    I've been considering getting a Kindle, or a nOOk, but I'm not sure if I would use them.

    I am a book-a-holic, I am almost never with a book. But recently, I've been trying to reserve things from the library more and more to keep it fresh, but the library doesn't have my interests and I am on tremendous waiting lists for books such as Angels and Demons.

    Would it be worth it for me to get a Kindle or Nook?

    But my biggest question: Would I be able to adjust to reading books on an electronic doo-hickey

    Any opinions are welcome! [​IMG]

    www.mybebook.com has a nice E-reader. Unfortunately it's temporarily out of stock.

    I think you'd probably be able to adjust! The screens don't glow or flicker so it's a lot like a normal book without the snot on the cover!

    Barnes and Noble stores should have demos of the Nook available to check out

    I recently got a kindle and I love it! I like it much better than the Sony one I tried at Borders, though I haven't tried the Nook. It is very easy to use and since I am the kind of person who is always reading several books at a time, it is perfect! I have gotten many books for free that I wouldn't have otherwise read and it has really expanded my reading base. It didn't take much at all to get used to pressing a button rather than flipping a page and it is so much easier to read one-handed now. The kindle is great! Here is an article comparing the two: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10379125-1.html . I prefer the kindle's key system to a touch screen one, but if you like the idea of a tough screen, it might be worth waiting for a nook (apparently they are sold out for the rest of the year).
