5 things using a Kindle taught me about reading

For the past five months I’ve swapped over from using traditional paper books to a Kindle. I was gifted a Kindle Paperwhite off a family member for Christmas.

If you’re new to this then don’t worry, the title is very self explanatory. Throughout the past year I’ve been creating a collection of things I’m grateful for. They don’t make the most exciting blog posts in the world but I like taking the time out to be thankful for what I have, and I always encourage you guys to let me know in the comments three things you’re currently grateful for.
