When it comes to reading, I have piles of books. Books in boxes, books on shelves, books in baskets around the house, in the bathroom and my nightstand is piled high. I read several things at once, including my online reading. I happen to be a fast reader so I feel comfortable with this but when I think of the number of trees sacrificed for my stacks of enjoyments, knowledge and pleasure, I feel guilty. I love hardcover books though and completely understand that there’s just nothing like the feel, smell or touch of a book. A book lover, I guess you can call me.
Recently I’ve written about , where you can buy books online. You download the books to your laptop or desktop and read from there. I’m reading several right now (surprise) and it’s convenient and makes me feel good knowing I’m saving some trees and avoiding adding one more book to my stack. I get to download the book up to five times and the cost is very inexpensive with continual deals. I think it’s a great concept and with my degree online from the University of Phoenix, I’m accustomed to doing this anyhow.
