By far I am NO expert on this subject, but I do own two of the the three that I have mentioned. I love techno toys and I hope to own the third at some point. It's not a priority it's just my insane obsession for books and trinkets.
My first device was a Kindle and for reading pages upon pages it truly is soothing on the eyes. To me it is the closest to reading a live book. There is no glare and the screen mimics the printed page almost perfectly. You can adjust it to whatever type size is most comfortable for you .... which is great for people who don't wish to wear reading glasses.
The Kindle also saves your page and the battery life is pretty long. The best aspect of this device is that Amazon is connected to it so the choices for books are endless. AND you get download your favorite classics for FREE.... yes FREE. I am an avid classic English literature lover so for me this is like a pound of Godiva chocolate for FREE. Dickens, The Bronte Sisters, Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde, and Shakespeare, just to name a few. There are literally hundreds to choose from and within a few seconds they appear magically on your Kindle.
Now I know this works similarly on Nook and Ipad, but for some reason it seems easier on Kindle.
Speaking of Ipad.... I finally got one for my birthday and I do LOVE it... I am still leaning all the amazing things this device is capable of.... I ADORE anything from Apple. My laptop is a Macbook pro and I have an Ipod and soon as I can upgrade my phone, yes, the IPhone will be my next new toy.
Now, as much as I love my Ipad, the screen mimics that of a computer so it does tire the eyes out eventually. BUT, this amazing device does SO much more than any reader, it's almost like a computer.... just ask Alex J. Cavanaugh... he is the one who convinced me I had to have one! He is the TRUE expert on this subject, and if you drop by his blog and go to his archives, you can read it post on the Ipad II. My most favorite part about this device is that I can go anywhere with ease and be able to write, edit, blog, etc. SO much more convenient and LIGHTER than carrying a round the good old laptop.
As for the NOOK... this device I am least familiar with. But it looks intriguing especially now that there is a color version. For anyone who owns one, I would LOVE your views on this device.
What e-reader do you own? I would like to know which one and why you are so addicted to it.
PLEASE drop by tomorrow, I have a VERY important post. I am continuing to post on health every Tuesday, since the response was amazing last week on first health feature. You will not want to miss this... I was SHOCKED and FURIOUS when I first found out about this.
Until tomorrow, have a terrific day.
