#757: Check out an ebook

07 Feb

I’m not an ebook person.  I have a kindle, and I do think it’s extremely convenient to be able to store multiple books on my phone for those annoying subway waiting periods without having to lug around physical copies. But I still like to hold and flip through paper books; I doubt that will ever change.

Yet even I have to admit that checking out an ebook from the library was ridiculously easy and fast and a very useful way to obtain my work book club’s book for the month.

Of course, if it were a book I thought I’d actually want to read again, I would have bought a physical copy from the bookstore.  There’s just something about touching the pages that cannot be replicated electronically.  Plus, as far as I know, they haven’t yet come out with a kindle accompanied by “old book smell.”  If they do one day, I may change my mind.
