I am still in the book camp, although I'm warming to the
eBookers who exist all around me. They look so cool and sophisticated
with their eReaders and touching the screen like they're Tom Cruise in
Minority Report. Who knows what they're reading on that gadget? It is a
mystery, thereby making them a mystery.
I'm not as
cool. I carry regular books around, their covers a glaring button on my
chest, exposing pieces of myself to the world. My likes, my desires, and
even my fears. You can tell a lot about a person by the books they
But eBook readers...who are they? Their anonymity
draws me in. There are some books I'd like to keep hidden (tee hee
hee). But I'm frightened by the whole mechanics of it all. What if I
"plug" in and I'm sucked into some other dimension where my mind becomes
trapped by three-horned aliens, and they send one of their protozoan
soldiers to take over my body?
So I'd like to know, for
those of you who are eBook readers, what made you convert? And
for those who aren't, why are you still old school?
