I keep seeing all these people on the train every morning with their kindles and their iPads reading books while waiting to get to their destination and I think to myself ” I really need to do that”. I have an ipad mini at home with some magazine subscriptions and books that can use some love. I’m just a little bit afraid that because of what it is, it may suffer s propensity to get stolen. I’ve seen people whip out the old iPads and nothing happens to them (we hope).. What should I do? I have seen many use their iPhones /Androids as reading devices but I really don’t feel comfortable doing that on a small screen. I’ve also toyed with the idea of buying a cheap kindle touch but honestly, that would be like a major waste of hard earned cash I need for other things. I guess the safest method is to stick to a real bound paper book? I just feel that since I bought myself a ipad mini for Xmas, I should seriously use it. I mean its meant to be portable is it not ? So far portability for me has been from the bedroom to the living room. Maybe I will stick with a bound book for now and research how other commuters fair with their ipad minis if I actually see any !!
