Ok, so most of you already know I am an odd duck to say the least.
Perhaps my username should be changed to Mr. Ambiguous?
Ah, but I digress, as much of a tech geek I am I just cannot let go of days gone by. Nostalgia be thy name. I like the feel and smell of a book, am an avid reader, and was raised by my Grandfather (God rest his soul for he left us but a month ago) who taught English for thirty years.
However, I may have recently changed my world view radically!
Yes here comes Mr. Hyperbole!
I saw a novel I wanted to dive into and that it was available as an ebook on Kindle. I thought to myself, Gee I have a smart phone with many lovely features that I have yet to use. One of which is Kindle software, so I bit the bullet (Literally, as I find them quite tasty and nearly chipped a tooth, *sigh* but I digress once more.) and downloaded the book in question while my Son and I sat at a Hospice workshop in which he made a teddy bear out of one of Granddad's old shirts to assist in his grieving process.
I also downloaded the Kindle reader for my computer and greatly appreciated that it told me that my android had reached a further point and asked if I wanted to advance the computer reader to that page.
I still have a dream of living in a home with a study which I always envisioned having floor to ceiling bookshelves for my private library, but perhaps it will simply be a chair and couch with several ebook readers for family and guests.
Have you ever had a vision change by advancing times and technology? (e.g. anyone go from vast collections of vinyl to a single I pod?)
Has this been a positive or negative experience?
