I got hooked on the Nook, specifically the NOOKcolor. It gets my toe in the water of the Android system, I can download books at any WiFi site if I so choose, and I certainly like the ability to carry around multiple Tom Clancy novels with their backbreaking 1,000 page size in the palm of my hand. Having color makes reading magazines so much more enjoyable, once you subscribe to their electronic versions. Also, I didn’t want to buy a Kindle without personally using it first, which was impossible at the time I bought this unit. It’s a transitionary device, I think, but so far I am extremely happy with it and the number of free books and other publications out there is amazing. Barnes & Noble also offers a free book every Friday, so that’s a blessing, too.
