I LOVE to read! And I like series more than just single books. I always want to know what happens next in the characters lives, and series give me that satisfaction. Ever since I received a Kindle Fire for my birthday, I’ve been reading all the free eBooks I can find. I’ve discovered a few new favorite authors, especially recently. I usually read them on the iPad now with the Kindle app, or even on my iPhone.
Recently, I downloaded book 3 in The Green Series by Judy Christie. I then had to find books 1 and 2 at the library. Of course then I needed number 4 and was delighted to find number 5 as another free eBook.
While my daughter was sick today, I discovered that I preferred using an eReader over a paper book. I NEVER thought I would say that! And the only reason I can say that is because it is extremely difficult to change the pages on a book when you have a 36 pound child laying on you in an upright position so they can breathe. Any movement I made stirred her out of sleep a little bit- and I did not want that to happen!
I also prefer the iPad Kindle app when I am on the treadmill. I do not like running on a treadmill. It’s boring! I like to see living things as I run, even if it’s just grass! So the treadmill is a challenge for me, and having my iPad helps a lot! I pull up a book and can read while I run. I just have to flick my finger across the screen to turn the page and not worry about hurting the binding on a book and pages turning and trying to get them to stay on my current page.
Now, were I on a road trip and my iPad was being used to entertain my child, I would definitely appreciate a paper copy of a book! I do like to hold a book and turn pages, but if I am looking for convenience and ease of use while taking care of a sick kid, I go for the eReader. I would also prefer a paper book if I was on my bean bag chair in front of the fire reading for the night, or lounging on the beach on vacation. So there is a time and place for each, and I am grateful that I can choose between the two on a daily basis!
Here is the first book in the series I am reading:
