With a lot of print screen commands and some careful resizing, I am able to present to you the books I read in 2015 – information and stats courtesy of Goodreads.
My total came in at 82, way above my goal of 52. And, almost all of them were read on my Kindle. I prefer the Kindle because it’s lightweight, it goes easily in my purse, I can read outside in the sunshine, I can read in bed without the light on, and (although I can’t prove this scientifically) I swear I read faster. I very rarely buy books for the Kindle, I get them through Overdrive at the library.
I have been following a thread on Facebook where people were debating electronic devices vs. printed books and someone said they prefer a book because there is magic in holding a book. While I love books and I can (sort of) understand that mentality, I truly believe that the magic, my friends, comes from the words you read not from the way you read them. But it’s all good because what really matters to this librarian is that people are reading.
