I Have a Confession

I have a confession to make. I realise this is going to be disappointing for many of you and that some of you may even decide to stop following this blog but so be it: I have been converted to ebooks. Yes, I know what I said but it’s happened. The gateway drug, so to speak, was getting a Google play voucher for my birthday and downloading a couple of audio books. But I found them much too slow so I checked out a few cheap ebooks and before I knew it, I was hooked. In the last few weeks I’ve got through nearly a book a day and I’m currently working my way through everything Nicci French ever wrote.

So there you are. Don’t believe a word I say.

    1. It’s Google play books. I don’t know if it is faster, it’s just that I have more time at the moment

  1. Can you not change the speed of the audio books? (I like being able to speed up Youtube videos to rattle through something quicker). I have a Sony eReader, a Kindle Fire and regular paper books, I find there’s merit in each format and I employ them in different situations.

  2. I guess you might be able to. OH listens to YouTube videos speeded up but I can’t concentrate on them

    1. It depends on the channel, speaker, and content. Sometimes 1.25 is enough, other times 1.5 works. Thankfully the process doesn’t turn them into chipmunks.

  3. I’ve had a Kindle for some years. Got it in order to create a Kindle version of a book but have read lots of things on it since. The Faded Page site has thousands of out-of-copyright digitised books in most formats. Currently reading The Road to Wigan Pier.

  4. Since I got the Amazon Fire Tablet, I have downloaded many cheap and free books onto it. Only read about 30% of them so far, but the space saved by not having the paperback/hardback versions is most welcome in a small house.
    Best wishes, Pete.
