Reader? Nook? That's all of the electronic readers I can think of. I'm sure there are more out there. Anyway, does anyone have one? How do you like it? Pros or cons?

These things fascinate me; however, I'm not sure how I would like one as opposed to actually holding a book. Plus having to buy all the books to download is a big negative for me since I borrow my books from the library.

Nope -- give me a good old fashion book any day! I absolutely hate reading off of a screen.

opps. I'm buying a Kindle in a few weeks. I personally can't wait. I don't expect it to totally replace reading a "real" book but I see a lot of pros for it also. Cheaper-faster-storage. Kindle has so many free or really cheap books- are they the ones I'm dying to read, no although some of the classics I am looking foward to but even the new ones are cheaper- so at the rate I read it will pay for itself before too long. It would be different if my town had a library that had more books then I do! But I can't keep buying all the books I read- our house is going to explode.

So... I'm crossing to the dark side as soon as I get the $$ together

Let us know how it is when you get it. It is a great concept but I just don't think I can read off a screen. I was reading on the computer today and now I have such a big headache!
