Big, big trouble.
Right here in River City.
I said I’d never do it.
I’m a purist.
No Kindle/Nook for me!
I want the whole tactile experience! Placing the order. Anticipating the delivery. Excitement of receiving the box and tearing it open. Being the first person to hold that particular copy in my hands. Enjoyment of cracking the spine. Turning the pages. Ah….that new book smell! I want to immerse myself in the event!
I don’t want to hold a radiating gadget in my hands, weighed down by the heaviness of the device. Basking in the glow of a screen just doesn’t seem the same. It makes my eyes tired and burn if I read it too long.
It’s just not right.
The ability to have it exactly when I lust for it.
The vast assortment to choose from!
Books, magazines, newspapers………..and they offer some of the ones I actually read!
Hallelujah….I hear the angels singing…..
With a simple tap on the screen I can have whatever tickles my fancy at any given moment.
(Have I mentioned I have issues with late night decisions? LOL)
This is not good.
In the light of day I know I must control my impulses.
But then night falls and I sit basking in the glow of the small screen, giggling with delight as I read my latest purchase!
