I love the library. I’ve been browsing the aisles of my local library since I was a little girl. When I was in college the library became my haven for research (which I looooove) and studying (which I love even more … well, the learning). As an adult my local library became the place where I found my escape to other worlds. We live in a small town and I’m not kidding when I say I read my way through a better part of the fiction section.
But now? Now that I’ve found the world of publishing and actually meet and talk with authors on a daily basis, my need for the library has dwindled. Because most of the books I’m reading these days are electronic.
They’re great. The same wonderful stories on my laptop. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy snuggling up in bed with a print book, but as soon as my next royalty check rolls in … I’m getting an ereader. Yep, one of those hand held wonders of modern technology that can hold a whole library of books in the palm of my hand.
Electronic books are generally less expensive and I can shop from the comfort of my office chair and download and be reading the books within minutes. Oh, you gotta love that!
This week, March 7-12, is the week of the e-book. Come celebrate! Buy yourself an ebook and enjoy! There’s lots to choose from out there…but of course you want to pick up one of mine!
