanation here. I don't have a smart phone, so this is all new to me. I read my first book on it last week. It was smooth and easy. The only complaint I have is it's harder to look ahead for the sex scenes. Don't judge me, you know you do it too.
I heard there were a lot of e-readers sold this holiday season. What does that mean for the traditional publishing industry? It's anybody's guess. Hopefully there is room for both. I for one will still read books both ways. But, my Kindle is pretty cool.
What do you think? Do you have an e-reader or are you fighting the trend?
