Bookworm


What you may not know about me is I LOVE LOVE LOVE to read it's by far my top 3 favorite pass-times. I read at least 1-2 books a week so you could imagine my excited when I found out about these little treasures.
This one is the Kindle2 by Amazon
The Nook made by Barns and Noble
And the Sony Book Reader

Too bad my Birthday and Christmas are months away because I can't justify just buying it yet....But boy would I love one...I wonder which one is the best

I'm interested that you want one; I want one, but just for textbooks. I prefer the physical book to read. We'll have to chat about this on Sunday!

WHAT???!!! What is this goodness?! I'm googling all three of these RIGHT now.

Forewarning though...if a book you download goes out of print, they can pull the book from your Kindle. I think that's kind of stupid. They can't do that with a physical book. I treasure my books....

I would go for a kindle, my mom and a bunch of my friends have one and they are awesome. It is nice to have the physical book sometimes but sometimes books are so heavy you can't lay in bed comfortably but with the kindle you can lay however you want and not have to reposition. I think they are sweet. plus we have so many books lying around I don't know what to do with them all. We rarely read them twice because there is too much out there we want to read next.

I've done my research...next Christmas the Nook is MINE!

Hey I'm glad I found your blog! With you leaving (and Kiri) I won't have any way of keeping up with you guys and sweet Taimi next year! I have heard about these! I totally love to read too! Even though it would probably be cheaper in the long run to buy one of these and then just buy e-books, theres just something about a new book that I love! SOunds crazy but I love the smell of the new paper and getting it all worn out from tagging the pages and stuff. Weird but I love that! Let me know if you get one cuz I'll want your opinion (I can't justify the cost either til I know it's REALLY worth it!!)

my sister got the kindle for christmas from our dad, and she loves it!!!
My dad has stolen it away from her too so he could read a book too, but he said the one thing he doesn't like is there is no backlight, because amazon wanted it to be as much like a book as possible, so if you think you'll need light, maybe go for another one!

Happy shopping!!

hey, ashley... we met out in Utah for Spark last year... i'm not just some random stalker ;) I was just taking a peek at your family pics that Collin took... anyway, thought I would let you know my mother got the nook because she can check out books from the library with it, and not have to purchase every download. she is also addicted to sudoku, and found it on her nook... she plays and reads with it all the time.
happy researching/dreaming/saving/ eventually getting one!
