Ahh okay. Yep, yours does look different.
I haven't talked to you in forever. How are you doing sweetie?
I read books for free on my Kindle
Hello old friend. I wish I was richer, younger, and less busy, but all in all I am doing great. Hope you are also.
I don't think it is a matter of which format is best. Just folks discussing why they prefer one over the other as you did here. I too enjoy sitting back with a real bound book in my hand. I like not worrying about having to track how much power I have left on the Kindle and being able to go back to a previous chapter or whatever more easily. Paper books are user friendly.
BUT. . .on the road or at interminable waits at the MVD or doctor's office or at loose ends when visiting somebody or whatever, I have a whole library of books and reference information and games at my fingertips with my Kindle Fire. I can Facebook or access USMB or do many of the tasks I can do with a computer. Or just sit and finish up a good book and start another or shop for a new book to read. And with many of the e-book services out there--especially Amazon--there are lots of pretty good or at least readable free e-books for those times you really don't have extra money to spend.
I think most people who love books probably love books regardless of the format.
I just grabbed a couple of free books from Amazon yesterday, then got some more from Baen's free library. Then there's the Gutenberg project and some other places to go for free books.
There are plenty of cheap ebooks available.
For those who prefer Kindle more, you might like the Kindle Oasis
