Happy Monday: My Nook

Genre: Tech
Topic: Nook

In the battle of the e-reader tablets, iPad, Kindle, and Nook, my heart and soul belongs to my Nook.

Why?  Because Barnes and Noble did it right.  The publishing industry is in the middle of a revolution and they had to evolve.  Did they innovate anything?  Nope.  But they made a quality product cheaper with a better battery life than the Kindle. 

I have the Nook Color, it's like a tablet at the 1/3 of the price of an iPad.  I surf the net, buy books at the touch of a button, I can play Angry Birds IN SPACE...

In the past six months I've seen more and more of my 7th and 8th grade students walk around with e-readers.  I see more kids reading and you know what, it's awesome.

It's VERY motivational for reluctant readers- you only need to focus on ONE page at a time and you can't see how much you have left to read.

I'm a big believer in the e-reader. 

I love my library.

I love my nook.

And one day I'll sit down and figure out HOW to borrow an e-book from the library... I'm sure there's a PDF somewhere I can read.

BTW Today is my HUBBY'S BIRTHDAY!   Happy Birthday babe, I hope you enjoy the shirt I got you from woot!



  1. Visit and click on the link for instructions on how to download e-books to your Nook (it's a PDF). The Library also offers one-on-one e-reader sessions, and a group class at the East Columbia Branch on April 10 at 7 pm. Please let me know if you have any questions!

  2. That is one razzle-dazzle t-shirt! I would totally take a yellow sign and replace it with one of these. Only problem is creating the portal...~lintroller821

  3. No! The Kindle is so much better. But I won't argue, everyone has their own choice in e-readers. However I wont leave the Nook as better than the Kindle on any blog without a formal comment on this monstrosity.
