Okay, its kinda weird, i don’t know how many of you feel like me,
reading ebook, tried but seems that’s not my cuppa ‘chai’
for a person like me who is crazy about books, and always love to read anytime, any where,
i really don’t feel comfortable reading a whole book from laptop, iPad, eBook reader,cellphone etc
its an odd feeling, i enjoy reading in the old fashioned way, rather than hooked to an electronic device,
main issue is, the smell, any true book worm would agree with me, the smell of a book (new or old) can never be missed,
next comes the pleasure of page flipping, how can anyone miss the satisfaction of turning the pages?
nothing can match the rustle and the paper’s texture brushing our fingers while flipping pages 🙂 not even the virtual page flipping effects helps me.
most important thing i can’t compromise is choosing,browsing and buying books from book shops – love to shop books. I love the experince of choosing a book by its cover, (often by its back cover 🙂
and convincing myself whether to buy a paper back or a library edition,
to me when i hold a book and read it , i completely surrender myself to it, its like a rhythmic act,
there is nothing else apart from me and the book while i read it.
Nothing makes me happier than a good book on a rainy day with a cup of coffee 🙂
anyways i don’t have anything against e books 🙂 its just my personal choice.
i don’t think i can ever enjoy a complete book in any other form other than a real book.
