Blasphemous

Tell me, is it morally wrong of me to suddenly want a Nook? Not just want but really want? I know. I'm a literary purist snob. I love the smell of dusty book covers and old leather. I love the feel of a worn and loved book cover. There's something comforting about the weight of book. It's reassuring and exciting. They're old friends that can remind you of moments in the past. Whenever I look at my bookshelves that are crammed full, overflowing with delightful stories and old friends, I can't help but sigh in contentment.

And yet...I really want a Nook. I hang my head in shame....

If you were to get an iPad, you could use one of these.

Dear Kelly - There's absolutely, positively nothing wrong with wanting a Nook/Kindle/iPad for reading. Reading is reading - it's spectacular that you do it - never, ever hang your head in shame. Just be sure to still buy a few books, too ('cause books are books, and we all need us some books) - and be sure to buy independent!

Absolvingly - Jen, an independent bookseller
