Kindle or ‘real-life-in-your-hands-book’

Yes, kindle and e-readers of all kinds have been nothing short of a Reading Revolution. Yes, I heard what I just said. A REVOLUTION!

Hundreds of books on one little digital tablet! Surely this is one of the greatest inventions for all you book lovers out there.

Except, in a lot of cases, it’s not.

The feel of a book in your hands (especially those 700+ page epics); the smell of the new pages; the perfect smoothness and matte finish of a straight-off-the-shelf book. I don’t think there is anything better.

And so, in saying that, I am coming close to having all of my hard copies of ‘Fastian’ gone. I have roughly twenty of them left and they need a good home! I will post them to anyone wishing to purchase one. And why wouldn’t you want one? Only 250 were printed and if (when) one day, global success comes my way, you will be in the possession of something very rare indeed.

My email is coshure96@gmail.com or you can tweet me @jayfinn32 for any details or questions. Go on, what’s the worst that could happen?unnamed

  1. There would be places for either kind of book.

  2. I hope people read with Kindles too though , as I have some writings in that format too.

  3. Kindles are great! One can compartmentalize books and have so much shelf space in their home… but… I’ve loved books since Mathair first handed me one when I was two. I love the way they smell, feel, the sound of the pages, the sturdiness, the connection with something archaic that’s been around for hundreds of years, it’s all just so romantic to me. It’ll be a sad day should they ever become obsolete. Hope that never happens. On a lighter note, hope you have a great weekend, Jay and Happy Valentine’s day. 🙂

  4. I have a library at home ( Converted room ) and love real books but when i travel or go on holiday, you can’t beat an E-reader. P.s, do you have any hard copies left? and how much are they
