I hinted at the Kindle but got the Nook Color for Christmas . But my husband, bless his heart, doesn't like to shop and he found himself at Books A Million in his panic to get me something and impulse bought the Nook. So far though I'm happy with it. I've never had an e-reader and haven't read for pleasure in many years so I'm really excited.
So far I've only downloaded free books and was also happy to see some free textbooks. I got a free one on menopause since I believe I'm in the pre-phase and thought it would be a good read. Also a couple of James Patterson and some other stuff that looks interesting.
I also love the crossword feature although I'm barely able to make it through the easy level .
I don't get to the beach much so I'm not concerned about the poor lighting in daylight. The majority of my reading will be indoors in bed or on the couch.
