Lost in an eBook
May 8, 2012 | In Hobbies |
A few years ago I completely stopped reading books on my commute. It’s not like I decided “today I will cease reading on the train!” I just found that, over time, reading a clumpy paperback became too much hassle. I could only really enjoy reading a book when I was sat comfortably with both hands free to hold/ turn the pages, as you can expect, that doesn’t happen too often in a morning commute. So I just left reading for when I had free time in the evenings. This was the case until recently, when I discovered kindle books which my friend told me about. Henceforth, I rediscovered reading on the go, and enjoyed it more than I ever thought possible.
I found myself reading through The Lucky One ebook, on the platform the other day. It was only when the train doors were beeping to shut that I realised I had to board! This novel tells the story of a US Marine who finds a picture of a woman in the desert, whilst on tour in Iraq. The picture subsequently brings him luck and success to the point where he is determined to find the woman in the picture. It is a compelling read, by Nicholas Sparks who you may remember from writing The Notebook. The story, in essence is suggestive about the concept of fate and destiny, leaving the reader to make up his or her own mind.
I’m not going to spoil it for you, but I would say it is definitely an e-book download worth considering. I really like gripping stories that stay within the limits of possibility, but go far enough for you to question your own viewpoint and opinion. This is definitely one of those stories.
I’m so excited about all the new writers and stories I am to discover through my iPad. In reality the time it takes to journey to and from work remains very much the same, and yet it flies by.
I have nearly finished The Lucky One, and am soon to move on to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo ebook. I recently enjoyed the film and expect the book to be many times better, as it was a best-seller for quite a time I seem to believe. Same goes with The Kite Runner which I saw in the cinema a while back, and I absolutely loved it. So I am really looking forward to reading the The Kite Runner ebook as well! Now I can’t wait to getting lost on the way to work, in my book, of course.
