**Note: Today’s blog is a follow-up to THIS one**
Last week I was on a mini-vacation. While I thought that it’d be a good idea to begin my new book for my Book Review on the plane…I was wrong. During the flight, I began to read “Click: An Online Love Story,” a book that instantly had me hooked! I was about half-way through when the pilot said that we’re about to land and I knew that it was the end of my reading time. Now, while I am beginning to get accustomed to reading the e-book way, I can see how it’s convenient, but not in this case. I had no choice, but to stow it away, for what could have given me at least twenty more minutes of reading if it were an actual book.
While everyone says that the e-book is the new way of the world, have they considered that it’s not workable in certain cases?
- The battery could die
- You might lose your charger, or might not have a plug that’s available
- You might be on a plane and are asked to stow your book
- It has a better chance of getting lost or stolen, (who is going to steal a book?)
- If it gets wet or falls in water, then it’s definitely damaged, (but if you had a book, all you have to do is let it dry out)
