Always I like to celebrate my birthday like a big event. I get exited about that before a month 🙂  It is so good to get many calls from family and friends,this year was no different. I started getting my gifts a week before! I got 2 dresses from my husband. It is the usual gift I get from my mom but as I was away from her this time I really missed my mom and dad. But I was happy to get call from them 🙂 Okay now I don’t want to drag anymore details because my birthday was  a week back that is 7th of June and I am sure people will get bored if I write about everything here.

I GOT AMAZON KINDLE FIRE…… WOOOOOO hoooooooooo  Yeaaaaay! I know I was thinking of buying this from a long time. But I got this from my husband as a birthday gift 🙂 😉 I can’t say how exited I am! I don’t think anything can be a better gift than that especially to me! (Everyone knows what a big book worm I am)

Kindle birthday gift

This is my new kindle with my lovely doll. I liked him when I first saw him in one of the malls here and for my surprise after a month my husband gave it to me as birthday gift. I like double colored hearts all over his body, he is cute isn’t he?

Now I can read e books on kindle. I already started reading The walking dead Comic series on kindle. But in Middle East I can’t get any free books available on amazon.  Many authors made it unavailable in certain countries. As I am not from here( I know that we are not going to settle here) I can always download free books in future 🙂

Before I begin with the post I want to tell why I am posting this instead of posting reviews on books. Answer is simple I didn’t read any book this week 🙂 I am stuck with “Nights in rodanthe” ( as usual no time to read in office because I recently got caught while reading 😦 ) and My sister’s keeper which I am managing to read whenever I get time.

This post is about free e books. I have seen many people downloading the e book in different format from sites which give it for free of cost.  E books are always available at low price compared to hard books.  There is another category known as online novels, which are given by authors to readers in free of cost (like “The Lycan series’’ by Nicky Charles on feed books). That is really good becuase books are available with authors permission.  But some e books are available for free without author’s permission.

Authors deserve to make money from book. Anyone that makes a copy of the book and puts it online or emails it to others is doing a mistake. Not only authors, but many artists like musicians, script writers and film makers are facing the same problem. There are lot of ways to copy the original stuff and give it for free online.

But a coin has two sides. Same way there are people I have seen buying books after reading the e copy of it. They say that its good to read it first then buy it. They say they can read books from new authors and then buy it rather than buyin it first and then keep it aside without reading. May be this free e books will help them.

Kindle fever!

As other book lovers I spend a lot of time reading about new books, and book reviews online. I found a  lot of people using kindle, as it is easy to carry everywhere and has wonderful storage capacity.

I have read so many ‘E books’ online or in pdf format too. Recently I have 15 e books with me ( as it is easy to read in office, while your boss is around 🙂 ) I am fascinated towards the new wireless device which is available for very attractive price. But I still agree that nothing is better than reading a  ”real” book. Reading your favorite book, sipping on strong coffee is heavenly feeling. Nothing better than reading a book  cuddling inside a blanket while its raining out side.

May be I will buy a kindle someday.  May be kindle readers can shed some light on whether or not this concept  works.

So book lovers what do you think about this? What do you prefer? Real books or E books?
