Why I prefer electronic books
Wow, the print is smaller than I'm used to. If it were an e-book, I could make the print larger.
It's so heavy, and both hands are required to hold it.
If I want to check out a real library book, I have to actually go to the library. With the Ipad, I don't even have to leave my easy chair to browse the library offerings and check out books.
With an e-book, if there's a word I can't understand, I rest my finger on the word and the definition is there instantly. Although since this one is a book by Waylon Jennings, maybe there aren't many big words. Not that he was stupid, but he was a down-home, hillbilly type. I never had any trouble understanding his songs.
It must be pretty good; at least it's holding Cliff's interest. I guess I'll dig out my magnifying glass and read it after he's done with it. Meanwhile, I'm reading a book on the Ipad, where I can make the print as big as I want.
