Reading Love and Nook  
I'll be the first to admit there is nothing more comfy than having a good read at the palm of one's hand. By that I mean an actual book with aged yellow  pages; its edges folded over where bookmarks should have rested in-between; the undeniable woodsy smell reminding me of the Gothic one-hundred year old library nearby my apartment, the interior as finely designed as any church with four large oak tables (two altars length) for studying, and columns upon columns of bookcases full of reading material to keep a person more than busy.

Reading will always be an experience for me, a physical interaction, and discovery. There's nothing better than getting lost in a good book. So naturally, I was opposed to any kind of advanced technology like an e-reader.

Yet life has a funny way of changing a person's perception. After my dogs went through some of my books, I chose to get an e-reader. 
I decided if I was going to resort to a new device I should do a bit of research.

I decided on a Nook instead of a Kindle. I'll go into my reasons in my next post since it's 5AM, and I'm only up because the rain brought me out from sleep.

I want to say yay for Nooks! I also chose a Nook because I am Team Barnes and Noble/Bookstores all the way, and want to support it any way I can...if you are going to get an e-reader, you might as well try to still support bookstores at the same time, IMO.
