Should You Transition to Reading On a Kindle?

Hello everyone, and welcome back to my blog. Today’s post is on a topic that I’ve always wanted to discuss. Upon being gifted a Kindle by my parents 7 years ago, I have read a huge majority of books on my Kindle, reading ebooks. At this point, I have around 350 books on my Kindle, and excluding the few that were purchased for my siblings, I have read most of them.

There is something very special and enjoyable about reading a magnificent 1,000 page long Russian tale woven and written by one of literature’s greatest storyteller’s. This story is ultimately about a captivating woman and a non-conformist farmer, but it is also about so, so, so much more. It’s about Stepan Arkadyvich – reckless but still somehow likeable, Alexei Alexandrovich – despite never having done anything technically wrong you somehow lose all sympathy for him, Kitty – you love her for her glamour and then stay for her sweetness and Dolly, Serzoyha and of course… our man, Vronsky.
