What better time to start digging at that pile of books you’ve left to dust all year long than summer vacation? You finally get the time to sit down and forget the hassle and stress of work and immerse yourself in a good novel. I personally like having a physical copy of a book with me, especially because I can skip forwards and backwards easily, and write up notes on pages.
If you’re a real geek though, you might be attracted to the trendier and all digital ebooks.There are already countless sites on the web from which you can download electronic copies of novels, comics, journals and more.
