Cuddling up with a Good Book
I was thinking about reading and why it was so hard for me to get through the Public Domain and easier to read Rainbows End. Granted, these two books have very different plotlines. But I think one reason is the way that they are read. I have a PDF file of the Public Domain saved to my computer because I don't have a iphone or kendle. But I can carry around Vernor Vinge's book where ever I go. If I head out to work or go to a resturant I can bring my bound book with me. It is harder with a computer. I don't like sitting at my computer staring at its screen to read a book. It is a different way to read and one that is not as fulfilling as reading an actual physical book. I just like cuddling up with a good book; it is just more comfortable that way.
