Ebooks are a (relatively) new thing to me, because I have spent most of my life reading books but only really started loving ebooks last year. Specifically, ebooks from the library. Thank you, Overdrive and Borrowbox! I usually use my iPad for reading my borrowed ebooks because my library hasn’t got in on the whole “omg you can make it possible for them to borrow on their Kindle” thing yet.
Unfortunately, my old iPad has decided to just… Fizzle out. :( Bereft of my tablet, I wondered what device I could use for reading my borrowed ebooks. My phone, of course! I already listen to my audiobooks on it, so why not ebooks?
So, how did the change go?
- The screen felt small, at first.
After getting used to the real estate of the tablet’s screen, the phone’s screen felt small. I thought it would lead to eyestrain or something. Oh but Overdrive allows you to change your text, silly Ana!
- It was super easy to read in bed.
My iPad is one of the old ones, so it’s a little weighty. Reading in bed usually requires lying on my side, with the iPad also propped up on its side. My phone fits right in my hand, and it’s just a lot easier to handle.
- It was also super easy to get carried away reading.
The easy access lets me just get lost in the book! I have ended up sleeping waaaaay later than I intended. :| Oops!
So, after some hesitation, I actually really love reading books on my phone now! :D
What about you, dear reader?
Do you read books on your phone too? What gadgets do you use to read your ebooks?
