The Great Debate: Books vs kindle

I have seen a few article and heard massive debates on which is better. This article is the most recent one i have seen and thought i would share my take on it.

Getting hooked…..

Do you get hooked on one topic?

I wrote a post on book pet peeves and fell down the rabbit hole. I get hooked on one topic and having a blog about a couple of topics i don’t want to spend a week blogging about just books. I just keep finding all these great things which inspire me to blog about them or Tags to join in on, all to do with books. I could have 5+ posts just related to books.

Does anyone else have this problem? 

Luckily i can schedule these posts to publish in the coming weeks. So, this week you are not overwhelmed by books and wonder what on earth was going on here.
