KIND OF A MEME FOR MAY

As I have been a bad friend here, due to me being sick most of April, I will do this as a way for me to be with you guys “KIND OF A MEME FOR MAY…”

Today the subject is books…How do you read them?

I for one, as a long life lover of books, and later being a book seller, I´ve always loved my books...
Big, heavy and with a lot of pages to turn…HEAVEN!
I have shelf upon shelf in my apartment filled with books, a lot of them standing in two rows…

But after I god breast cancer in 2007, things changed….as you know, my fine motor skills gets worse and worse, so in the end I had problems holding a real book, it would be to heavy to read in bed.
And spending a lot of time in bed due to pain and problems, means wanting to read ;)

But a lovely Lady called RJ Scott got me a Kindle!!
What a life saver!

It is easy to use; I can download books to it with one click, and then just read.
Doesn’t mean that I don´t buy hardback/paperback books, because I do…

If you take a look at my Kindle it is almost only M/M books….as my shelves are books collected over the past 36 years ;)


But now….how do you like to read your books and what kind of books do you read?

I'm a fan of real books - I love bookstores (never let me loose in one!) and the smell of new books but by now I'm running out of space to store new books so I'm thinking about getting a Kindle as well... It would be easier for travelling as well because my books always take up half the suitcase when I'm going on holiday :P

I love bookstores too, got an education as a bookseller;)
I love reading a "real" book, but as my hands get worse, reading in bed is easier on a Kindle..
It is a real help.
When I was on holiday in England and Scotland, I had an extra big fold-out canvas bag to all the books I bought. They are so much cheeper than here in Denmark.
