Addicted is one word I would use to describe myself. Addicted to reading Twilight. Not just the first book either, but all four books. I read Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn over and over. I’m on round five or six, I’ve actually lost track. These are very big books, and if I had to hold the book, my hands would ache. I have arthritis, but I love to read. There were a few years that I would only read for about 15 minutes at most before going to bed because my hands would start hurting.
Then, came the e-books.
Now, I can read the books over and over again, finish one of the books and jump directly into the next book. Someone has to actually remind me to go to sleep.
Which brings me to what would be my favorite mommy time kind of day?
I would love to spend the day reading and not too long ago I did. I decided to take a break from my twilight obsession and I downloaded a new book (new to me at least). I downloaded Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins it took me about a week to read the first book then the second two, Catching Fire, and MockingJay I read in 3 days. I could not put my reader down, not even during the day. I sat on the couch with my ereader in hand and read for hours. I even like to read in the bath tub (but that’s just between us ok?)
The Barns & Noble Nook Color is an amazing way to spend your mommy time. Sit down, read a book, read a magazine, read a news paper, read a website or blog post. I mean, I love the way my blog looks on the nook color. The Barnes and Nobel Nook Color makes websites look more crisp and clearer then the iPad does.
But perhaps you might think of letting the kids play with it and you do something you really want to do. The kids story books are easy enough for the kids to do on their own. Check out Zoe and Miles in this video using the nook! Now this video is not the best quality. I had some lighting issues and a 2 and 3 year old that wanted their turn in the spotlight. So watch and enjoy!
Other Nook Color Features:
I love listening to Pandora
I love playing sodoku or the crossword puzzles
I love the color touch screen and that it remembers my place if I put the book down for a while
I love that I can share my reading experience from the Nook Color over social media such as twitter and facebook.
