I’ve been spending more and more time reading on my Nook.
I know (in my head) that it isn’t the same as reading a dead tree book… and a lot of time it is more expensive buying digital copies of the book than the paper copies (because, I guess, it is cheaper for the publishers to print on paper and ship and all of that… than it is to put books out is DRM versions of electronic digital copies… and that annoys me a WHOLE lot because the nook is WAY lighter than a paperback even, let alone a hardback… and I can carry all 4 of the books that I’m currently reading with me all the time (I get in a mood to read something… and my moods change… the only exception is the one that I’m reading for the book club at work… Nickle and Dimed… that one I’m reading because of the book club).
I splurged on a book earlier this week (pay day) that was $13. I usually keep my book purchases to under $10 and then the more expensive ones only by authors I really read a lot of, like Stephen King. The splurge this week? Bucolic Plague by Josh Kilmer-Purcell (Beekman Boys). I’m so enjoying reading this book. I’m going to have to buy (after another payday… after I’m done with this one) his other books in Nook format… he writes so vividly and so real. It’s great to read. It makes me a little more homesick that I’ve been anyway (it is fall… central Texas is SO not like Western PA this time of year. Well… ever… but especially in my head this time of year… ). This book is set in up-state New York… back east…
I’m going to be sad when the book is finished… I will have to read about how Josh was a drag queen (his earlier book)… maybe it will convince me more what mom has been telling me… I need to get my story to a broader audience…..
