Back among the living! Wow, it's been a million years. At least.... Sheesh!! *LOL*
I've really missed communicating with you ladies so I'm happy to do a quick post I've been thinking about for some time.
In a world where your phone will do pretty much everything expect take out the trash, I'm noticing everyone seems to be retreating more and more into their own little world and I think its disturbing. Are you with me?
I'm not much better than the masses. I carry my phone everywhere. I use it for SO much that I'm not sure how I'd live without it. It's my phone, my phonebook, my "map", my radio, my email, my internet, my camera, my notebook...kinda scary how much I do with it. And let me not forget--my phone is my bookshelf.
That Kindle app!!! Oh baby!!! I don't know what I'd do without it. For someone who usually has 4 books going at one time (I know some of you have WAY more than that, but that's a lot for me) it is uber handy to read on my phone. I love it! Where before I'd have to carry several books in my purse,--much to the chagrin of my shoulder--now, all I need it my trusty Galaxy Note 4. Kindle, my shoulder thanks you.
BUT..... cue, menacing music....
The more I use my phone and the more I READ on my phone, the more I get headaches--so much so that I can't even LOOK at my phone or a computer for hours as a time. NOO!!! So frustrating! Even though actual made-from-paper books will always be my favorite, I LOVE my ebooks. *wahhh!!!*
As I've been thinking about it though, I think this is a blessing in disguise. I have this yearning to be less technology dependent, so in a way, these annoying headaches are a good thing. I find myself reaching for magazines and paper books more. I have started writing more letters in place of emails, and I find ways to avoid my phone, where before I was reaching for it very often-- and I LOVE that!
I feel like I rediscovered the joy of reading paper books (never stopping loving it, just in case you were worried! LOL) thanks to the invention of the ebook.
So, this whole post was just to try and answer the three year old question.....To Kindle or not to Kindle.... and I think the answer is: for me, Kindle about 43.7% of the time. ;)
Tell me--how much do you Kindle?!?!?!
