Weekly Writing Challenge: If Only

This week’s Mind the GapHow do you prefer to read, with an eReader like a Kindle or Nook, or with an old school paperback in hand?

The Daily Post asked this and offers a poll on it. The problem I have with polls is that you can typically only choose one answer; for me, I enjoy the ease with which I can get my hands on an e-book and am sometimes annoyed when the option is not offered. However, the shelves in my kitchen, living room, and bedroom attest to my love of books. There is nothing like opening a paperback (or hard cover) and smelling the smell of paper and ink. I have at least one book with fabric-like paper pages, it is an even bigger love affair. Have I read every word in it? No. Have I touched it and its pages often? Yes.

I can be found often, carrying a tablet or two which have my favorite eReader applications as well as carrying a well-word copy (or unbroken spine copy) of something. Regardless of my reading medium of the day (or hour), my fear is that I will end up like Henry Bemis…

    I agree with the poll comment and your philosophy on having tablets and books. The thing about this technological advance is that it just gives us another option. Everyone is so concerned about e-books taking over for print. i don’t see that happening yet. There are just too many established outlets for print. Perhaps within 30-50 years this will be the case, but not now.

      Yes, Joe–I agree!
