So...obviously, I've been wanting to be part of the e-book wave for a while now.
I'm such an Amazon girl, so I was all set to Kindle, until I discovered that the primary vendor in the library world (Overdrive) that loans e-books was compatible with everything...except Kindle.
Lots of soul-searching and teeth-gnashing ensued...tried talking myself into the Nook from B&N, and just when I was ready to take the plunge and just get it...Overdrive and Kindle announced that they finally are going to play nice!
So, of course, this had to happen for my birthday:
With fabulous lit pink cover, of course. ;-)
So far I've read a couple of titles on it, and I absolutely love it! I'm continually amazed by the e-ink, and the total lack of eye strain you associate with reading on a screen. It may not be splashy, colourful or technolusty, but it's perfect for what I want - just to read, read, read!
Now I just have to control my "trigger finger" of shopping from Amazon every time I find a new title I want to read - I *do* still work in a library, after all!
Do you have an e-reader? Do you love it?
