The idea of reading books on screen hasn’t appealed to me.
There’s something about the way a book looks and feels and a connection with the printed page which a computer can’t emulate.
But the news that Lonely Planet is going to be available on Kindle might make me change my mind.
We use Lonely Planet guides a lot when we travel but their size and weight means they’re not very portable.
Being able to download relevant chapters or whole books as you go would be much better than carting heavy tomes around.
One of my travel nightmares is being somewhere with nothing to read. I’ve learned to pack light when it comes to clothes but not with books. Kindle might solve that problem for me too.
