Now I can easily read both ways, much to the amusement of my family. An avid bibliophile, i have purchased and read at least 1000 books and have donated more than 700 to various libraries and va hospitals across the United States.

At any rate, i now thoroughly enjoy both physical as well as e-reads. A human resources professional by trade, regardless of where i am, i can be found with either a book or my kindle in my possession. Stuck in a traffic snarl on the freeway?
