I’ve not one for the whole Kindle v Book debate. I have cupboards and shelves overflowing with books, and I have a fairly full Kindle library. Some books I have in both formats, either due to forgetting I already had a copy and buying a second one; or when I read a book on Kindle and love it so much I just have to have a paper copy in my hands.
One thing I do notice is that when reading on the Kindle (compared to a hard copy), I sometimes struggle with anything that requires a little more concentration. However at the moment, mainly due to our impending year of living out of suitcases, I’m on a self-imposed Kindle-only period to try to keep the weight of our luggage down.
So I’ve been thinking I need to either read lighter (both literally and figuratively); or I need to retrain my brain to deal with focussing on the Kindle.
But now I’m wondering if I am getting used to it, with Reads 10-12 all complex and challenging, moving between different settings, storylines, points-of-view, and time zones. All were well worthwhile, particularly The Seven Deaths – a whodunnit with writing as delightful and surprising as the storyline. And even now that I know whodunnit, I still can’t wait to read it again.
The final read for the month brought me back into my beloved middle-grade fiction with The Book of Answers (follow up to The Book of Secrets). My only complaint is that there is no book 3 to look forward to, so now I just have to be patient and wait for whatever comes next from A.L Tait 🙂
