What is this thing sitting in front of me that is made with actual paper and has words made of ink? Does.not.compute. It LOOKS like a book, but I'm forced to actually move my entire hand to turn the page. I'm too busy and important for this. And it's TOTALLY unacceptable that I have to actually use something to keep my place! It's not like there's some sort of invention that would mark the place in your book. Also, there is only one story contained within the pages and there is no interactive dictionary. This is complete and utter nonsense. What in the holy hell am I supposed to do with this thing?!
Yes people... I've only owned Aldeux for a little over a year now. By the way, his birthday was Christmas Day (much like Jesus'... I doubt that is mere coincidence). However, he didn't get so much as an e-card. You're all on my shitlist. But I digress... my point is that I've only had an e-reader for a year now, and it's actually difficult for me to read a regular, physical book now. How did that happen? It was only a little over a year ago that I was smugly telling people that you're not a true literature buff if you stoop to using an e-reader. Blah, blah, blah, shitcakes... was I wrong?!
And now... because J.K. Rowling wants to ruin my life and keeps putting off the public debut of Pottermore (and with it, the release of the e-version of the Harry Potter series), I'm forced to abandon Aldeux for a bit and read *GASP* an actual paperback. This doesn't feel right... I feel dirty. And my heart breaks for Aldeux... I hope he's not feeling lonely. Husband assured me that Aldeux will be fine and probably needs a little break... and I don't want to end up having to purchase an "Altrois". But I miss him so badly, it hurts. ::pours some Butterbeer out for my homey::
If you're an e-reader, do you have a difficult time when you need to read a regular book?
