I'm reading a book at the moment. Nothing particularly unusual about that as I read a great deal. But on this occasion, I'm actually reading a book rather than my Kindle. I've been using a Kindle for about 4 1/2 years and when I first started on it, I found the experience a little strange. I missed the feel of a book in my hands and the turning of the pages. Now however as it's been about a year since I reverted to a book, I'm finding the loss of my Kindle to be equally difficult. I miss the ease of the device, and the lightness of it. If I'm outside and the wind blows I don't have to fight the pages. But the biggest downside of all is the lack of an instant dictionary. Whereas on the Kindle, if I want to look up a word, it's immediate. Now I have to go to a dictionary, which means I probably don't! I'm anxious to get back to a more modern read!
