A Rose is a Rose...
When I first got my Kindle, I thought it was the coolest way to read. I loved the anonymity of carrying a variety of titles anywhere from the gym to vacation with the parents to the dentist office. I read ebooks exclusively for months. Until my book club chose a selection that wasn't available as an ebook. Okay, so I could deal with the occasional paperback.
Months later we decided to take a long car trip and unfortunately, I get an awful headache when I read in the car. But alas -- I remembered that my Kindle played audio books and I embarked upon a brand new experience. Isn't it wonderful all the choices we now have in books? I was thrilled when I learned Protective Custody was going to be an audiobook. I could be part of the book revolution!
One of my other romantic suspense books, Tropic of Trouble, a personal favorite (since the hero is loosely based on my wonderful husband), is coming to print. Yet another format I'm going to conquer -- or something like that.
I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see what the future holds for books. Will we be able to somehow read a hologram? Watch our story unfold in 3-D? I'm curious. What as yet uninvented format would you like to see come into being?
