The Turn Around: eReader?

“The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty.”
~Pablo Neruda

Wednesday Hump Day sounds funny, but like an out and back run it marks the turn around to the work week. Today will be a short post, hopefully with some follow up in the coming weeks. I am thinking of getting an eReader. Kindle is all the rage, but a co-worker suggested the Nook. My FB friends think an iPad is the way to go if not sticking with the old fashion book/library route. So what do you think? I have my laptop which isn't even a year old yet. I also own the newest version of the iPhone. What do I want an eReader for? Books. I have been in a book club for 2 years and feel that my commitment has warranted consideration of an alternative reading approach.

Should I get an eReader? If so, which would you recommend and why?

Thankful Three
  1. For a focused day at work. I am starting to think my coffee is was sets the tone for a successful day. 
  2. For dinner with the in-laws. 
  3. For the marathon training episode of biggest loser. I think I am ready to register for my next one now. Not just Biggest Loser motivation, but check out P's race recap of CIM, it's so motivating.

P's race recap of CIM also has me considering signing up for that race. Plus, my coach always has great results with her athletes that run that race!

I can't help you on the e-reader thing. I am too old-school. I just love reading books! I love the feel, the ability to take notes in them if I feel like it. I guess I am an old lady!

My son as the Amazon. It's easy to read, you can surf the web - although slow and it holds a ton of books. I would only recommend it for adult though because it seems many of the kids books, you cannot get on it.

I haven't watched BL yet, it's on my DVR for tonight and I can't wait. I love it when they run the marathon, it totally makes me cry. Oh, wait, I always cry when I'm watching BL!
I have zero experience with any of those readers, but I think I would go iPad because it can do so many other things.
