Because I need aide in enabling my reading habit

I like to consider myself an avid reader. Sure, I read a lot of fluff books and chick-lit. Yes, I love Charlaine Harris's Southern Vampire Mysteries and her Harper Connolly Series. I don't read enough "classic" literature, but that's okay!

For my birthday... Gzilla was awesome and got me a nook

I decided to go with the nook rather than the kindle for a few reasons. One, if something happens, if there's a problem, if I'm confused... i can take it into a store and say "fix it." Every day, I can go into any B&N store and read any book I want for an hour. There's expandable memory for the nook (granted, downloading 1500 books is going to take a while, but still). I like the interface of the nook better.

I do highly recommend getting a cover for the nook or the kindle. It makes it feel more like a book. I got this one because it says "I am Oz, the great and terrible" on the front and "curiouser and curiouser" on the back. What can I say, I'm a sucker for The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland.

Now I just have one small problem. Before, when I was finished a book... I had to make a trip to the book store. Now when I'm finished a book? I push the "shop" button and download a new one, and I have it in 60 seconds! Great, right? I think Gzilla created a monster...

Quick update on my face: the spot that they scraped (which is dangerously close to my eye, by the way) ITCHES LIKE THE DICKENS! But I think it's looking better. I should know what's going on in about 2 weeks.

Be sure to take the time to browse the free books. You may find some gems!

I know with my Kindle, even after I finish a book and remove it from the device, it actually never goes away. Mine are all stored on I'm sure Nook has a similar storage site.

So you DO know that you'll be getting at least a small e-gift card for your birthdays and Christmas, right?

And I LOVE the idea that I'll be taking all my books to the beach in September and it will only weigh about a pound! That's the BEST thing about the Kindle/Nook, Sony E-reader!

That was a great gift!!! Let me know how you like it. I've only heard about Kindle's but not much about this
