Blogger is acting up again so I will edit to add to appropriate photo's from the office.
I should start out by saying that I am by no means a Luddite as far as toys go. While some may get all freaky deaky about new apps and so on , I am more " Whee....what does this do ? Let's play with it and find out !
I am a book freak.
Yes I know .
I favor fiction and Science Fiction and Fantasy to be precise. I buy hard bound . I collect certain authors.
Given a choice between shoes and books, believe it or not , books win every time.
Bless his heart, SU has built many a fine bookcase for me because he loves books and it makes me happy.
Happy wife....blah blah blah fishcakes.
And I have run out of room at the house.
Yes, I have culled where I can..onesies, accidental duplicates, the odd series I won't read again that has been gifted or donated where possible.
And I swore I would never buy an e reader.
Sort of .
I have discovered that the debate between Kindle and Nook is so absolutely polarizing that it's like Mac vs PC.
I have asked current users and I can tell you that almost 90 % answer with an absolute pick ....and no supporting reasons why .
Not a lot of help there gang but I thank you for the input.
One of the guys that I work with and who's opinion I trust gave me his answer with..tah dah...links that show both side by side and good comparisons.
I have read the reviews on cnet and the hilarious and often flaming comments..trust me, it was hilarious.....and flaming.
It will be a while because while the price point for the two is fairly close , this is something that I will use every day and I want to make the most informed choice I can.
So gentle readers...if you have an opinion, tell me and tell me why ..I really want to know.
