Books are a Joy
I had a very interesting discussion today about eBooks, Kindle devices, iPads and physical books. I am sure that these kind of discussions are going on all over the world. The end result was that we all agreed that reading was life-changing and enjoyable no matter what the delivery mechanism was. I love eBooks when travelling, which I do as part of my profession, as they weigh nothing and are very portable. I remember once when I went to Bangkok on business and had 20 physical books with me, that the Customs official asked me whether I was thinking of starting a library in Thailand. That was before the advent of the eBook where I literally do have a library on my iPhone.
