I've been a lifelong reader and always loved the look and feel of books, and the scent of libraries, so when ereading devices first hit the market, I was not first on the bandwagon to get one. However, I received a Nook Color on my birthday two years ago and I haven't looked back. My vision has worsened over the years so I always had to buy Trade's or hard cover editions and this got to be quite expensive. Now I can adjust the font and this has transformed my reading experience. Plus I love the convenience of being able to download a book from anywhere, anytime, even during the middle of a snowstorm.
