Jeepers Creepers eReaders are good for your peepers

It now seems ancient history but it was not that many years back when people (myself included) were looking at these new fangled eReaders in dismay. They will never replace real books and whilst I still love physical books, I do find that most of my fiction reading is done on my Kindle. A case in point of how the Kindle has become my go to device for fiction is that I recently bought the new Giles Kristian book, Camelot in hardcover (I love and collect this author) and then picked up the eBook version for reading.

I will no longer call print books real books to differentiate them from eBooks, since both are real books. When you're in the story the delivery medium matters not.

"eReaders have become hugely popular in recent years. While at the start, many people claimed that they would never replace actual books, with the tactile nature of page turning part of the fun of reading for many, their usefulness has converted more than a few critics. Part of the appeal of eBooks is for anyone to publish their work, and therefore easy for people to find exactly what they’re looking for. Want to find the biography of an obscure Belgian artist or the local history of your area? Chances are that someone has written an eBook on the subject, and you can download it instantly."

"It's an eccentric dimwitted character book. Sort of like a set in Wales version of a Florida set Dave Barry, Carl Hiaasen, Bill Fitzhugh novels. It ends up not being a bad novel at all. Only takes a few hours to read too, give it a go."
