eBooks & I

Before you go & say, “she changed her mind because she knew she was wrong”, I’m telling you this, I admit that ebooks can be useful in some situations but still I believe real books are essential in our lives & ebooks will never ever replace them, they still have their sacred place in my heart.

Now, how did I change my mind!? I was thinking of getting Fifty Shades of Grey & I was skeptical about ordering it from the US because I’ve read mixed reviews about it, so I was thinking what if this book really sucks? Throwing it will be a real waste of paper (7ram). So I thought about getting it online! Not, to mention Aramex & their slow awful service & high prices! Incase you didn’t know they’ve raised their prices AGAIN & still their service SUX! So why let them benefit?

The whole thing took me 2 hrs :/ yes that long! My dear twitter friend @BlackTulip was very patient with me & helped me create a US account without a credit card, & then getting the Kindle app for iPad! After that I purchased Kindle Gift Card from Amazon & then redeemed it. I was able to buy 5 books for ONLY $25, a very good price!

Will start reading from it as soon as I finish the book I’m reading right now!

    OMG. lol.. I have each and every book u have in ur library..

    -Fifty shades of grey… what can I say…. very veeery risque… the organization and structure aren’t that great, but the story is a bit unexpected, and so so so addictive. I literally couldn’t put it down, and finished all three books in 4 days!

    -Beautiful disaster.. everyone says that it’s a spin-off of fifty shades, and in certain parts of the book, I agree! u’ll see how when u finish reading it. But nevertheless, it’s good!

    Enjoy!

    • hehe that’s creepy :P or maybe we share the same taste ;)

      I’m gonna start reading Fifty Shades of Grey next, like in a couple of days!

    hello swera

    how did u redeemed it bcoz purchased Kindle Gift Card from Amazon but i still cant purchase

    • 1st u should have an amazon account & when you buy the kindle gift card they’ll send u an email with the coupon number! copy the number & then go to ur amazon account, & then go to apply gift card to your account & paste it there :)
