Fell out of love (with my Kindle)

Friday, July 8, 2016

When I first got this ereader a year and a half ago, I immediately fell in love with it. It made my reading life so much easier. It offered hundreds of books in one location and incredibly fast and easy access to them in an instant. It gave accessibility, convenience, and portability. It also did not hurt that its screen resembled that of a real page from a book. I read many books in it, and I thought everything was going great.

Like most love stories I guess, I fell out love with my Kindle too.

It just did not have the same feel naymore after a while. It also felt a lot like cheating - not supporting bookstores or print.

Truthfully it's about six months since I last used it, and after months of mainly choosing to buy and read physical books instead - even while traveling - I think it's safe to say that I will probably never reach for it again.

I figured this can be a little goodbye post - an ode to the device I thought I'd always love. We've had great moments, but alas, physical copies won me over yet again.
