I’ve been getting a lot of questions (in real life..not here..obviously, with no followers ..but let’s not go there) about my Kindle. ”How often do you use it?”, ”How long does it last?” , ”Why don’t you just read a real book?”
Well, let’s just start by saying I’m not really a book lover. Quite a controversial statement for someone who owns a Kindle (and now a blog, scary), but it’s true. I read, but don’t usually do it for fun. I do have a favorite book (American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis) , which to me is a sure sign that I haven’t read enough.
So I got the Kindle last year and 6 months in, I’m still using it. <— big deal for me
How often do I use it? – Every single day. Not a day missed since November 2011. It’s like an AA recovery program for non-readers.
How long does it last? – I use it for roughly 40 mins per day. I charged my battery 2 months ago. That should give you an idea!
Why don’t I read a real book ? – Practicality. The books that I have gathered over the years take up too much space, either strewn over the house or in my bag. The Kindle weighs half a pound.
Ironically I am just this weekend going to buy a bookshelf to store all my real books. If I’m brave enough, I will post my ‘collection’ on here.
