Sadly, both Wiffy and I have become rather converted to Kindles. Why sadly? Because I love books very much, but don’t think I’m going to be buying many more physical ones (just as I haven’t bought a CD for years).

Some reasons:

  • We left for our vacation earlier in the year with a wine case filled with books in the back of the car. This had to be significantly reduced before we went to Crete. One Kindle each: job done. We can both read books either of us has bought (synced to the same account).
  • I couldn’t have got through Matterhorn on the tube, it is just so huge. Fine by the pool, but much easier on a Kindle.
  • Reading is good, in some lighting better than books (the words feel like they are leaping into your brain).
