Why I Like Reading (Kindle Paperwhite Review)

How I Started Reading Regularly

Let me preface this product review with the history of my attitude toward books in general.  The only time I would read books was when I was forced to for school.  Because of that I could not understand how people enjoyed reading.  A while back I decided to try reading recreationally.  I started with a book of a movie that I recently watched, The Hunger Games.  Someone I know borrowed it from the library and let me read the book.  I wasn’t going to make a trip to the library to start this journey because I thought it would turn out boring and I wouldn’t enjoy reading.  I was wrong.  I enjoyed the book and ended up reading the rest of the series.
My reading journey continued with some classics that I have heard quoted many times.  I learned why the answer to life, the universe, and everything is 42 in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  I met HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Now that I found that I did enjoy reading I was looking for the easiest and cheapest way to do it.  My first, and most obvious option, was to visit the library.  In the modern world of technology, that is time consuming and expensive.  After a little research I found that my local library subscribes to an ebook library called Overdrive.  This was great because I already owned an Android tablet so it would be similar to reading a book rather than sitting at a computer.
