I also like to eat alone… I know, I know, some people find it odd, but whatevs. I love catching up on reading while eating breakfast, lunch or dinner. I don’t allow myself to feel guilty for not studying though… It’s good to take a break from boring lecture notes and dense textbooks!
So this past weekend, I was coxing a boat at IRAs (more to come on that!) and I packed a book that I’ve been working on for a month or so (Testimony… it was okay btw). It was perfect because I had about fifty pages left… or so I thought. I ended up having four pages of book, ten pages of book club questions, and a chunk of an excerpt for another book. College Prepster was NOT happy.
Since I’ve been going back and forth from the boathouse so much– and practicing a million times a day– Barnes and Noble has become my second home. After two weeks of reading through magazines, skimming new books, and people watching, I started liking the idea of getting a Nook: the B&N e-reader. [Credit to B&N: GREAT marketing strategy!!!] They had a kiosk set up right in the front of the store with someone answering questions and a video was on repeat upstairs.
After the whole, oh-I-realize-I-don’t-have-anything-to-read incident this weekend, I decided it was time to take the plunge into e-readers.
After lots and lots of internet research, I settled on the Nook.
What I like about it so far:
- You get a $50 dollar gift card to start your collection
- Replaceable batteries
- Touch screen navigation
- Room for more space (with an SD card)
- PDFs can be downloaded- perfect for class!!!
Already have a case but want to jazz up your Nook? Customize your own “skin” for it from Skinit.com.
Etsy also has a bunch of cases/covers/holders/pouches. Just search Nook Covers or Cases.
PS Please let me know your top summer reading books! I need to build my library up a bit!
