The written word is a beautiful thing. I love it in all its forms, though I still prefer a good, old-fashioned book. I used to avoid buying any non-fiction books on my Kindle, but then I relented and was excited to see that all my notes were safely tucked away on the Kindle site. What a lovely surprise! (And thanks to computer guru Robin Lee Hatcher for helping me figure it out!) I thought I had to open the book on the Kindle and search for them.
I'm currently reading "Mrs. Dalloway" by Virginia Woolf on my Kindle, and I have to say, I'm going to buy the book form. While I'm reading slowly and savoring each word of it, there's something about the book that begs to be read in hard copy format. If you have a reader, do you still do both?
I feel the same about a beach read, I suppose -- that it's best enjoyed with sand in the pages. And if you're looking for one this summer, I hope you'll leave a comment to win a copy of "Perfectly Ridiculous" -- the last episode in Daisy Crispin's adventures in high school. Don't feel you need to be in high school to read it, Daisy heads to Buenos Aires, Argentina so if you can't get away this summer, follow Daisy for your own break!
