Nooky Nooky nook Nook

I worked all day yesterday.

I worked all day today.

I talked about eReaders for seven hours straight, and then five hours straight.

What do you want to know about eReaders? (The one pictured at the bottom of this post specifically.)

I can do demonstrations and answer all possible questions and concerns and out loud wonderings/challenges in my sleep.

My specialty is fielding, "But I like a book! I don't want to read from a screen," and "Oh, I can barely figure out how to use my cell phone let alone that eReader thing there."

I have an eReader, and I loves it.

I did not want to love it.

I love a book.

And my cell phone? Has a rotary dial. That's how advanced I am at handling electronics.

When I need to text, I hand my cell phone to my eleven year old daughter. Even the nine year old can text better than I can.

But my eReader? That, I have all figured out.

I am aces with my eReader.

And I adore it so.

So...what do you want to know about eReaders?

This one, specifically. Fire away.

I would miss thumbing actual pages. I'd miss looking ahead a few pages and saying to myself, "ahhhh, it'll be ok", or "ooo, can't wait until I'm there!" while holding my finger in the place I'm at. I don't think I'd like the glare of the screen on my eyes. Or the size which is like a notepad, not an open book.

I like texting, would love an ipad, plan to get a Droid soon, but I have zero desire for an eReader. Can you convince me?

Trying to decide between a Kindle and a Nook. Why do you think the Nook is better?

While I appreciate that an e-reader can carry an entire library in its memory, which is terrific for travel...it can't replace the full-on sensory pleasure of a real book. There's something to the weight, the feel, the smell of a book that no electronic device can capture. I have a library full of books, some from back in the late nineteenth century, and I love them all - I can't see replacig them with a...device.

Sorry, sugar...I wouldn't turn one down if it was gifted to me, but I won't be spending any of my (non-existant) dough on one, either.
