Daily Inspirations and Adventures

I love my nook

leave a comment »

Last year you gave me a nook for my birthday.  I was thinking it was one of the best birthday presents ever, except you have given me many great bday gifts.  One of the best was you!  (Okay, you might have been a week past my birthday, but I’m glad you weren’t born any earlier.)  I was SHOCKED that you pulled off surprising me for my 50th.  Last year you gave me a nook because you thought I would really like one.  Like is an understatement.  I have become an e-reader convert, although I am still a faithful library patron.  I LOVE that I can go online, at home, and reserve books at the library.  Every Tuesday after I sew at Judy’s house, I go to the library and pick up the books I had reserved.  It’s like getting presents every week.  If I love my nook, what kind of books do I reserve?  I reserve “art” or picture books.  Quilting, gardening, and beading books are not the same translated from a 8 1/2 x 11″ book to a 3 1/2 by 5″ nook screen.  I also use the library computer to reserve books for the nook-yes, they are treated the same as a regular book.  One can reserve the book, I receive an email when it is available.  The one difference is that instead of returning a book to the library, the book somehow disappears from the nook after three weeks.   (A second difference-no late fees, ever!)

When I went to the library yesterday to pick up my picture books, I discovered that I had  inadvertently ordered 11/22/63 as a real book, not an ebook.

Do you see that there is a problem…I am NOT  scared of a book with many pages (850) but I don’t think any book should weigh FOUR POUNDS.  Wow, that sounded a lot worse than it looks, and yes I did actually weigh the book.  So, I’ve decided that I will bite the bullet, read the first few chapters of the book, and if I like it, I will purchase the ebook.
