Jamie posted recently about her newly acquired toy...and I've been meaning to post about the same toy but kept forgetting.
Like Jamie, I got myself a Nook e-reader for Christmas. I had enough points through my Bank's debit card rewards program to get the basic Nook with 3G and Wi-Fi. It came right before Christmas...and let me tell you...I'm addicted. I LOVE IT. I'm a book worm, always have been. I love books, but I hate carrying them and hate storing them when I'm finished. I had gotten a Sony Reader for Christmas in 2009, but I had returned it because I didn't care for it and, let's face it, it was $300 I would rather not have spent. So when I realized I could get a Nook for nothing I couldn't pass that up (Hubs got his IPod this way in 2009).
I've read 8 books so far in less than a month. The Nookbook wish list is addicting and so easy to add to. I can just click through the B&N website and add books to my wish list, or buy them directly. And it only takes seconds to download the books to the device. I can even do it at work with the weak 3G signal I get in my building.
I also LOVE the idea of their "Lend Me" feature. It allows Nook readers to Lend books to one another for a week by simply sending them an email. Until Jamie posted, I didn't know anyone else with a Nook...but now that I do, I'm syked that I can Lend books to someone miles away.
Does anyone else have a Nook?
