After I received my Kindle, I swore I would get rid of the real books I owned and I wouldn’t buy any more.
Anytime I swear that I’m not going to do something, I end up doing just that. I have some books I can’t bear to part with and others that I own despite having the option of buying them electronically.
I was putting away my nonacademic books recently, and I realized what an eclectic collection I have. Most of these books are unread, but that’s because I’m currently stuck in 100 Years of Solitude which is not an easy read.
