Back in December, I received an email from a colleague stating that she was getting a ‘nook’ for Christmas from her dear husband. She was looking to connect with others who had one. After scratching my head for a few days, I decided to swallow my pride and ask her what was a ‘nook’? She explained that the Nook was an e-reader which allows owners to actually loan books with one another. She encouraged me to check out the website (Barnes & Noble) and try the Nook.
Well, I kind of forgot about it until I was spring cleaning my library at home. I realized that I was running out of bookcase space and that the stacks of books (yes, we are a family that reads) were taking up the dining room chairs. I logged onto the website and spent way too much time over the next few days researching the Nook. In my quest to make our home ‘greener’, I thought this device could be a good thing for me. Before the week was out, I had signed up for a free class at B&N about the Nook, and bought myself one that night.
It’s been about a month now and despite a few glitches the first week, I love my Nook! I have so much fun buying books online and seeing how quickly they download to my Nook. I can carry many more books on trips without worrying that I will missplace one or get it dirty. I recommend you check out the Nook.
