|Some of my upcoming reading after finishing up next month.|
Right now I have one plan: reading.
If you look at my blog's sidebar, you can see some of the reading challenges I've chosen to engage in this year. I've not really applied any time to these yet, but I don't think I'm down and out yet.
I'm an English teacher, so it's no big surprise that I like reading and collect books. The ones listed above are only a few of the ones that are in my I have yet to read. I purchase most of the books I read because part of what I love about books is owning them. I do visit the library, but I'm a slow, and sometimes distracted, reader which means that having a brief time to interact with a book from the library really limits my enjoyment.
My wife keeps asking me if I'd be interested in a Kindle, Nook or other e-reader, and I'm not really interested yet. I really enjoy the physical interaction with the text on a page that I turn, not scroll. I don't really enjoy the fact that most of the text books in this program have been in a digital format, but I see the value. I do think that I might be persuaded to try e-books on an iPad because if I don't like the experience, I can still use the iPad for other uses. With a dedicated e-reader, if I don't like it, then there's not much I can do with it.
So after my adventure in EMDT ends in April, you can find me with a book, either in a chair by a window or in a hammock in my back yard.
What are you looking forward to after we end our time in EMDT? And what are your thoughts on e-books versus physical books?
