I am about to finish my first novel on Kindle this week and I am being sold on the eReader (this was also a dilemma, since there are many spellings of this word). I know many of you already read eBooks, but this is a first for me. I have the Kindle for my PC, and was going to buy a reader, which I may, but then I purchased the Galaxy III mobile and now plan to put the free Kindle App on that device also.
I am a slow reader, but I think on the Kindle I read faster. I still have way too many paper books, but I may be shifting my inventory. I had written a previous post (EBooks: Do You Really Read Them?) and received many interesting comments. When I wrote that post I wasn’t sure I liked to read online.
I am also making a public apology today to the author of the novel I'm reading, (Hungry River, A Yangtze Novel by Millie Nelson Samuelson) who happens to be a great writing “bud.” I am just now finishing her first novel, originally written over seven years ago! Forgive the delay, friend. But, I am rooming with her next week at a conference and I was not going to show up not having read her book.
But, I am enjoying the journey. If you are a lover of historical fiction in the 1800s China, you’ll find this book filled with interesting facts and a slice of the spread of Christianity in this country. The book is based on the lives of her grandparents who were missionaries in China.
The book is on Amazon and, of course, on Kindle.
How many of you have a Kindle or another type of eReader? Why do you like it?
