I still don’t have an e-reader, but I did get my mother a Kindle for her birthday (today–Happy Birthday, mom!). I have, like many book lovers, hesitated over this mechanized take on reading. But I will now confess, after loading books on mom’s and trying it out, they’re pretty fantastic. Easy to load, easy to read and oh-so-easy to transport an entire library wherever you go.
I will NEVER give up real books and I will ALWAYS treasure certain books that sit on my shelves, but I will grudgingly admit that e-readers are a great invention. Books are dead, long live books.
