Yes, I’m aware that title is nonsense. However, so is the world of e-readers (to me). It is similar to the concept of a fax machine. You mean I put the sheet of paper in the copier-like deal and by punching in someone’s phone number, it magically copies to them? Why call it a fax machine? That’s so boring. What about the magic copier? Yes, this is seriously a conversation I have had in my head.
Well folks, this gal is moving up in the world because yesterday for my birthday my wonderful mom and dad, bro and sis gave me a NOOK! I was so excited because let’s face it, I may be not-too-bright about fax machines, but this girl loves her some gadgets. I mean, love. But then…
I started thinking (dangerous, I know). First, my mom has a Kindle, and we have shared before with the Kindle app on my iPhone. That’s pretty darn cool. But can I do that? Then I thought about how cool the Nook Color looks because I’ll be honest, when I wlak in Barnes & Noble, it’s the first thing I see. So I started hunting on the Internet and then thought, why not use the greatest tools at my disposal? My blog and Twitter!
So folks – tell me what you think about the Kindle, Nook and Nook Color. I’m begging because all I really want to do is rip open the plastic and stare at the beautiful device inside but NO. Must. Not. Give. In. I want to make the best decision.
What say you, dear reader? What do you like/dislike, etc.*?

* Let’s just not even get into the whole “I dislike you because you won’t by hardback books” discussion. I don’t buy them often anyway because it’s a lot of money to shell out, though I do think a hardback is worth the price. And also, I use the library like crazy. I buy books, of course I do, and an e-reader won’t change that. It will, however, make lugging around a schoolbag with multiple three-inch textbooks and folders and my personal book much easier.
