Another book-hoarder after our own book-hoarding hearts, and I SO GET THIS, because I am ALSO having to re-collect some of my books. I explain my issue after her confession.
Alisa has her own confession for us. How well can you relate?
“I’ve been following your blog for several years, but have never chimed in before now. Have your heard the sayings “She who dies with the most ______ wins?” Usually if applies to fabric for quilters, yarn for knitters, etc. Why not “She who dies with the most ebooks wins!”?
I was a hard back die hard until I was going on a vacation to Mexico and needed to lighten my load. One ereader is MUCH lighter than 6 hardback books! Hence, my first Nook (1st edition) purchase. Now, I have 2 nooks with over 2200 books and a Kindle Paperwhite with over 700 books (in 2 years!). I can’t resist a good sale/price drop.
My quirk is that I want all of my books by a particular author on either the Nook or the Kindle. That way I always have their entire collection with me. Especially with a series. This is a problem if a book goes exclusive to Kindle for months and the rest of my books were on nook. It makes me wait! Patience is generally not one of my virtues.
Love the “favorite lists”. I have found some new authors I really love from those lists.
So many books and never enough time. . .”
Maryse: I love this, Alisa!!! And I totally get your quirk. I had a Sony ereader back in the day, and it’s out of commission now, so all of those books I had on there… *poof* gone. I’ve stuck to Kindle ever since. I shall post your quirk next week, so others can commiserate with you. SO COOL!!! *hug*
Oh Alisa… you’re yet another reader after my own heart!! And I too (in my beginning ebook stages) had books scattered between Nook, Kindle AND SONY EREADER!!! <— Do those even exist anymore? No?
Well, that was my VERY FIRST ebook reader and I loved it, and I had SO many books on it, but then I found the wonders of Nook and Kindle… and then mostly Kindle, and my Sony ereader went by the wayside. I lost all of the books I had on that one. And so I’m re-collecting, too.
