I really feel I need to get this off my chest and plaster it on the internet. Here goes:
I hate my eReader.
Yeah. I said it. I do. I would rather have real paper tied together with string and ink on the page than just plastic and more plastic and eInk. I want to be able to smell the faint tree-like smell of the book. Is it weird that I smell my books? You know what. I don’t care. I smell books and I’m proud.
I am saddened that my eReader smells like plastic.
So why did I get an eReader? I thought I could save some money, which I have. There are several great deals for eBooks. However, I’ve found most books I want to read COST THE SAME AS AN EBOOK. OR REALLY CLOSE TO THE SAME. NOT ENOUGH OF A DIFFERENCE FOR IT TO MATTER. WELL I GUESS IT MATTERS BUT AAAAGGGH I BE CAPS RAGING.
I just kept convincing myself I would get used to it after awhile. Well I haven’t. It’s been six months and I still heart the real books more.
There. Frustration out for the interwebz to see.
Final Thought: eBooks get 10 out of 15 toadstools, as they are kind of cool
Real books get ALL OF THE TOADSTOOLS
