How many of you read our WEM books on an e-reader?
I go back and forth. I think Uncle Tom’s Cabin is the only book I read solely on the Kindle. For all of the other titles I have used a mix of paper copy and Kindle. There are advantages and disadvantages to each.
Here’s my latest conundrum…
As a faithful WEM student, I am supposed to mark up my books: highlight, fold corners, jot down notes. I can do all of that with my e-reader. In chapter one of The House of Mirth I found a beautiful quote that I wanted to share and discuss.
She was so evidently the victim of the civilization which had produced her, that the links of her bracelet seemed like manacles chaining her to her fate.
Great imagery: “bracelet seemed like manacles“.
349 other people have highlighted that quote.
Why avoid spoilers and skip introductions?
How will I learn to discern what’s important if I see 349 other people telling me, “Look here. Copy this down. It’s important!”?
