Dishing Details on Nook-Affairs...

The Barnes & Nobles Nook Color is out and drawing lots of looks from the ladies (and gents!) who already have a Nook in their pocket but want more from it. I don’t yet have an eReader but have considered how beneficial and enjoyable one would be given my love of reading. Imagine the example I could set for Maya by dedicating ‘down’ time, like time on the subway, or in waiting rooms, to reading with her even more. The Nook is just so portable…enabling me to take my reading materials as well as the children’s reading favorites anywhere we go! I have asked around about the Nook and by coincidence, my sister and my son’s teacher where over, with Nooks in their pocketbooks and  where willing to share the details of their Nook-Affairs with me in this video…

Jackie has a recent model black and white nook while Sam is sporting the newest in color nooks. Both talk about what they love about their nooks, what they can do, can share and what they are still figuring out. They both seem to agree that Nooks are a great solution for encouraging reading at all ages, including young children, and the portability of an eReader like the Nook just opens more opportunities for adults to share their love of literature with young minds anytime, anywhere.

I used to say I was having a "book-affair" when asked what I did last night (I went to bed with a good book!) ...now that I have Nook envy, I want to have a Nook-Affair too! I am really curious to know what tablet owners think about Nooks and whether it makes sense to invest in a Nook if you already own an iPad or another tablet…
