I suppose I cannot claim to have converted. Instead, my Kindle - bought because my eyes weren't what they once were and I couldn't read normal books unless they were under a 20,000W light and on a good day - has been a new beginning for me. Forget the ease of use, the shop in my lap and the savings made by buying this way, I have read 20 times more books than I ever had before.
I now have a back-lit Kindle - obtained for free with Nectar points, or some such like - whose font I can change and enlarge as needed. I can buy books whenever I am near my WiFi. I can look at covers (sadly only in black and white on my version), read snippets and try a book to see if I like it, all from the comfort of my own front room, and best of all, I can read late into the night, while my husband is asleep, because I can turn the lights out and the screen on.
I do read a real book now and again. I prefer them really. But my arm aches, as I tend to lie flat and the pages don't turn when I tap them, which, although exceedingly amusing to my husband, can confuse the 40 something mind late at night. ;-)
I have an upper limit at the back of my mind where I think, 'I'm not paying that for an e-book', but few of them go above this. So I won't be deserting the e-book world any time soon and I'm always interested in finding new books. And so to Kindle and all from the industry who have played their part in bringing about the e-book revolution, I thank you for giving me a second chance at the world of books.
