Friday Linkups! They Came to Baghdad
This Friday I'm participating in Book Blogger Hop hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings hosted by Rose City Reader and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.
First up is the Book Blogger Hop question:
"Do you prefer Nook, Kindle, other e-reader or paper book?"
My Answer: This is actually something I've been thinking about lately. I really can't stand cookbooks in e-book form. I like having the actual book to flip through and tab and read from. It just isn't the same in Kindle form. I do a lot of my reading on my Kindle Paperwhite (which I love) partly because I read a lot of review books and also because it's just convenient just to carry that around and not multiple books but I always have at least 1 or 2 paper books going as well because there are situations that I don't want to take my Kindle into. I think for the most part paper books and Kindle books are pretty interchangeable for me so I don't really have a strong preference. I don't see myself switching exclusively to one or the other anytime soon though.
"Captain Crosbie came out of the bank with the pleased air of one who has cashed a cheque and has discovered that there is just a little more in his account than he thought there was."
And from page 56 of my falling apart 1980 edition:
"There was something of a calculated sensationalism about the late traveller. He wore a kind of dark grey travelling cloak with a capacious hood at the back. On his head was what was in essence a wide sombrero, but in light grey. He had silver grey curling hair, worn rather long, and a beautiful silver grey moustache curling up at the ends. The effect was that of a handsome stage bandit. Victoria, who disliked theatrical men who posed, looked at him with disapproval."
So what do you think? Interested? Intrigued? or bored? What do you prefer to read on?
