~Book or Nook ....

I was recently offered a Nook.   My sister-in-law upgraded to a new and improved Nook and she asked me if I'd like to have her old one.  I hesitated but finally said "Yes".  I took it home and set it down, picked it up, set it down, picked it up again and  tried to read a "nook book".  It just didn't feel right.  It actually felt awkward.  I missed the feel of holding a chunky paperback in my hands.  I missed the smell of the paper.  I missed turning the pages.  I missed placing my bookmark in the book after I was done reading for the night.  I missed the "book".   I'm not against technology .... I like having the latest and greatest of anything and everything but this just didn't feel right ... at least to me.  So, I guess with this one I'm going to be behind the times .... give me a good old fashion book to hold and read and I'm happy.   Now, excuse me while I go and curl up on the couch and read a chapter or two.


  1. I'm like you, I go for the book too. I just finished reading "The Help." Isn't that a good book. I want to see the movie now :)

  2. Hey Sis! I got so excited to see you posted! I wait on baited breath! BOOK-without a doubt-I could have written what you did word for word...I even pick out the bookmark i'm going to use specific to the book i'm reading! The Help is an all time I need to go see the movie. Wish we could go see it together. Love the softness and light in this D~

  3. If it is any consolation - This is how I feel about photography - The feel of holding a photo, cannot be replaced with digital images on my laptop - Some photos are "meant" to be printed and held - So I can relate to what you have been said about Nook vs Book. I am on the fence, I do want the new Kindle Fire, but I feel I will also miss opening the book to my last page read, the feel of the book in my hands, the smell of the paper etc ... I think we are on the same page (no pun intended) on this one :)
