The Reading Room


In recent years our experience of reading has changed. With more and more people preferring to read with electronic devices rather than the old fashioned way.
I too have an app on my Ipad which I use for reading, it certainly has its place. No carting heavy books around when you want a good read.

And then there are Audio books, ever more popular listening to someone read the words to you. Of course, this also has it’s place, especially for the sight impaired.

Having said this I do think this is rather sad. For me, part of the enjoyment of reading is definitely holding the book in my hand and turning the pages, this coupled with reading the words makes it a ‘whole’ experience.

I’m not in any way knocking the modern ways, but I do think sometimes there’s nothing nicer than curling up with a good old fashioned book. There’s something very special about the reading experience you just can’t get electronically.

What do you prefer, tablet or book? It would be interesting to see what other people feel about this, feel free to leave comments….


This cute casual outfit is from KiB Designs, and is available until 3rd March at The Hipster Fair. The Iri outfit consists of the shirt and shorts (one piece). It comes in fits for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink and 5 standard fitmesh sizes and there is an alpha layer included so will fit both mesh and classic bodies. There are three colours of shorts to choose changeable via a HUD. There are six designs of the Shirt to choose and if you buy the fatpack they are all included! Bargainous! These very cute an intelligent glasses are also from KiB at the Hipster Fair and these are a dollarbie item for the fair. You can get either head or nose fits and they are resizeable. Double bargainous!

Also at the HIpster Fair are these lovely flat sandals from Slipper Originals. These are the Prairie Sandals and are one of 2 exclusives from Slipper for the event. As always with Slipper there are lots of colour options to change all aspects of the sandal, making them a go with any outfit essential!


My pose and prop is another fabulous creation from LW poses. This is called A Book Worth Reading. It comes with the prop of cats and books you see at my feet, plus the book in my hand. There are two poses included one normal and one mirror. You can get this now at the LW Poses mainstore.

Have fun shopping, hope your week goes well, I’ll be back soon with more nice things to show you.

Psst – Just so you know Bargainous is a made up word!

  1. I prefer a book and have a large library of same. A couple of years back, I received a Kindle Paperwhite as a gift and now collect authors of all sorts on that. It has opened up more literature to me at a cheaper rate than buying books. However, if I admire a particular novel or writer that is worth keeping, then I still prefer a book.
