Ocean County Beach Reads
Do you seem to get a lot more reading done at this time of year? There's something so nice about sitting on the deck or on the beach with a book. Do you have a stack of books ready to go into your suitcase or beachbag? Or have you converted to an e-reader?
I'll admit I was a late adopter, getting my first Kindle about 6 years after everyone else seemed to get theirs. I actually love it for a few reasons. 1) It's lightweight and portable. There's nothing bulky to carry around. 2) It gives me access to several different books so I can read what suits my mood at any given time. 3) It provides instant gratification. I'll always feel grateful for the instant download I was able to do during a winter storm. With the touch of a few buttons, I was able to get the book I wanted to read without having to drive in the snow.
But as I get set to sit in the sand this weekend, I don't think I want to read from an e-reader. There's something about putting that technology on the beach that I haven't gotten accustomed to yet. Reading from one of those devices makes perfect sense. It's practical. But I like the way a book feels in my hand so I'm going to stay "old school" this summer.
Have you converted to using a Kindle or other tablet for your beach reading?
