Welcome to my blog, SCRIBBLING TO (IN)SANITY! First time here? I'm a romance writer who wants to believe most problems can be solved over coffee, a mixed drink or by anything covered in chocolate. I'm a believer in second chances and that it's always the right time to fall in love. As the saying goes, you're a guest in my house only once...then you're family. So I invite you to join the fun! I love comments but it's okay to lurk too - just know I'm glad you've found me and I hope you visit me again soon!

When the eReader dies...
I still have the original, black and white - non touchscreen, original model and it still holds a charge and works fine.
But, because I'm always lured by shiny and new...two years ago I put aside my basic model and switched over to the Nook Tablet. I immediately fell in love with the versatility, the crisp color and the touch screen.
Last week...it died.
Over the weekend, Hubby and I scoured the stores while I held the devices in my hand...seriously thinking of making the switch to the Kindle this time.
Then I found the Nook HD. The 10inch 32GB HD...
Immediately fell in love. (I know, I'm easy...)
Ok, It's too big to fit inside my purse, but it is really light.
I charged it up, entered my B&N account info and all my books and apps appeared. :) Yes, I did the happy girl dance.
I'll admit when I first got my Nook I wasn't convinced reading on an electronic device was going to work for me - I let that thing sit on my nightstand for weeks before I really embraced it and gave it a try.
Now? I don't go anywhere my eReader. It surprised me that I went for the larger model this time - and I admit I was a little nervous about it being bulky. I carried it around the store for almost an hour with my husband just shaking his head behind me. But, last night as I lay in bed and powered it up - I'm happy with my choice.
Are you happy with your eReader and what will you choose the next time your eReader dies?
