It’s summertime and for lots of peeps that means vacations, so I think this is a great topic!
When you travel, do you bring one book with you? Or a pile of them?
And, is that pile still a load of paper to lug around? Or do you use an e-book reader like a Kindle or your iPad to help carry the load? (Because, even if you prefer paper, it can get heavy when you’re traveling!)
From New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, an Inside Out series e-short told from Mark’s point of view, as he battles his all-consuming desire for Crystal.
Devastated by Rebecca’s death, Mark is facing the chaos of the press and the police investigation alone, his reputation, his business, and even his freedom under threat. When a family emergency sends him back east to New York, he puts Crystal—who’s as capable as she is challenging—in charge of his San Francisco art gallery. A Master, all about control, right now he feels that he has none. With his secret sex club and his relationships of the past in the spotlight, Mark finds sanctuary in the one place he promised he would never be again—but cannot seem to resist. Crystal’s arms.
It’s time for summer reading, so … today’s question? What’s the worst thing you ever did to your reading material? Sand in the bindings from the beach? Dropped into the pool? Covers smeared with sunscreen?
And, if you’ve never done actual summer-time damage … have you EVER damaged your book/magazine/paper? Dropped it in the bathtub? Used it to kill a bug? Spilled with coffee?
It feels like a never-ending battle, doesn’t it? E-books against paper books-some people favor the former, some the latter, but I’m not here to start a war. Quite the opposite actually 😉 In this post I’d like to talk about the things I like of both formats. Yes, because I love both. Peeps who follow me also on twitter know that I’m in love with my kindle, and whenever I can’t find it (yes, I’m a bit distracted) my heart almost stops. But I’ve always loved traditional books as well, because to me there’s nothing like the feel of a real book, the one you can touch with your hands – it’s as if you could really touch the story, if that makes any sense…
Both e-books and paper books have their advantages, and so I’m going to share with you what I like about both..
