Used to think e-book can never beat paper book.
I was so wrong!
I bought my kindle on the third day of its launch in Japan.
(I don’t usually buy anything on the first day, but can not wait long enough to make a well-informed purchase either)
Kindle changed my reading experience.
Now I read faster and more books. I noticed my boot-up time (time required to be in the zone, of reading) is much faster.
I could lose myself in my reading, just like described in Amazon’s homepage, quote:
Lose Yourself in Your Reading
The most elegant feature of a physical book is that it disappears while you’re reading. Immersed in the author’s world and ideas, you don’t notice a book’s glue, the stitching, or ink. Our top design objective was to make Kindle disappear—just like a physical book—so you can get lost in your reading, not the technology.”
Yup, kindle disappears… leaving me and the author.
Hoping to get Nook as well, but for a while, Kindle is the only choice in Japan.
I only wish there would be (much) more book available in kindle format.
And no regional restriction, please!
