For many a moon I’ve been contemplating getting a E-reader. I have to carry around so many books–I’m often reading two at a time. During any given week, I’m reading one fiction novel and one non-fiction autobiography, historical, or opinionated rant and rave essay. I also like to read medical review books as well as medical journals. My backpack (well if you can call a messenger bag a backpack) is often crammed with journals, magazines and other these books. One of my friends offered to buy me an e-book as a birthday gift, but I declined, thinking it was too expensive a gift to receive (even though I am his best friend and served as best man at his wedding).
Yesterday a co-worker had purchased one of the newer e-books (I’m not using any brand names because I don’t want people accidentally landing here via net searches). She was telling me that along with holding up to thousands of books, it could also do some light internet surfing. I was pretty impressed.
So, I’m going to do some research and find the best options/prices for one of those gadgets. And hopefully in a few weeks, I’ll have condensed my library into a thin electronic device!!
