I love books. I do! I love the feel, the look, the sight of them on a shelf, and the printed words. I have more books than I know what to do with. They become like friends and it's hard to get rid of one once I have it in my hands.
For Christmas I received a Nook. Yep, I've joined the wonderful world of electronic reading. I didn't want to be left behind! But I gotta tell you, it's just not the same.
I was excited to receive it and am still learning all the ropes of the darn thing, but two things I know for sure. One, perusing the pages of an e-reader is nothing like holding a book in you hands, and two, you have to spend money in order to be able to use this electronic wonder. Uh...dud, right?
So I will continue to read a book or two, and maybe even watch a movie as I'm leaning all the many things I can do with yet another computer-type object. But you can bet your bottom dollar I will never stop reading the printed word.
