E-readers, not as E-Z as I thought.
For the love of all that is modern and convenient, why can't I buy an E-book? I own an E-reader (a lovely, shiny Nook). I've owned it for almost a year. And in that time I have not purchase one single E-book. Not one!!! As of right now, my Nook contains free books from the Gutenberg project and Google books. I have the entire works of Plato (my husband read them, not me), selected works of Mark Twain, my own novels, about 10 E-books that my husband purchased on our Barnes and Noble account to read on his droid (but have I read them? Nooooo), The Bible, and The Book of Mormon (yes, I'm one of those Mormons; no, I don't smoke; yes, I drink [just not acohol]; no, my husband does not have any other wives [I know you didn't actually think he did]; and yes, I am allowed to dance [but probably shouldn't]).
Anyway, back to the subject. What is my problem? I've been trying to figure it out. I mean it's not like I write my manuscripts on typewriters, or drive a horse and carriage to the market, or heaven forbid, wash my dishes by hand. Yet here I am, like a sucker, still turning my own paper book pages. I need help. So here is my request. Please tell me the very best book you've read recently, a real page turner that you absolutely couldn't put down. Make your case and I will buy my first E-book or e-book or ebook (maybe if someone could finally decide the correct spelling I would've bought one by now). I NEED your help, you beautiful, literate people.
