My latest distraction
On my birthday I got the best birthday present EVER!
My love bought me a Sony e-reader. I absolutely loooooove it. It was expensive and I never thought I would want one of these things because I like holding an actual book. But when I got and e-reader app on my phone I realised how easy it is. The main reason for me to want an e-reader was the costs. Sounds silly because these things are not cheap, but neither are books.
Book prices can be a bit ridiculous to me. You buy a little bundle of inked paper and it will cost you 10 euro’s if you’re lucky. But if you go for the prettier covers they easily set you back 20 to 30 euro’s. So I would rarely buy books that I wasn’t absolutely sure about and that way I didn’t really try any new books or authors. Aside from that, it’s very light so perfect for travelling and I can carry about 300 books with me. 😀
We have a big book closet in our livingroom but it’s full with all kinds of books I love and read over and over. With my reader I can download books I’m interested in but wouldn’t buy because they’re too expensive. It’s already led to some great discoveries in new authors. Gotta love the reader!
If you’re thinking about buying one, I highly recommend it. Yes, it’s quite the investment, the good ones are not cheap. But when you’re a fast reader and you love to drown yourself in new stories, you’ll have that money back in no time because you don’t have to buy that many books anymore. It’s truly worth it!
This didn’t become a very long blogpost but when I’m distracted from blogging about make-up, now you know what happened: I’m probably stuck on my couch in a book I just can’t put away. 😉
