Traitor!

I have a confession. I feel like a traitor. Really. The Pastor bought me a Nook. Why does that make me feel like a traitor? Well, I am a hardcore Amazon girl. Really. It is quite sad, really. But when it came to buying an e-reader, I went back and forth, hemmed and hawed, until finally deciding to betray my book seller and buy a Nook. I feel bad. Really. But it couldn’t be helped. For one, the Nook was about $40 cheaper than the Kindle. Another perk to the Nook is the in-store help. I know I can walk into a Barnes and Noble and a person, a real person, will help me. The Nook also features an SD slot, so you can store unlimited numbers of books. (The built in memory will hold about 1500, and I doubt I’d ever go beyond that, but the SD slot makes me feel better about that.) Barnes and Noble has a lending feature with many of their ebooks. That means when I buy a book, I can lend it to a friend with a Nook for 14 days. Amazon just doesn’t do that. I feel a lot better having confessed that I, major supporter of Amazon, chose a Nook over a Kindle.

    Lindsey, I totally understand! I was leaning more towards a Kindle myself, cause you just can’t beat Amazons prices, and I love the store (but you still are queen) but when I saw that Amazon doesn’t take paypal and had and no lending feature ,well I looked towards the Nook. Of course I also had a little nudge from you telling me about how awesome it is!
    Believe me even after the order was placed I felt like I betrayed Amazon, and “real book” readers, but once I put it in my hands and started playing with it those feelings quickly diminished. Now I feel like I have a little slice of heaven in my hands! Yep, I am totally hooked! Thank’s for helping me make such a great choice, especially since I have live customer support! ;c)
