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.
