It's funny that I even have to ask such a question, but the world has undergone some amazing changes in my lifetime. And you see, I'm a fifty-something Grammy who can still vividly remember the pre-digital age, where there was no such thing as an eBook. In my day, a book was a book was a book, and that was all there was to it.
To me, there's nothing as relaxing as settling back against the cushion of my favorite overstuffed chair (or better yet, propping myself up with pillows in my bed--that's the epitome of luxury!) with a brand-new, much-anticipated novel in my lap (preferably a weighty one, they're the best!), waiting to be cracked open, and a cup of sweet and creamy hot coffee resting on a table nearby. If this scenario sounds like Heaven to you, we would get along swimmingly.
No offense, Kindle, but you just can't measure up to the perfection of a real live book. Not in this woman's opinion, anyway. For instance, I can't imagine a young mother reading to her small children while gathered around your glowing screen, when those eager readers would so much rather flip the glossy pages of a beautifully illustrated picture book.
If you love to turn the pages of a book the way I do (and you can't resist a good page-turner of a novel with a surprise ending!), leave me a comment by Oct. 31 and you could win a signed copy of Erin's Ring. I'll throw your name in a hat, and at midnight on Halloween I'll draw the winner.
This historical novel can be enjoyed by readers
from middle school to middle age!
There are only ten days left to enter the contest, so leave me a comment if you'd like to win a copy of this not-Kindle book--for yourself, or for the young reader on your Christmas shopping list.
