Since the first eReader came out a lot of people have been questioning that little device. Some of them think you’re not a true reader if you only read on a eReader. Is that really true?
I don’t think so. You’re a reader even if you read on your phone. Most readers own a eReader because they don’t really have space in their houses so, they can’t buy physical books. Which is an amazing thing, you know? I think that shows how much that person likes to read. I mean, not having space in their houses to buy physical books didn’t stopped them. They went and bought an eReader to keep reading.
Introducing eReaders made the reading world a diverse one. Not only you can read physical books, but also, you can read on your eReader, your phone, your iPad, and even on your computer. Now we have a lot of options for different type of readers. I find this really amazing because if a person doesn’t want to buy books because they’re expensive, they go and buy an eBook which most of the times are cheaper. I always have a headache so reading in a eReader hurts most of times, but I do it anyway.
I own a Kindle, and I love it. I don’t use it often, but sometimes I do. If an author wants me to review his/her book but they can only send the eBook, I have my Kindle to read it. I usually go to the Kindle Store to buy the bestsellers deals because sometimes I just feel way too tired to hold a heavy books on my hands. Yes, sometimes I own the physical copy and the eBook version of the same book, but who cares? I’m supporting the author, no?
eReaders are good for book lovers. You don’t have to feel like you’re a less reader just because you only read on your eReader. You can have tons of books in your eReader, who doesn’t want that? Sometimes you’re going to college and you only have space for one book in your bag, or you don’t have space at all. eReaders don’t take a lot of space, and you can have it in your bag easily. If you take the subway like I do, eReaders are comfortable to read while you’re siting or standing in a subway. Believe me, I tried to read a physical book and I was so uncomfortable so, now I read on my Kindle.
If you’re a person who wants to read classics, but don’t have a lot of money to afford them, you can find most of them for free on the Kindle Store. No, I’m not joking… go to the kindle store and type “free kindle books classics” and you’ll find a lot of them.
As I said, eReaders are good. I think it’s good to at least own one for when we’re too tired to hold a big book in our hands. I like mine, it’s a simple Kindle, but it’s good. The batter of most eReaders last like a week, which is a good thing if you’re stuck in a plane for like 12 hours if you’re traveling far away. I encourage readers to not feel less when they read on eReaders. The only thing that matter is that you’re reading, and you love it. Yes, they feeling of holding a physical copy is unique, and I wouldn’t change that for anything, but that doesn’t mean reading on a eReader is the worst thing ever.
Don’t ever stop reading just because others think you should. You’re reading, that’s what matter.
I hope you all enjoy this post. I just needed to ramble for a little bit about this devices. Let me know in the comments what you think of eReaders, or if you own one. Thank you so much for reading. Until next time, xoxo.
