Hey, there. New here.
« on: March 04, 2013, 01:22 PM »
Hi there. Just found this place while hunting down some old fanfics. Google sent me here but every link or pdf was "you cannot read this until you register" :/ so I did. I don't even remember how I found fanfic, but it was a way of prolonging living in the world of a certain vampire book series once it was over. I started off with the same ones everyone was reading at the time, poorly written and down right smutty. A few  years ago I finally found my way to the really well written ones with plot and everything! I'm a real book hold out, no Ereaders for me.

Welcome.  The guys in Fanfic Alley are really nice and helpful.  Enjoy.

I understand what you are saying.  Until last year, I only read hard copy books.  In Jan there was an ereader on sale for 33 bucks with taxes and it was a 129 dollar one.  I figured if I didn't like it, the niece who goes to the gym every morning at 5 a.m would love it.  She could take it and read while she waited to start work.    I've never looked back.  I now have series I use to fuss to get and books that I could never find in hard copy.   

You know what the real sell was?  I was watching a show on the BBC about books and ebooks  concerning the future of book format.  They showed a very large book van.  They proudly announced that there were 2500 books in that van.  I looked at my ereader.  I had 5000 books on it.  And I can up up to 30 MORE GIGs on that book if I buy a 32 gig card.   THAT sold me. 

Now I go past the book shelf in the local store which has about 75 books on it and snicker.  It's a brave new world for me and I wonder why I waited to try it so long.
