you know, it's the same old story.
boy finds nerdy sci-fi book for cheap at goodwill.
boy LOVES said nerdy sci-fi book, and proceeds to find the rest of the series for cheap on ebay.
boy can't wait until the mail comes to keep reading, so boy finds a free electronic version of his new favorite books.
boy spends the next 2 weeks plowing through the books on his phone.
boy decides he wants a screen bigger than 3 inches.
boy buys himself a new toy friday night.
so of course...now girl can't decide if SHE wants a fancy new e-reader too.
i have ALWAYS talked trash about e-readers, because i LOVE books. i like the way they smell, i like they way they feel, i like the joy of having them and checking them out of the library and browsing for new ones.
BUT i hate having to wait until the library gets around to my request for the new book. it would be nice to be able to cart around a few ounces of machine, versus a lot of ounces of book when i'm travelling, or sitting at the doctor's office or whatever.
so thanks to the hubs and his new love, i'm contemplating spending my birthday money on a new nook. anyone love their e-reader? anyone else's significant other have a love affair with electronics?
