Let's just ignore that I haven't blogged in 2 months and get on with a new post!

I just got one of the greatest inventions ever. An e-reader. The Barnes & Noble nook to be exact. It. Is. Awesome. I never thought that I'd be the type of person to want an e-reader. I've always liked that I have a large collection of books. I think they look pretty on the shelves too. I've always dreamed of having a library of this caliber.
I could never understand why anyone would want to give that up. And then I saw a presentation about the nook at Barnes & Noble when I was in Edmond and I fell in love. I felt as if my life would not be complete without that little e-reader miracle in my possession. I came home and immediately nagged my family about how badly I needed one for my birthday and Christmas. Finally they caved.

Terry got it for me!!! He's the best. So far I've read 4 books on it. The best part about it is...well there are too many best parts. Here are some of my favorites.
  • I can put it down on the table while I'm eating breakfast and not have to worry about holding it.
  • It picks up cell phone wireless so it's so easy to buy books from anywhere!
  • I get free treats when I bring it into a Barnes & Noble
  • There are 95,000 free books
  • Classics are only $1.99
  • No more carrying giant hard cover books around
The one downfall about this awesome invention is that whenever someone sees me reading it they interrupt my reading time to ask me questions about it. I just want to read my book, people!

This post feels like I'm getting paid to talk about the nook by Barnes and Noble. But I don't care! I love it that much. But it is too bad I'm not getting paid for this...

"Literature is a luxury; fiction is a necessity." - G. K. Chesterton (the quote on my nook's cover)


  1. I've been thinking about getting one! But I love the feeling of a book in my hand... and I too want a glorious library... but you may have increased the probability of me buying one...

  2. I'm with Laura on this one: I like holding books & displaying books after I'm done with them...

    Do your eyes get tired reading on a screen? I read What Would Google Do? in PDF wasn't terrible, but I noticed a little bit of eye fatigue.

  3. haha i cant believe you have already read 4 books! where do you find all this time?!?!

  4. i feel like this blog is your best work. especially the part when you said, "terry...he's the best."
