Don’t have a Kindle but want to read Ignoring Gravity as an ebook? No problem, just download the free app for computer, tablet [iPad and Android] or mobile. Never read an e-book, not sure if it’s for you? I read both paperbooks and e-books, my simple rule is if it is a book by a favourite author, one I know I will want to re-read and cherish in the future, I buy the paper version. If it’s an author new to me, a genre I’m unfamiliar with, or a book bought simply for ‘easy reading’, I buy the e-book.The advantages of e-books are:-
E-books are cheaper to buy and don’t waste paper.
Turn the page by tapping the screen.
Change the typesize to suit your eyesight.
Easy-to-read screen in direct sunlight, excellent for summer holiday reading.
Read in bed at night with Kindle’s low-level light which doesn’t disturb your other half.
Take as many books as you want on holiday, on your Kindle – no worries about luggage allowance.
Open your Kindle at exactly the place you stopped reading.
Buy your Kindle book at Amazon, turn your Kindle to the wi-fi setting and the book magically appears in an instant.
All your e-books are archived in your own Kindle Library at Amazon.
Use the chapter index to click straight to a particular place in the book.
Search the book for keywords.
The cheap 99p deals which enable you to discover new authors and explore new genres.
The disadvantages of e-books:-
Remembering to re-charge – there’s nothing more annoying than reaching a gripping bit of the book then getting the ‘low battery’ warning.
You can’t share them around your friends.
Not owning the physical book. As Joanna Trollope said, e-books are really like borrowing a book rather than owning it.
