Thirteen Things about Reading E

1. I can take my library on vacation.

2. There’s no space for one more book in my house.

3. My house doesn’t come with a search feature to tell me which room, which pile, which box, which shelf holds the book I’ve spent three hours looking for.

4. Paper books don’t come with a search feature to help me find a particular line.

5. Paper  books don’t come with a search feature that searches all my notes and bookmarks.

6. My iPod Touch can hold several hundred books and fit them in my pocket. My pocket can’t.

7.  I love the smell and feel of a forest more than i love the smell and feel of a book.

8. I don’t have to drive an hour to buy a book.

9. I don’t have to wait a week for the book I just bought online.

10. When I share a book with a friend my Nook remembers to give it back to me two weeks later.

12. When I’m at work and waiting on a lengthy task I can whip out my iPod Touch or my PDA and look busy while I tap screens and make notes, but really I’m reading a romance novel.

13. I can read romances without others snickering because I’m holding a book with a man and woman groping each other on the cover. Which means you guys can give romances a try(try my erotic romance novel first) and no one would know.
