I never would have guessed I’d be writing this, but I’m beginning to prefer reading from my iPhone over reading a paper book. For the past six months or so, I’ve done all my devotional Bible reading from the YouVersion Bible App, and I just finished reading my second book on the iPhone Kindle App (BTW, it was Tribes by Seth Godin – an amazing little book on leadership).
I think I like it so much because:
- I’ve always got my book with me since it’s on my phone
- the backlight is really nice – I can easily read in the dark
- I can have a new book on my phone within minutes of placing my order in the Amazon Kindle store
- It’s more eco-friendly
- I could be wrong, but it seems like there is less strain on my eyes
Makes me think that there will probably be a day soon when everybody does most of their reading on a handheld device.
