Hello and welcome to day 11 of the Spanking A-Z Challenge!
June 12th - K is for Kindle
When I first heard about Kindles, and other ereaders, I had no interest in owning one. I was perfectly happy with my print books and didn't think I'd enjoy reading an entire book off a device with a screen. I liked holding a real book in my hands, smelling it, turning the pages, etc. My husband kept asking me if I wanted one and I kept firmly saying no. Then about three Mother's Days ago, my husband got me a Kindle anyway. I opened the package and tried to do a good job acting excited about my present, and he started laughing at me and said he knew I didn't like it, but he was pretty sure I would eventually.
He was right. I soon discovered my reading options were much broader on a Kindle. I found ebook authors I'd never heard of who didn't have books in physical book stores. I found spanking stories...lots of spanking stories. It was nice not to have to read those off my laptop anymore.
Once I read a few short stories on Kindle, I started thinking that maybe I'd try to write one. I'd already been working on a full length sci fi novel (no, this one has never been published), but learning there was a market for short stories and novellas was pretty exciting and changed my whole outlook on getting published.
The moral of this story is always be open to trying new things. Oh, and always listen to your husband. LOL.
Was it difficult for you to switch to using an ereader? Or do you still prefer paperback books?
