I’ve been secretly coveting the Nook for awhile. First it was the Kindle, but the Nook has color. If you aren’t familiar, it is a fancy technological contraption that allows you to download 1,500 books, magazines and newspapers. Then you read them on the screen. I love books, so it is not easy for me to admit wanting this thing, but the idea of carrying around all those books on something that easily fits in my purse it pretty alluring.
Waiting at the doctor’s office? Read something on Nook. Have a few minutes left over on a lunch break? Pull out the Nook. Stopped at a light? Read some Nook. Ok, I’m kidding about that last one.
This ad, from the New Zealand Book Council reminds me what I love books. And it’s pretty cool to watch.[video:youtube:F_jyXJTlrH0]
I still want a Nook, though.
