Imaginative Discussion: Defender of e-Books

Imaginative Discussion: Defender of e-Books

September 17, 2014 Imaginative Discussions, Lyn 5

      Time to bring up a sticky topic: all the hate for e-readers and e-books. I can’t say how many times I see comics and jokes aimed to poke fun at people who use a Kindle or a Nook instead of a paperback. I am here to say that I use an e-reader, and I defend this new form of digital book formatting just as much as reading itself.   It seems that there is some epic, ground-breaking war between digital and paper happening on the internet: I’ve more »

Stacking the Shelves is hosted at Tynga’s Reviews Hello! I hope you all had a good week!  Mine was great.  My husband got promoted and I guess he gets the “official” call on Monday about it.  He also finally got his license squared away so new car next week!  And besides those awesome things, I’ve just been feeling good.  I was feeling stressed and swamped by blogging (I’ve taken on a LOT of projects since I came to Great Imaginations because I feel like I have a bigger, more interactive more »
