It's amazing how time flies by. My Pocketbook Touch Lux 2 ebook reader is over 2 years old! I use it not only me, but also Piotr and we are both happy with this model. If you are looking for an ebook reader with backlight, long-lasting battery and one that does not jam and does not have mussels - check out Pocketbooks. If you still do not know what to choose - ebook reader or book, below I will try to answer this question.
Ebook reader or book - what to choose?
As I mentioned before - my Pocketbook Touch Lux 2 ebook reader is over 2 years old. I thought about the reader for quite a long time, because the books did not fit on the shelf. I am a minimalist and try to buy only what I really need or like. Books are one of those things I can't deny myself. I really like reading and moving magically to the world created in reading. Piotr always laughs that when I get a new book, I disappear for a few hours. It is true.
I am currently reading the book 'Woman with Red Notebook' by Antoine Laurain, then I will be reading 'Kiss Goodbye' by Tasmina Perry. I like light and pleasant books, as well as all sorts of guidebooks such as French ways for beauty, slim figure and health. This is a very interesting book that talks not only about skin care, but also about the whole body.
The e-book reader has the advantage that read books can be deleted and do not take us space on the shelves. The same applies when we buy new books - we can buy more without taking up space at home. Every minimalist should have this device at home.
I buy books in paper that I like to come back to
If a book impressed me very much and I know that I will want to go back to it, I buy it in paper. Such a series are, for example, books about Madame Chic Jennifer L. Scott. I especially like going back to the second part of 'At Home Madame Chic', where, in addition to interesting tips on running a house, find a list of French songs that will captivate more than one heart. The same applies to the 'Be chic!' Style guide. and industry literature on social media, internet marketing, etc. (although we also have a lot of books on the reader).
Electronic books usually cost about the same as paper books. Many people find it unfair because the book is not printed. Don't judge me.
Does the ebook reader spoil the eyes?
I didn't notice that my eyesight was deteriorating when reading books on a reader. Actually reading books, whether on a reader or paper, after some time my eyes hurt, it's normal. Our eyes rebel with too much effort. Remember, however, that if you like to read in the evening e.g. at bedtime (I'm a supporter of reading at bedtime, but not too long, because later I can't sleep or dream about stupidity), be sure to invest in a backlit reader. Such readers are a little more expensive than those that do not have backlight, but certainly your eyes will be grateful for that.
Reading without backlighting the eyes get tired much faster! The same applies to reading a paper book in poor lighting - it is very harmful to our eyes. If your eyes are tired, I recommend the Argenton Optic Spray, which we spray on the closed eyelids. This product was recommended to me by my ophthalmologist when I said that I often feel eye strain as well as 'dryness'. It really works and you can feel relief quickly.
