I have yet to invest in one of these new-fangled(ish) electronic reading devices. The thing, is, I've never been able to decide whether they're a GOOD THING or a STEP IN THE WRONG DIRECTION!
I know that Kindle is a boon in one way to us writers as we can now publish for Kindle in the absence of a 'paper' publishing contract, but I was wondering whether it's going to be the death of books as some suggest. I certainly don't want to play a part in the death of books as I love everything about having a 'proper' copy of a book and then there's all the joy to be experienced in the process of lending it out and sharing the love. Not quite the same with a Kindle. And, of course, I do one day hope to have a novel out in paperback myself!
What do you think? I know a lot of writers who have Kindles and I'm really tempted to put one on my Christmas list, especially as they're now £90.
I have also been telling myself that you can't halt 'progress' and that millions will be buying Kindles even if I don't, so will it really make any difference?
I'd love to hear other people's thoughts on this subject! (Please forgive me if I don't reply to your comment as Blogger has taken against me and won't let me comment on my own blog for some reason!)
