When it comes to book lists, itâ€™s no secret that you, our power readers, love to keep things organized online using sites like Shelfari and Good Reads. Hearing about your experiences with such tools has motivated me to get organized as far as my wish list goes, but now my want-to-read list is starting to look ominous when I compare it to my tiny apartment, that has little space for my library-sized aspirations. Next monthâ€™s book club pick is Room, by Emma Donague (have you read it?) and Iâ€™m toying with the idea of taking the plunge and sealing the deal on an e-reader. I donâ€™t fancy myself as the kind of gal who needs the newest, hottest gadget, and in fact, really value the feel of a worn book in my hand, but Iâ€™m starting to be swayed. In addition to saving space in my apartment, e-books also tend to be cheaper than the real deal, and can be read on gadgets, like smart phones, that donâ€™t require the purchase of an actual e-reader at all. If do cross over, I plan on still supporting my local independent bookshop for my favorite reads, but Iâ€™d love to hear from you: Do you use an e-reader, or some other tool to get your reading in?
