Random Thought of the Day:
I have an ereader (Kobo Touch) that I barely use. I won it through a contest, tried it out, and realized I wasn’t a huge fan of reading on it.. especially when the battery dies. No fun. There are so many reasons why I prefer a real book over an ereader: the look and feel of books, the fact that people can see what I am reading/it can become a conversation starter, and mostly the way they look all lined up on my bookshelves.
I really wanted to get my hands on Lola and the Boy Next Door and Isla and the Happily Ever After and didn’t want to wait for an opportunity to head over to the bookstore so I downloaded copies of both to read on my Kobo. And guess what I discovered? I actually read FASTER on an ereader than with a traditional book. What the heck is with that?! I guess I find it easier to read because it is lighter than an actual book and my hands do not tire as quickly. And maybe seeing my progress displayed as a percentage motivates me to hit 100% complete faster. Whatever the reason for it I am quite surprised by the fact that I get through books at a much faster pace. Interesting.
