Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Ebook?

I've often wondered about the people that say they'd never read an ebook. I wondered about myself for awhile, because I really fought the technology.

I did that with mp3 players for along time too.

I tried ebooks last spring. I read one on my computer. It turned me off of them for quite awhile. There's nothing comfortable about reading a book on a desktop. I tried another one on my netbook. Nope, didn't work for me there either.

Then I discovered Net Galley.

I bought a Nook, and I haven't looked back since.

That hasn't stopped me from buying print books. I love both. But I really love the opportunity to read indie authors, and in most cases, you can't find many indie's in print.

Oh and I love reading on my Smartphone too!

There really isn't anything to be afraid of. Ebooks are awesome!

I absolutely love my NOOK. And I don't mind reading on my iPhone with the app if I am somehow without something to read.

I am still resisting the e-book. I have an iPad and it just doesn't thrill me to read on it. I may break down and buy a reader in the near future,but for now I am still a die hard book in hand kinda gal!

I agree! I love my Sony. I do still read a lot of regular books. But I enjoy being able to toss my e-reader in my purse and it doesn't take up much room.
