IMM: I Love My E-Reader!

Hi everyone!  I bought my e-reader over two months ago and I was a little skeptical over the whole thing.  But I was getting so many requests to review e-books that I finally caved and thought, Why not?  At first, I wasn't crazy about the whole thing, but I carry it in my purse all of the time, and suddenly, one day I realized I can't live without it.  Now I'm wondering how I made the transition from skeptic to believer.  I never run out of books or worry about leaving home without one as I have more than enough books on my reader to keep me happy for a year (as long as I remember to charge it once in a while).  It's convenient and it's easy to carry.  Does it mean I'll ever give up the printed page?  No!!!!  But I am fondly attached to my reader.

For Review:
Steel by Carrie Vaughn
Bumped by Megan McCafferty
Entwined by Heather Dixon
The Night Season by Chelsea Cain
The Restorer by Amanda Stevens
Of Dukes and Deceptions by Wendy Soliman (e-book)

From The Library:
Descent Into Dust by Jacqueline Lepore
The Book of Old Houses by Sarah Graves

I am still in the midst of my book ban and it is going quite well.  I have continued to avoid buying books, and although I am not supporting my local bookstore, I am supporting my local library.  And so far, no fines!!!  That's a huge accomplishment for me (lol).  I have also developed this huge interest in audiobooks and listen to them on my way to and from work.  I don't think I realized how great they can be.  When I get to work, I have issues getting out of my car and going in to work as I just want to listen to the story.  There's always some excuse, though, to keep one from going to work, isn't there?

  1. You make me wish that my commute to work took longer than 5 minutes. I don't think I could get too engrossed considering that I would only have time to listen to a couple of paragraphs. I do have a friend who admits to sitting in her driveway for quite a while if the audiobook is good though. Happy reading and listening!

    My mailboxes are here and here.
