I bought my first Kindle this year and I am so happy with it. I always thought that I would never move away from physical books, but this year, I decided to branch out and give it a go. It was the best decision I made and the best money spent.
Here are some of the things that I like most about my kindle:
I can download a book within minutes and start reading
The books are way cheaper
I can read books from authors that I would not normally see as they are not stocked on the physical bookshelves of bookstores, so I am exposed to fresh stories that appeal to me
I take my Kindle with me everywhere and my reading has been a true pleasure thanks to this device.
The e-book revolution is changing the landscape for both authors and readers in a positive way. There has been an explosion of books on the e-platforms which is a good and bad thing. It does mean that some of the books out on the e-platforms are not professionally edited nor ready for publication and as a reader you do not necessarily know this at the time of purchase. However, there are some absolute gem stories that are now available because of self-publishing. It is a great time to be an author and an even better time to be a reader.
