e-books

I love reading. I read anything I can get my hands on but I prefer to read fiction. Specifically historical romance, mystery thrillers, and paranormal. It is easier to read fiction because then I don't have to think. I don't have to analyze anything hence it is just pure entertainment for me. I buy books online. I also buy them at flea markets or yard sales. Mostly paperbacks because hardbacks are expensive and bulky. But now that I can actually download a book to read on either my computer or phone, I am on the testing phase. If I can find books cheaper to download then I might just do it this way instead of paying more from the store for paperbacks. Hence, I downloaded Kindle from amazon. Download was free and there were actually books that were free that I have downloaded and read. It is pretty cool. Not as fun as reading a paperback which I can carry anywhere I want but close enough if I am using my touchpad or my phone. The laptop is just too bulky to carry all over the house. I am enjoying this new fad and I think I will hope for this to last longer. I even bought an e-book just over an hour ago to read at my convenience. This does not mean I will stop buying paperbacks though because I will continue to buy them as they are available. I am just trying out new avenues.
