Right before Christmas I decided that I was going to give my 1st generation iPad to my mom for Christmas. She was going to use it more than I and I felt like being generous. The only downside for me was that I would be losing my E-Reader. Now I still had my smartphone that would allow me to access my Nook App but it just is not the same on the phone.
We took a trip to Barnes and Noble and I decided what the heck why don’t I just get a basic Nook. They are cheap enough and just for reading. Well I finally settled on the Nook Glow Light just in case I ever need the light feature. The nice saleswoman found me a great cover and I was off.
I was not 100% sure that this would solve my iPad woes but I had hope that the Nook would allow me the ability to read more books. My skepticism of the dedicated E-Reader was completely unfounded. In the coming days I found myself using it more than I ever had used my iPad for reading. It became something that I put in my purse or backpack whenever I leave the house. It is what I do during my lunch at work and I have read more in the past month than I have in a long time. I truly believe this is because of the technology of an E-Reader. The screen refresh is not the same as a tablet and it is so much easier on the eyes. I will never again use my tablet for a reader now that I have seen how amazing a dedicated reader is.
The only complaint I have in the Star Wars universe is that not ALL my favorite books are available on it. While a lot of them are I think going forward any Star Wars book that is released needs to have an E Book. I am not saying that the Nook is better than the Kindle or any other E Reader because I have never had one all I am saying is that the E Book is fabulous. As much as I love Books and I really do, I love the smell, the feel and the look of a real book for convenience sake I would never trade in my e reader. So for all the publishers out there that have ever published a Star Wars novel. Please please please give us an E Book version.
This was just an idea I had and maybe not a lot of people will agree. How neat would it be that if you bought a hard copy of a book there was a code to put in online that would also give you the E Book? I think that would be so awesome because then BookWorms like me could have both!
What do you guys think? Do you have an e reader? What do you read?
If you have a nook and you want to be my nook friend let me know on twitter I will add you and we can lend each other books! You can also find me on Goodreads.
May the force be with you,
