Ipod as an E-reader

A while back I blogged about how I’ve fallen in love with e-books. Since buying my first Nook, I upgraded to a newer version, the Nook Simple Touch. I loved both my Nooks, and the Nook Simple Touch won out over the original Nook for a couple of reasons. Firstly: it was smaller and lighter, allowing me to carry it in the cargo pocket of my shorts easily. Second: it had a better battery life. But now I find that both my Nook E-readers are sitting on the shelf and gathering dust. Why, you ask. Well, last fall I purchased an Ipod Touch 5th Generation. I bought it because I loved my Ipad and wanted a similar device I could carry everywhere I go. Also, I wanted it because of the 5 megapixel camera, so I’d have something to capture all those wonderful moments that come with being a parent. The little device has an HD screen on it, and I quickly discovered it was very pleasant to read on. Now I read all my e-books on my Ipod. Another perk is it is an audio player, so I also download and listen to audiobooks when my eyes need to be occupied by other task (i.e. dishes, cleaning, etc.).  Love my Ipod. It’s thinner and lighter than most cellphones, and it fits in my pocket and goes everywhere with me. Sorry Nook and all other e-readers–I think Apple has one-upped you here.


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.
