I was the person who would skip any blog post about e-readers and e-books. E-readers. Bah. How stupid. What's wrong with books? You know, the kind made with paper?
But then....the e-readers came at me with full force, mocking me with their 3G wireless, taunting me with their 400,000 books on demand (if you're the Kindle) or 1 million (if you're the Nook). The idea of keeping something slim in my purse became tantalizing....and after years of denial.....I kind of want one.
So while I was recuperating from ACL surgery, I came up with the grand idea to sell some of my dusty books on Amazon and use that money to buy an e-reader. I was up to $121 before Sarcastically Delicious (aka boyfriend) poo pooed the idea of an e-reader. He's so practical. He said why don't you use the $121 to buy new books and then after you read those, sell those back on Amazon, and then buy more. He pointed out that when you purchase an e-book you can't sell it back.
Are any of you Kindle owners? Nook owners? I pad owners? Am I falling for the dark side? Or the path to true reading enlightenment?
