If like myself you are of an age to have spent decades browsing through bookshops to choose and cherish books which have brightened your life, then the ambush represented by E-books has perhaps impacted your life too.
How will I choose my books? I can’t in all honesty accept to browse in a bookshop and then purchase through Amazon. Finally I now accept that this has been an opportunity to change my relationship to my hobby and to become a better informed, more varied and better satisfied reader, both in French and in English.
Update after first year (2015): My kindle and my blog have lead me once again to read books in German (a long story)
Unheard of; I’ve been able to plan my reading a year ahead (with of course room for add ins)
Update after second year (2016): I’ve read and posted 62 books this year of which about one third came from my reading targets, English 5/8, French 7/9, German 4/8, Italian 4/9.
