Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. This week's BTT . . . With the advent (and growing popularity) of eBooks, I’m seeing more and more articles about how much “better” they can be, because they have the option to be interactive … videos, music, glossaries … all sorts of little extra goodies to help “enhance” your reading experience, rather like listening to the Director’s commentary on a DVD of your favorite movie. How do you feel about that possibility? Does it excite you in a cutting-edge kind of way? Or does it chill you to the bone because that’s not what reading is ABOUT?

I don't get it - literally and figuratively. I don't Nook or Kindle or eBook in any way, shape or form. I love my books. I don't need bells and whistles to distract me from my reading experience. The words trigger the imagination, and that enhances my reading experience. Music and video . . . that's the antithesis of reading!
