Happy Friday, voracious readers! Welcome to my first Bookish Banter post, which are discussion posts here on Reader Voracious Blog. This series of posts can be where I talk about my favorite books or ask the community for feedback on a topic; today is one of the latter!
I have always preferred physical books, and absolutely refused eBooks up until 2014. I was backpacking through South America for three months, and my plan to utilize “Take a Book, Leave a Book” libraries in hostels wasn’t going 100% according to plan… a lot of the books were in Portuguese! When I was enjoying the sun and sights in Arequipa, Peru I wandered into a Radioshack and left with a tablet ($35 after conversion!) and began getting sucked into series via free Kindle book offers. This trip and the Kindle app is what led me to take more chances with books and broadened my horizons!

Well that little tablet is finally on its last leg, and I have switched to using the Kindle app on my mobile phone. Which works just fine, but I miss having a larger device so I am considering getting an eReader. The problem is there are so many on the market! Do you have an eReader or tablet? What do you use for eBooks and would you recommend it? I am super interested in your feedback!
