I have been going back and forth about whether or not to write this blog. Then, once I decided I would write it, I chickened out about posting it a little bit. Not because I care if I piss people off, but because I don’t want to seem… pretentious? Full of it? I don’t know.
I saw that someone did this tag and I thought “Hey, I want to do that.” So I’m doing it, regardless of whether I’m tagged or not.
eBooks got pretty big a few years ago, and now everyone is cashing in their 2 cents about whether the physical or digital book is better. Some swear by the ease and speed of eBooks, while some can’t lose the spark of nostalgia and joy they get from holding a story in their hand. Clearly you haven’t read enough blogs just like this one, so here’s my take on the whole thing.
To read piles are a fluid, ever changing thing. New, exciting books come out, pushing the books you’ve been meaning to read for ages farther and farther down the list. I’ve made a point this March to get a good mix of books I’ve had forever and need to read, books I’ve borrowed from the library, fiction and nonfiction, different types of writers (different nationalities, women, etc), and world literature rather than sticking with the my go-to American/UK types.
