portable ebook reader

Making the transition from paper to digital is a challenge but also another psychological episode of letting go. We had to transition our music from vinyl to tape to cd’s and now onto an mp3 player. My music collection is fairly large and difficult to imagine all of it can be placed on a small digital hand held device. Todays technology is already at a level that can convert libraries of books to digital storage. Can we adjust to not having a book in our hand or a newspaper to read and pages to struggle with? Schools will be totally different but may benefit in reduced expenditures for books. How do we approach a book signing with no books? I’ve often seen a visible book being carried become a conversation topic and a way to break the ice when you want to meet someone. We’ll have to become a little more creative in opening statements commonly referred to as pick up lines.

There are many positive sides to using a portable ebook reader. Downloading books, papers and magazines will greatly reduce the need for paper, printing inks, shipping, storage and shelf space in stores, and save you a trip to the store. So using the ebook device also reduces fuel consumption, raw materials like trees, plastic and other packaging and becomes a product that proudly fits into the Going Green concept. The kindle ebook reader developed by Amazon.com is highly advanced and the next step in moving the world to paperless reading. Click here to see the many features and read the reviews.
