Be warned about your library in storage. I had them stored in a weather but not bug tight shed. It brought tears to my eyes to see my life time collection of books go to the dump. They looked great but smelled terrible. I brought in the Hobbit trilogy and thought I would give it another read. Within a day my entire home had a horrible stink and it was all from those books. From the first book I remember begging my mother to buy for me to my last purchase.... had to be tossed.Kindle. I have a bazillion books in storage because I never moved them to my tiny house with no room. I initially bought some from Amazon but then got a library card and borrowed books through Libby. Then 2 things happened pretty much at the same time - my Kindle died and my library redid their whole system and I'd have to go in and get a new card. I haven't done either yet. Le sigh.
Funny thing is, I've never used bookmarks and even at my age I will just pick a book up, locate where I was and carry on from there, even if it's been a few weeks since I last read that book. I've never found this difficult.Definitely Kindle. If your bookmark falls out and you're not at a chapter break, good luck! Tough to search for a phrase you remember in a paper book.
Of course, I'm a fan of e-books, particularly the Amazon Kindle! E-readers provide many benefits, such as access to a huge library in one device, the convenience of carrying multiple books with you, and customizing the text to suit your preferences. Amazon Kindle also gives you access to a variety of book formats and services, making reading even more fun. It also saves money on buying books. So it’s worth a lot of thought.What do you prefer?
