Yesterday I did something I haven't done in a very long time. I started reading an old fashioned style book. By "old fashioned" I mean a book that's made of paper and ink. Makes me feel like I'm back in the stone ages! ;)
Ever since I got my iPAQ hx4705 I declared that I would only read books in ebook form. However, there was one book for which I'd said I'd make an exception - Harry Potter 6. The reasons for the exception are:
(i) Peter and I have HP1-5 in old style books and it would be nice to continue the collection;HP6 is a reasonably long book (over 600 pages) and it felt weird to be holding a physical book again. I'd definitely never go back to this form long term. In fact, lack of availability in ebook form would now pretty much be a reason for me to veto a book altogether!
(ii) Peter also wants to read HP6 and is not yet convinced by ebooks; and
(iii) HP6 is not available in ebook form.
Anyway, I'm now one chapter into HP6 and I'm already enjoying it more than HP5. I wasn't a huge fan of HP5. It definitely ranks bottom of my HP preference list.
