To Kindle or not to Kindle?

Five reasons why I want a Kindle

  1. My luggage won’t be overweight from cramming too many books into it when I travel
  2. I won’t break my shoulder with my hand luggage, into which I’ve shoved all the book so that my bags aren’t overweight
  3. Sadly enough, downloaded books are a whole lot cheaper than real ones. With the amount of reading I do, that’s a big attraction
  4. I won’t squash the pages of a Kindle when I shove it into my handbag/down the side of the sofa/when I fall asleep on it late at night
  5. I will look like a hip middle-aged techno-whizz

Five reasons why I don’t want a Kindle

  1. How could an electronic gadget replace the feel of paper pages?
  2. It won’t have that clean, woodchip smell that a new book has
  3. A Kindle won’t feel like a friend when I hold it
  4. I can’t have a pile of Kindles next to my bed
  5. Books have existed for millenia – will Kindles?
