Read an E-Book Week is March 2nd through the 8th this year. Do you wonder how this event got started? Or perhaps you know. I had no idea, but I found this wonderful article at the Huffington Post that tells all about Rita Toews, the lady who came up with the idea. I think the article was written in a past year, but it still gives us the Story Behind “Read an E-Book Week.”
Another interesting article “How do E-Books Change the Reading Experience?” is found in the New York Times. Mohsin Hamid and Anna Holmes discuss how technology affects the way we read.
What’s your opinion? Do you enjoy reading E-Books, or do you prefer print books?
Print books, paperback or hardback, are still my favorites. There’s just something about curling up on the sofa or bed with a book in my hands and escaping into another time and place with delightful characters.
I also enjoy reading an E-Book on my iPad. The thing I like best about the E-Book is the fact they’re easier on my eyes than the print is. My vision is growing worse each day. I have cataracts, floaters, and I see flashes of light sometimes. The eReader is clearer because the print is larger and there is the lighted background.
Face Book has a page to join for Read an E-Book Week.
To get in the spirit of the week, I’m gifting a copy of one of my E-Books on Amazon to all that are interested. Your choice.
