I am so thankful for my Nook. I love to read and being able to read on my Nook (especially while nursing) is so much easier than balancing a book. It is much easier than taking a stack of books with you and I can read my favorites over and over again without damaging the binding or bending pages. I have read a ton of books on it, but have never bought any of them. It is the my most favorite gift ever!
