Yet another reason to love my Kindle

I know some people are still resistant to the whole idea of e-books, but consider this. I had a £5.00 Amazon gift certificate and in the past few days I’ve bought:

The Pure Gold Baby, Margaret Drabble
Dear Lupin, Charles Mortimer, Roger Mortimer
Love, Nina, Nina Stibbe
The Goldfinch, Donna Tartt

and I still have another £1.04 to spend. How else could I get these recently published books so cheaply? Unread books on the Kindle will be rivalling my TBR pile soon, but they take up no house room.

Tell me what you think of Dear Lupin! I loved it. Mortimer Senior sounds so much like my dad in his letters.
I will!

E-Books

I agree with you completely about e-books. I don't feel at all guilty of my electronic TBR stack - which keeps growing.

Also, when I'm having trouble with the arthritis in my thumbs / hands, reading on my Kindle is less painful than holding open a paper book.

I'll always love my old 'real' books, but my new ones will mostly be e-books.

Re: E-Books

Adjusting the font size is a big plus, too.
My electronic book pile is huge and my bijou flat would be piled floor to ceiling with books, if I could afford the paper versions. It's one of the best presents I've ever had (from Rob and Daniel one year).
Yay for the Kindle. But what did I do when I was out yesterday? Bought books!
I still buy books as well. I like AA and Readers Digest books and bought one about Britain's national parks and one about the coast recently and they just aren't as good on a Kindle. Novels are better on it.

I love my Kindle... And we obviously have similar taste, because I bought The Goldfinch as well... And I'm still buying books.

Re: Kindle

Like minds. Book buying is definitely an addiction.
