This weekend I picked up a Nook at the library. You can borrow one and keep it for up to three weeks like ye olde books of olde tyme. I reserved it a few weeks ago to test it out. The one I have is "fiction" themed and has 44 books loaded on to it!
The device is so small. I don't think I like it. It feels like I'm still on the computer instead of reading and relaxing. Also, one standard book page takes three nook pages. However, this is coming from a lady who likes it when the large print is available at the library in the book.
I do like that it's light. Reading a heavy book in bed is such a drag. I don't like buying books though so that's another reason I don't think this is for me - unless I could borrow e-books from the library. Now that I think about it, that might be possible. I've heard people with e-readers end up reading a lot more than if they didn't have one. Is that true? I want some hard facts.
In real book news I am on book two of the Hunger Games. It is really good. Randomly, I started watching Battle Royale on Netflix last week and HG is pretty much a rip off of that book/film. Oh well, still a fun mindless read.
