It’s not the books but the words and the stories

Monday, March 17, 2014

It’s been almost a year since I last purchased a book.   Ever since I bought a tablet, which I mostly use as an ebook reader, I have ceased buying print books. With the proliferation of free digital books, I was able to read the digital versions of the books that I’ve been dying to get hold of for years.  It would be better if I could own hardbound copies of all the books that I’d like to read, but I live in a country where books are prohibitively expensive; it makes more sense to read a free digital book than to buy it in its printed form.

It’s not really the books that I love but the words and the stories they contain.

I still have a few unread books, so I won't be switching to ebooks for a while. Also, I've been lazy. For the duration of two months at the hospital, I only read one book.
