Nook

Many months ago, my 16 gig MP4 player died. And one of the functions I most miss from it was the ability to read text files. Sure, the screen was tiny and hard to read, but I got more reading done with it (reading free fiction stories1 from the Internet) in one week than I do from paper books in three months. I don't know why this is, it just is.

Today I started looking at e-readers. The best one I've found so far, for cheap, is Nook First Edition. It doesn't do text files, but there are programs one can get for free online to convert text files to PDFs or ePub, which Nook can read. So that's not a problem. And for as cheap as $20 on eBay (with only $7 shipping), I'm going to start saving my pennies. Of course, I also told my parents about it, so maybe they'll get me one for my birthday and I can use those saved pennies for a nice staff, instead. (I checked out staffs at Moon Shadow earlier, and he had some for as cheap as $15. But the one I most fancied was a little over $17.)

And not only is Nook First Edition an e-reader, it also has wifi and a web browser and games, so I could use it in place of my laptop when I go out and about! I really really want one of these!

Anyway, wish me luck in getting a Nook!

1 = A mix of PG fanfics, free original stories people posted, and porn stories. :-D
