Great Big Ole Hypocrite

Well, I bought a Nook.

Yep, after my big ole diatribe about how I'm not jumping on that wagon...I jumped on the wagon.

Am I ashamed?

Heck, no.

Originally, the Nook was $259. I had started looking at it seriously, though, when Barnes and Noble tacked on a $50 gift card with every order. Then, I suddenly got a panicky feeling, as though I'd be making a huge mistake by buying it. I looked at a Kindle again. Nope, it wasn't that. I just wasn't ready.

Or so I thought.

Yesterday I got an email from Barnes and Noble regarding the Nook and it's new price. The one that had originally been $259 is now $199. And they added another one--the only difference being it's Wi-Fi only rather than 3G...and it's $149.

Yes, I caved! For that price, come on! Who can blame me?

Oh, shake that finger all you want. Talk about me behind my back. Call me a hypocrite....

I have a Nook and you don't :P.

Lol! I love it. My 12 y/o just spent her hard earned money on one too. It was her choice, and she wanted it. Now myabe she'll give me my Kindle back!

My friend has a Nook and I've played around with it. I like it. The only thing I don't like, is that it doesn't have a backlight on the reader portion. That's all though. Nook is awesome and congrats on your new toy! :D

Well, regarding ereaders the point is that they are NOT backlit, because that is how a computer screen is and that is hard on the eyes. If you want backlit, you'd probably prefer an ipad. Or you can download Kindle or Nook software onto your PC for free.

I've been looking at that nook lately. And I got that email the other day too. Tempting.....
and I'm heading out to England. . .so the long flight would do well with a nook since my computer only holds power for, like two hours, LOL.

Ohhhh......The nook is so pretty. . . But I LOVE holding a real book in my hand.

I'll never make up my mind, will I? LOL
