For those of you that follow this blog for many years, you might remember an old post about buying an ebook reader. That was back in 2012, and a lot of things have changed since then. However, my appreciation for that little device is not among the things that did change, and I am still a proud owner of an ebook reader. Even though my originally device was stolen, I did buy a second one, and currently is one of my most beloved pieces of technology (much more beloved than my smartphone).
As the time of the year dictates, I am compiling a list of interesting books I read in the past 12 months. How do I define interesting? I consider books interesting if they somehow gave me either a new perspective or some nice moments of relaxation. I separated the recommendations based on categories, so that it is easier to follow, and wrote a short explanation of why I found each book worth sharing.
After almost 2 years of internal fight between my love for book and my love for technology, the scale finally turned on the other side and I decided that it’s time to turn a page in my reading habits: I bought an ebook reader!
I know that some of you might think of me as another book hater, who doesn’t appreciate the smell of old paper and the great feeling at the sound of turning pages, but there are good reasons behind such a choice.
Recently I found out about a very nice service for keeping track of the books that you have read, while at the same time giving ratings, reviews and seeing what other people think about the books available out there. The service is called GoodReads and you can create an account for free. You can see my public profile here: www.goodreads.com/tassos Feel free to add me as a friend if you join the service.
