I joined the e-reader fanclub nearly seven months ago. And I could extol the virtues of digital; how I’m reading faster, reading more, able to read while I’m waiting for all the perennially late people in my life in the car or restaurant, or even how I love being able to click a button and read a book.
No, here’s one good reason to own an e-reader this winter you probably haven’t thought of (I hope you can forgive my bitmappery):
A year ago, I was reading either hardbacks or massive 400+ page tomes that required my hands not only to get cold from reading but often made my fingers stiff from trying to keep such a large book open for chapters at a time.
It didn’t take me long (before we’d turned on the heat, even) to figure out I could comfortably settle into a blanket, hold my “book” through the blanket, and read without cold fingers. Maybe it’s just a girl thing. Or maybe it’s just a me thing. But I love this.
Is there anything your e-reader can do (or that you can do with your e-reader) that surprised and delights you?
