Buying an eReader

Recently I crossed over to the dark side. I purchased an eReader and as I played with it that first night, I had one of those “why did I fight you for so long” moments. My books have been published as eBooks yet still I resisted and now, looking back, I’m really not sure why.

A few days later, firmly sold on the idea, l committed an act that I would once have thought almost sacrilegious. I cleaned off my bookshelf—my beloved Agatha Christies and John le Carré—and bundled them off to my local thrift store. An act that once would have been heartbreaking now felt liberating. I was freeing myself of baggage.

Now, my library is in my hand. I have more books on my little memory card than I ever had on the shelf and I’m rediscovering the joy of reading. I’m glad that I finally made the move to an eReader.
