So as you may know, I’ll be gone for two months this summer in New England working for a college prep program. I’m also falling way behind on my 50 book goal, so I’m hoping to get quite a bit of reading done this summer between plane, train, and bus trips, and downtime in the dorm.
I’ve decided to seriously consider getting an e-reader. Normally, I’m against them. I like the feel of a book. I like the thrill of turning pages. I’d be afraid of my e-reader breaking or getting lost. I don’t like reading on a screen as much as on paper. But, I figured it may be worth the money since:
Because I’ve never really given much thought to e-readers before, I haven’t researched them and I know nothing about them. Which is better, the Kindle or the Nook? Can they do anything other than read books? Would it be better to splurge and get an ipad? Is it relatively easy to find free ebooks/get ebooks from various public libraries? What’s the cheapest and/or easiest option out there?
Your thoughts and suggestions are appreciated!
