You can download your books right onto the device and read from there. You can even download magazine subscriptions. I like the idea of having all your book stored in one place. Not have stacks of books around the house (oh so I'm the only one??). And taking this on vacation and not having to lug three and four books around.
There are just so many out there to choose from. Amazon.com has the Kindle. Barnes & Nobles has the Nook. Sony has the Sony reader. The iPad has the reader on it. And you can even use your smartphone (iPhone, Blackberry, etc) to download an application for a reader. SOOOO many options!
Call me old school, but I really love the feel of a BOOK. I know so many people are getting these e-readers and they are LIGHTWEIGHT convincing me that I should to. But I love the idea of being curled up on the couch or in bed with a good book. Flipping pages...not looking at a screen.
Where are we headed next?
I just thought this picture was hilarious! :)
