The Dark Side

I know reading books on hand-held devices such as Kindle or Apple’s many alternatives is a convenient and, to some, cool thing to do, but I’ve always preferred the feel of a good paperback. I have read electronic versions of my favourite novels, I’ve even enjoyed the process. It’s just something I can’t quite put my finger on (or perhaps that’s exactly it), some part of me that is happiest between the pages of a well-worn book.

Of course, there are a number of readers who would disagree – those who prefer to lay back with a miniature screen and drift away into another land. So, with this in mind, I have finally published Sins of the Father in electronic format. It should be available on Kindle over the next few days, and, if I can figure it out, iBook.

Thanks, as always, for reading.

  1. I agree with you about the feel of a paperback. I’ve was given a Kindle for Christmas and find it is a different experience somehow. My best guess so far is linked to how I read. I tend to read fairly quickly but will also flick back to a previous page if I feel I’ve missed something. Its a bit less intuitive with an electronic page.

    However, what I do like is that I can read 3 or 4 books at the same time, depending on my mood, all on the same device.

    And I love a good gadget too!

    1. I’ve given it a little thought myself. Personally, it could have something to do with the way my brain works. Though I gravitate between learning styles, I favour a kinaesthetic approach. I’m also a tactile person in general so it’s a safe bet that I like to work with textures and things more concrete than glass and plastic – not that I don’t like a good piece of technology. The light can hurt my eyes too after a prolonged period of time, despite adjusting the settings. But like I said, I’m somewhat reformed and agree whole heartedly about the beauty of reading a few books at the same time with the flick of a finger!

      Thanks for your comments.
