There is something wonderful about holding and reading a book I really can't say I get the same feeling while reading my Nook....

    Awesome! I am a book lover too. Just can't seem to get used to my e-reader either (although it is handy to have my whole library with me at all times!). Congrats :)

    How true my friend. It a tactical thing; turning the crisp papers, and dog-ear it's corner. Congratulations on your fine win. Warm Smiles, Connie

    It seems everyone is either pro-tablet or pro-book. Personally I'm a more in-between kind of reader. I like the feel of a flipping through the pages of a book... but my Kindle Fire is nice, too, when I'm more "on the go". One thing I can say is that at least with all the gadgetry people are being more encouraged to read (which is the important thing in my humble opinion). Good couplet!

    Ha ha, I love it. I know what you mean, it is somehow not the same.
