Tired of reading a book the "old fashioned" way? Bored of having to turn page after page? Too lazy to go to the bookstore, look for a book and then wait in line to pay? Then you need a nook. That's right, and for a limited time of...forever, you too can be the proud owner of one of these 7.7 inches tall, 4.9 inches wide & .5 inch thick eReaders!
Seriously though, I've only had my nook for a few days and all I can say is, "Wow." It's easy on the eyes because of the eInk technology that was designed to mimic the appearance of ink on paper and I love that the color touchscreen on the bottom allows me to quickly browse through all my books by cover. The nook can hold about 1,500 books in its 2GB internal memory. If that's not enough room for you speed reading, shopaholics - the nook also has a microSD slot.
The nook supports EPUB, PDF and PDB books as well as MP3s and you can side load your own JPG, GIF, PNG and BMP graphics to use as screensavers and wallpapers (you can transfer them from your PC to your nook via the included USB cable). I can download books wirelessly to my nook in a matter of seconds thanks to AT&T's 3g network and Wi-Fi. You can also get free Wi-Fi in Barnes & Noble stores.
The average price of a bestseller is $9.99 but I've found many books for well under that price. You also have the ability to purchase ebooks from other websites such as, kobobooks.com or fictionwise.com (owned by B&N) by side loading them onto your device. The nook also allows you to lend certain books to friends and family for up to 14 days using the LendMe feature. However, once you lend a book, you can never lend it again.
I highly recommend this ereader to anyone who loves to read and is out of book space or anyone who just likes to spend money on electronics. I definitely fit both of these catergories.
