My NOOK eBook Reader Review

I’ve had my NOOK for 4 or 5 months now and so I wrote a review of the device and put it on The Erotic Reader website (and my crime / mystery books website) for anyone thinking about buying it or the Kindle.

(I don’t own a Kindle.)

Here’s my Nook review and here’s my page about the Kindle.

Anyway, I thought someone else might be interested in hearing a little more about the NOOK (and the Kindle) and since erotic romance readers often have to buy ebooks if they want to keep up with the works of all their favorite erotic romance authors, having an ebook reader is a great benefit—and much better in my opinion than reading from a computer screen! :-)

It’s nice to be able to read whatever I want, whenever. But…those gorgeous book covers…

I have no interest in showcasing risqué book covers to my children, the receptionist at my dentist’s office, the people sitting near me in the school bleachers, or anyone else, no matter how much I might choose to ogle those same covers in private. ;-)

As pretty as many of the covers of erotic romance often are, they aren’t tame and they aren’t always appropriate in public places! But I still like to be able to read whatever I want when I’m in those places.

I read on the Nook a lot and love it for night-time reading using my lighted NOOK cover. I also enjoy reading fan-fiction, long blog posts, and online stories on it. I use Calibre to format the content into epub documents and put them on my Nook for later bed-time reading, because it’s not just books I abhor reading on the computer.

I’m a huge fan of reading at night when I’m trying to settle down. :)

    I have to agree with you that eBook readers (I don’t have a Nook, but I do have Kindle) are probably going to change the way a lot of us read. My partner tells me she doesn’t like eBook readers, that they lack the “romance” of real books, and maybe she’s right. But I love words, and the more I use it the more my Kindle feels like a real book – even more so with a cover, so I have to open it just like a book. So much so that there are times I find I’m trying to turn the page with my finger!

    I thought I wouldn’t like having my books as ebooks, and to a degree, I don’t. Books that I collect (Amanda Quick, Kresley Cole, for instance) I find I still want to own in print. My collections seem incomplete when I have only an ebook version. But, for many other books, including my library books, I love reading as ebooks. In fact, I would love it if the book industry would start doing what the movie industry is already doing. Have a combo where you buy a book, get a digital version for a dollar or two extra… :) That would be the icing on the cake for me. I could have my collection and carry my ebook with me everywhere for quick rereading. But I can’t justify paying full price for a print book and then almost full price again for an ebook version. This is a marketing strategy publishers would be smart to take notice of, but who am I to tell them what to do?
