We all love to read. It’s an escape to another world with adventure and heartbreak, passion and new beginnings. With millions of stories, there are endless possibilities. And if you’re a writer like I am you know that reading is one of the best ways to expand your horizons, build on your massive vocabulary *cough* and improve your writing.
I do most of my reading online and what better way than to use an e-reader to do it? I still love that old paperback smell of a real book but I save that indulgence for nighttime when I’m in bed so my sleep isn’t adversely affected. Maybe if I had an e-reader I could avoid that. What do you think?
And I want to share my love of reading in a more tangible way with my son now that he’s in kindergarten. We read stories together but there is a difference between that and modeling reading for pleasure on my own. If he is to develop a lifetime love of reading then I best be setting a good example. It’s one thing to talk about it but it’s entirely another to do it.
That’s one of the reasons why I loved this contest with Kobo. We both love technology and using an e-book could be just the ticket. And there’s an amazing trip to South America to be won.
