Nook: What is the future for the ebook?

I recently bought a Barnes and Noble Nook–not wanting to see the death of the paper and ink, but needing the benefits the electronic format provided. I wanted to be able to carry a stack of books with me everywhere I go, without actually carrying a stack of books. I’m in love with my Nook and fear I shall never buy another book in any other format. I’m a YA writer and need to read as much as possible–the Nook is significantly increasing number of books I’m able to read. I tried the Pandigital e-reader, the newer e-paper version. It was too slow and froze up on me, so I returned it. I chose the Nook over the Kindle because of the free books available at the Nook store that were not available through Amazon.com.  Mine is the least expensive Nook, black and white screen (e-paper) with wi-fi only, why? Because the color Nook has a backlit monitor that eats up the battery life and causes eyestrain. I avoided the 3G feature, because wi-fi is available all over the place and I didn’t see the point of paying the extra money. The books I have purchased are stored on the Nook while I read it and are always available on the B&N webiste. If I lose my Nook, I don’t lose my books. I love it!

About nwharrisbooks

Born and raised in a small town in north Georgia, my imagination evolved under the swaying pines surrounding my family's log home. On summer days that were too hot, winter days that were too cold, and every night into the wee hours I read books. My face was rarely seen, always hidden behind a binding. I was nurtured on fiction. Now it is my turn to create some of my own. I live in sunny southern California with my beautiful wife and two perfect children (I may be biased). I write like I read, constantly. I studied anthropology at UCSB and medicine at SUNY Buffallo.
