Increasingly, I am noticing people on my train and the tube reading from Kindle’s and it concerns me. I don’t want to lose my love of books by transferring them to an electronic device.
I love holding books and flicking the pages, enjoying creative book covers, browsing for books either in a bookshop or online, getting excited by new titles and good reviews and seeing books stacked or lined up on a book shelf.
I’m someone who keeps books she has enjoyed. I also buy new, fancy versions of my favourite books. See below:
When I have my own home, I want to proudly display these books on a bookshelf. After all, we are supposedly what we read but if you hide what you read on an electronic device, are you hiding who you are?
Sure I get that a Kindle is useful for long journeys so you don’t need to carry heavy books. That’s fine, I just don’t want us to lose the books altogether from our lives.
Do you have a Kindle? Are you worried about losing books?
