I prefer a paperback, but the Kindle is great for secrecy!

CHERYL GIBBS: My DIY painting job didn’t quite work out as planned

Have your say

Thanks to the wonders of technology, millions of us have now swopped our paper books for electronic versions.

I’m an avid bookworm and to me there’s nothing like curling up on the sofa on a drizzly, dull day and immersing yourself in the imagery of a great novel.

It sucks you in and makes you feel you’re part of the story.

If I’m honest, I think I still prefer a good old-fashioned paperback though.

The main reason is that I love being able to dog-ear the pages.

But I must admit my Kindle comes in handy when I don’t wish other people to know what I’m reading.

It’s especially wonderful when you want to keep some reads to yourself (i.e. Fifty Shades of Grey)!
