This is taken from The Book Vixen; no copyright is intended however I have been wanting to do a new intro post about my particulars when it comes to books and reading, so without no further ado….
For those of you who do not know – I am Tansy, ore Library Geek Girl as I have become known on the net as well as many other names, good and bad. I am a library geek because I am training to become a librarian as well as being a huge geek (of comedy, Doctor Who, Sherlock as well as other random stuff).
Are you a paperback reader or digital reader? Up until 1 month ago I hadn’t had or read a book or held an eReader…. now I love Bernard (yes named after Bernard Black from Black Books) which is a Kindle Touch. I am out and about a bit so it is great to be able to carry more than one book around without space being taken up is fantastic.
However I am a fan of the paperback book, which I find it easier to read as they are not as heavy than hardback however I do love both. The only one I am not a fan of is Trade Paperback.
