I have to say, I love my Kindle. And one of the main reasons is that it makes it much nicer if I am reading a romance or an erotica novel. I’m not ashamed to read these, but when you use public transit every day to get to and from work, and people sit with you, it’s not always comfortable reading a book with half naked people on the front of it. And trust me, they will see the cover at some point.
With my Kindle, or any other type of ereader, you can read in private. Yes, if they were leaning over and reading over your shoulder they would know what you were reading, but chances are they are not going to get that quite close to you. And really, if they do, well, they deserve to see what you are reading.
Another great perk of an ereader is that you can likely download a free on onto whatever electronic device you have. A tablet, a computer, a smartphone, most of these have the capability to download books that you can read with you wherever you go. And many libraries offer systems that will allow you to borrow books from them so you do not have to even step into the library to borrow your erotica.
My plan is to write some erotica. I have ideas at this point but they have not formed into a point where they are a story. A few are getting there but they need to be expanded on and drawn out. 500 words does not a story make. that said, once they are ready, they will be published on the Kindle format and maybe a few other formats if I can figure them out. And then you can freely read them on your reader without having to worry about what others think.
If you do not have a kindle, that is fine. There are free apps that you can download on your electronic devices or onto your computer.
