I was slow to embrace technology. I love books! The weight of a book in your hands, the smell of the paper, the use of random objects as bookmarks... I have come to accept however that books take up space, and asked my family for an eReader for Christmas.

For 12 days I explored my new toy. I read books, and delighted in the ease at which I could get my literary hit. Instant fix! Multiple novels in the one light package. No travel to the bookshop. No wait for a parcel to be delivered. No frantic search for space in my bookshelf, piling up of books and hiding books behind books.

Then carelessness. My eReader dropped from my hands. I tried to carry too many items. Distracted. I was left with an L of unchangeability.
