I never thought it would happen to me. Thought I was strong enough to withstand the subtle lure, the temptation, the HYPE. But no....one unguarded moment caused me to stray from the only way I'd ever known, and I was reeled into the addiction of an e-reader.
Ha! Made you nervous, didn't I ;)
After my birthday, I was the proud owner of a shiny new Nook Tablet. At first, I thought sure, I'd get a few books, but would mostly enjoy having the gadget for web surfing purposes and playing games on the run. Then it hit me, book by book, I actually enjoy reading on this device! The ease of holding it in one hand and turning pages, etc make it more convenient to read that a physical book. Once I rooted the Nook (after many long, arduous hours of research) I also enjoy using it as a tablet, and it's become an amazing substitute for my laptop. In fact, my laptop never goes on unless I am doing List Hostess work or writing. (And typing this blog post, LOL.)
While I still enjoy physical books--especially those I will want to pass to my kids, or non-fiction which I like to mark up, underline, and slather with Post-its--the majority of the books I will purpose will be electronic.
How about you? Have you joined the craze? What do you like/not like about e-readers?
