'All the reading she had done had given her a view of life they had never seen' - Matilda, Roald Dahl

Right so yes I AM about to blog about a kindle paperwhite and you're probably thinking....yeah don;t care. But here me out, it's a snazzy new kindle!!

So I treated myself to a new unnecessary  necessary toy, a Kindle Paperwhite! I know there's often a loooot of debate on tablets over real life books. Now don't get me wrong, I love a good paper book. When I was little my mum used to take me to Starbucks in Borders and there was nothing that could beat that overwhelmingly lovely smell of fresh unread books. However, with life on the go and with Amazon's amazingly cheap digital books, I have sold my soul to Kindle. Books are cheaper, I can read as many as possible and not have to spend a fortune or keep ordering or going out and buying books. I know, I know all the pro real book people will be shaming me GoT style!

This is in no way my first Kindle. My lovely parents bought me a Kindle Fire for Christmas in my second year on university to help me with my studies. I definitely recommend Kindle Fires to students as a cheap alternative tablet. I was definitely less likely to fall asleep studying off a Kindle Fire than a dusty old book from the library... And let's not even talk about those hideously long journal articles you had to read.... boring! (sorry to anyone who has ever written one or writes them for a career).

Now I am in no way an iterlectual human being and I am not going to declare that I read 'The Classics' and start discussing the pros and cons of Heathcliff and Cathy's gloomy relationship. I will be honest and say I am aaaaaall about the trash chick flicks. I mean, not complete trash to be fair, but the Bridget Jones, Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic chick lit trash. Judge me....

 I bought myself a new Kindle as I seriously need to get back into reading! I don't know about you but reading helps clear my mind plus there is no greater feeling than getting to stuck into a book you can't draw yourself away from and when you finish it, you feel emotionally withdrawn. Like fo real we just got deep. I bought an iPad at Christmas to help me with blogging and to be on the go more instead of lugging a laptop about and found myself heavily neglecting my Kindle Fire first world problems and no longer reading as much as I used to. My solution was to sell my Kindle Fire and buy a simple Kindle Paperwhite. 

It's now bye bye lying back and dropping an iPad on my face and hello easy reading! 

It really is a lovely and easy way of getting back into reading. As I say, Kindle offers cheap deals so you can get lost in all the trashy chick flicks you want! Plus it's easy to hold, the battery lasts forever and you have access to Kindle's book store, what more could you need!!

So excuse me whilst I download some trashy romance novels (erm and no fifty shades please!) whilst you answer the me the biigest debate that divides Great Britain....Do you prefer books or tablets? GO GO GO!


  1. As an English Graduate I was so against Kindles literally always thought physical books were the only good option, then for travelling abroad my boyfriend bought my a kindle so I didn't have to stack my backpack with novels and it's the BEST THING EVER. The paper white looks so cool! xxx
