NOOK* for PC: Books and So Much More
Technology is getting smaller (phones excluded – their screens are getting bigger), and more importantly for readers like my wife and me, it’s getting lighter. There’s nothing quite like packing for travel and realizing you’re not going to snap your shoulder in half in order to bring your current book, your backup book and your backup backup book on your travels. Yes, three books minimum (it’s a long flight from CA to NY). What if I don’t like the book I have? Or what if I lose it? Or what if it spontaneously combusts? You need backups and backups to your backups. No I am not a hoarder.
With the NOOK for PC app, my family and I carry our library in our laptops. We download books for us, and books for our son, and books for our books. I exaggerate. Maybe. I’m able to share my favorite titles with friends, and even highlight my favorite passages and add personal notes.
My wife is all about non-fiction. I go for anything with an adventure in it. My son can’t get enough of the Little Golden Books*; and yes, the app has the same titles I read as a kid. I recommend downloading this app, especially as the colder weather begins to creep in and holiday travel looms. And please, let me know your recommended e-book titles – especially for kids!
