Can someone please explain to me the draw to this?
Many of the blogs I read are all talking about the new release of Kindle 2 and how cool it is. I just don’t get it.
I love to read and have actually been reading a lot lately but instead of buying a book, I’ve been heading to the library to get my books. After all they are FREE and who doesn’t like free? Except for research type books, I actually can’t tell you the last time I bought a book from a bookstore.
Books, like movies I rarely read a second time so why would I want to carry them around in an electronic devise? I would probably never go back to them and I can’t share them. I also like holding the book, turning the pages, etc. You can’t do that with a Kindle. I like seeing books on a bookshelf (makes me look smart LOL), again can’t do that with the Kindle.
I can understand if say you are a college student and you can purchase all your books online at a lower price and if you need to carry those books around with you. They are after all, usually very heavy and by having them electronically you safe your back as well as have the convenience of having them all together for reference and such. I could see it if you use say a cookbook all the time, you could just open it up and there are your favorite recipes but other than this I don’t get it. A great user may be someone in the medical field that would have a need to reference materials and books all the time but I’m just a everyday person.
I will admit it is very cool looking, and I do like electronic toys so tell me why I would want one? What’s the draw I am missing? Come on see if you can enable me here LOL
I wanted to share two pictures that I shot on the way home from work.. Basically, it’s all about timing on these two. If I hadn’t left work when I did, I wouldn’t have been driving by the river just as this sunset was happening… Maybe I should leave work on time more often
Lastly, thanks for all the comments on yesterday’s picture of Paihe. I will be going back and seeing what I can do to adjust the contrast and post the results here. I tried real quickly last night but it wasn’t very successful..
Have a great Thursday!! Take care
