I finally did it. I bought an e-reader...Barnes and Noble's Nook. I made the decision mainly to enable me to download from my library. That limited me to a Sony e-Reader or a Nook. They do not support Kindle at this time. The library doesn't have a large inventory, but has a variety of books across all genres.
After a phone call to Barnes and Noble and the library, I finally got the Adobe Digital Editions to recognize the Nook. After that it was simple...just drag and drop. I love it. The Nook is so much easier to handle than a book. Also, I can slip it in my purse and take it with me to the doctor/dentist office. It makes waiting go much faster!
The first book I downloaded was "Lowcountry Summer" by Deborah Benton Frank. I have read 40 pages, more or less. This is not the genre I normally read.
I discovered that I prefer my usual...
Regency Romance, Nora Roberts' Contemporary Romance and Mystery.
I'll read a few more pages. I like to give a new book at least 50 pages to see if it captures my attention. If not, I give myself permission to let it go.
