Paper to Kindle {Paperwhite} & Cinder Book Review

Kindle VS Books
Kindle or book or kindle? I've have seen one to many Kindle VS Real Book videos on Youtube. I was still on the fence till about a month ago. 

It all started when I wanted to clean up my life and home a bit from "stuff". The whole minimalism lifestyle {I have to admit I am not so good at it}. I donated 95% of my books. I basically cleaned out my bookshelf. I kept only my favorites and the rest I drove down to the local library and a few to my good friend. 

Before we get to my first e-book I would like to share that I absolutely love my Kindle. I bought the Kindle Paperwhite. I love the fact that it is easy on the eyes. I had no problem reading in a pitch black room seeing that we have load shedding {Don't know what load shedding is? Go read What is load shedding?} quite frequently these days I was glad to have this little companion. It's compact, lightweight and just so damn easy to use. Ok, enough about the Kindle.

I bought Cinder by Marissa Meyer as my first e-book ever. I loved every single (screen) page of it. I powered through the book. I was surprised how fast I read it. 

I can never give an awesome description as the author usually does, so if you want to know what it's all about go check out this Goodreads summary I loved the characters and the setting. The story is so intriguing and you cannot help to turn the page. "Just one more page". The plot twists kept everything moving. Loved it.Worth a solid 4 stars. I am looking forward to Scarlet.

I can safely say that I am now a digital reader. I am embarking on endless digital possibilities.  I won't go entirely digital. I will always have a special place for paper; I mean the smell and feel of a new book and the beautiful covers, who does not like that? I will always buy books too!

What have you been reading lately and are you a digital of paper reader?

Speak to you soon...or sooner!
