That is what it's like … Continue reading I need to stop buying books…

I used to bash them hard because I love physical books and the way that they look on shelves and such, there is something very therapeutic about just flicking through pages. I also worried that purchasing a kindle and buying e-books … Continue reading My feelings about Kindle E-readers.
