My American sister (I only call her that to annoy her) is a kindle pusher and this week she had a success because she convinced my (not the most technical person in the world) mum to buy one. We have been arguing the pros and cons for a while now.
cons (as I see them)
I like books
I buy second hand books which are cheaper than kindle books
I use the library which is free
it has an amazing screen that is a dream to read and therefore I don't need my (extremely annoying) reading glasses
did I say pros plural, I meant pro because that's the only one there is.
My American sister says she still buys books and proved it by buying about thirty from a library sale recently so in her opinion books and kindle are not mutually exclusive
but now I think I have her
Bookmarks! You can't use a bookmark in a kindle, in fact it would be pointless
and just look at this beautiful bookmark that I bought from carol's crafts. There's no question it would scratch your kindle but it looks beautiful in my book. I already know what her answer will be... You can still buy books.
I have added punctuation to my title because my lovely partner insists it doesn't make sense. All I can say is it makes sense inside my head!
