From the time I was a kid, I have always been a huge reader. When I commuted on the LIRR to NYC, I would read on the train and I usually went through books faster than I could get my hands on them. Lately I find that I have periods where I am constantly reading and can knock out a book in a few days and other times when it can take me 6 months. Last year, during one of my crazy reading phases, my husband bought me a Nook e-reader from Barnes & Noble for my birthday. I have to say that although I was unsure at first and thought that I would miss the act of turning actual pages, I really, really love the e-reader. There are many reasons, but one is that it is so easy and portable and another is that I can download books from the library from the comfort of my own home (most libraries have e-books available for download, so check with yours).
