In My Mailbox (16th April 2012)
In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren and is a weekly meme to show what books you have accumulated during the week.
This week I went on a bit of an e-book spree as I have recently discovered the 'Kindle for PC' app available at Amazon which I downloaded onto my laptop. I've been debating whether to get a kindle or other e-reader for a while now and keep having big emotional discussions with myself due to the fact that I don't think you can beat the touch, feel and smell of reading an actual book. I also have a bit of a disorder where I just love to stand and stare at my super full bookshelves which is obviously something that I couldn't do with an e-reader. Maybe if someone just bought me one as a present (hint, hint hubby!) I wouldn't have to fight with myself about it anymore.......
Anyway, here is what I acquired this week (click on the covers to go to Goodreads):
I have found that for some reason my little 13 month old refuses to let me hold a book in my hands to read it even when he's happy playing on his own but he doesn't mind me having my laptop out and reading on that. He went through a very sick few days last week where I couldn't put him down for more than 2 minutes or he'd start screaming so my Kindle for PC app on my laptop was my lifesaver while I was trapped holding him on the lounge for a week straight until he started feeling better.
Who knows. Maybe there is room in my life for an e-reader after all?
So, has anyone read any of the above books and liked/disliked them?
