Easter Bunny Goes Digital?
What would you rather find in your basket tomorrow morning? A print book or a gift card for an eBook? My kids (and over half of them are grown) would say neither…they would say CANDY! As well it should be, but as for me, I would agree with them that candy is necessary but a print book would be very welcome too! We have had this conversation in our family many times. We have a lot of books in our house, in fact, we have a room that is our library. We also have a lot of ways to read digital text. Four Kindles, two tablets, several computers and sometimes we read on our smartphones even. There are so many different ways to read nowadays. With low vision being an issue in our family, we turn to reading text digitally often because it is so easy to enlarge the text. I love holding a print book in my hands. I like the way it feels and the way it smells. I know that is dorky but I admit it. Many times, though, I will begin reading a print book but it hurts my eyes and so I go and download the digital format to finish it. I still like the idea of owning the print copy though. The best way to explain it is: It is a lot like having a picture of a family member hanging on my wall. It just makes me happy. How about you? Print or digital?
Happy Easter everyone! May you enjoy this blessed time to spend with your family and to celebrate our new birth through Jesus Christ. We always say that Christmas is Jesus’ birthday; well Easter is everybody’s birthday!
