to kindle or not to kindle?
My mom has been bugging me for weeks to do another inventory of the books I want to give to a nearby school. She is planning to have our house repainted and she wants to clear away as much clutter from our storage room as possible. I finally obliged a while ago and came up with 3 large bags and 1 big box full of books to give (see picture). It was not an easy thing for me to do but I guess I have to do it regularly if I don’t want to have our house turn into one big storage facility.
Looking at the stacks of books I will be giving away this time made me consider having a Kindle. I already thought of getting one months ago but back then the thrill of going to a bookstore and browsing its shelves made me stick to the printed versions. But right now I’m seriously considering a Kindle once again. Having one means not having to contend with the accumulation of books in our house, saving paper (which hopefully will contribute to saving trees), and having a new gadget to play with (I confess, the last reason is such a temptress).
