I’ve resisted eReaders for ages. My mother has offered to buy me one for ages because she loves her Nook and Kindle so much. People have offered me eBooks that I’ve turned down because I prefer printed books. But, I might have an eReader. Or something that could function as an eReader.
My husband and I ‘won’ a free tour of a member-only family-friendly RV resort. Since we have neither children nor an RV, we weren’t really interested. But, they told us, it comes with a free weekend of camping and a tablet. Free camping weekend? We were so in.
It was obvious the second we walked in that we were not ideal customers for this place so the 90-minute tour turned to 45 and we were out of there in less than an hour. With a tablet. I’d known we’d get it, but until my husband handed it to me and said, “Now you have one,” I hadn’t processed what we’d do with it. It’s a mini and runs an Android platform. I’m not sure what to do with it besides use it as an eReader. I downloaded the Kindle app and that’s about all I plan to do with it.
I’m not sure this will get me reading more eBooks. I love paper books and I love the look of them on my shelf and discovering them in used book shops. I love feeling a book in my hand and turning physical pages. Maybe I’ll find a use for this new contraption. maybe I won’t. But for now, I’ve got it and we’ll see what happens.
Until next time, write on.
