Why I Went Nook

After a great deal of resistance to going the technological route, I finally broke down and got a Nook this past June.  For the longest time I had said I didn’t want to lose the feel of reading while holding a book in my hands.  I was old-fashioned about it, and knew there was something about simply turning pages.  However, I do like my gadgets and realized that it wouldn’t be so bad for me to get hip to an eReader in the end.  A whole library is now with me wherever I go.  Meaning when I have the urge to go back to a favorite book, no matter where I am, I can have it at a moments notice (my own personal book genie, yippie).  Any time I want to read Pride and Prejudice, I can without any fuss or much consternation.  I see it akin to moving my music to an MP3 Player, where I have so much music at my fingertips in a small device (my own DJ with me all the time).  You see I am an avid reader (as if that was hard to guess when I have decided to blog about books and reading), so having books with me is like a fantasy come to fruition after never realizing it could be mine for the taking.  I also love, not being of a patient persuasion, having a new book whenever I want it practically as soon as I want it.  I can now get the book as soon as I want it any time of day, without having to get in the car to go get it at the store or library.  That truly is a blessing to the impatient.  I have clearly jumped on the technology bandwagon and I am on it for the duration.  To those who say what about turning pages, yup, I seem to be making do and my fingers are thanking me :0)
