Spyglass Viewer tells us why Amazon Kindle is better than books in 5 ways.
I was just talking to my mother, a book-worm, last night about this very sort of thing. Here’s her reasons why Amazon Kindle is NOT better than books:
- Nothing feels better than to have a regular book in your hands and reading it during travel.
- It’s a social thing. With a Kindle, no one knows what you are reading when you are on the train or bus but if you have a hardcover/paperback, everyone can see what you are reading and strike up a conversation about it.
- You can rent paperback or hardcovers free at your public library. You can’t rent with E-books.
- You have to pay for an eReader and for the e-books.
Those were her reasons. I do not agree with any of her reasons. Read Spyglass guest post for the reasons I DO agree with:
