“How do you know you have lost touch with physical books and have been using the kindle for far too long? When you forget that you really have to turn the paper rather than clicking it. ”

-Something that happened yesterday night when I started reading the Cursed Child book. I was left wondering for a while why the page didn’t turn.

    1. My olfactory senses are shot so I have never been able to understand the smell of books. But I love the feel of them. But now it looks like I am getting out of touch. 🙂

  1. The book-lover never gets loses touch with books. My Kindle is used only when traveling on trains or planes. it’s an invaluable tool for the traveler or commuter and like all technology should be used carefully. The Kindle has no magic, one doesn’t feel excitement at the thought of opening up a new book or wait impatiently for the phone call from the bookshop to say that the ordered volume is ready for collection. I still buy books, still use my local library, and I still keep putting up more and more bookshelves. It’s difficult to do that on a Kindle where everything looks alike. Kindles have advantages, of course, print can be enlarged, bookmarks aren’t necessary, but it’s harder to turn back to the page you want unless you know the number whereas the physical book can almost direct you back.

    1. Very true 🙂 I moved to Kindle, because I got no space for my books anymore. And since I keep travelling frequently, it becomes a lot easier with Kindle. With the limited space I have, I had to make that choice. But I still keep buying books that are part of a series or that I feel are definitely worth it.
