You know how much I love my Nook HD+ tablet. It is wonderful. I use it for reading, games, news, newspapers, magazines, checking the weather, and even some writing. Because it is a tablet I put the Kindle App on it and read a book before I discovered the only problem I have with my Nook tablet: The only time I can read a book on Kindle when I have Internet access. There is no way I am going to give up my Nook tablet so I pulled out my Kindle reader, charged it up, and problem solved, for me at least.
Talking to a couple of friends of mine, on-line and in person, they are having the same problem with their tablets and reading apps. They just don’t want to work unless there is an Internet connection available. Those that have paid Internet options for the tablets, of course, don’t have that problem as much, but they are having problems here and there and are also pulling out their straight e-readers. Some of them are far more upset than I am because they don’t have just straight dedicated reader devices.
So what if you must have a dedicated e-reader. You already have one, usually, so what’s the big deal? Yes, I know about wanting to stream-line the electronic devices you have in your possession or using, but, the truth is, we aren’t there technologically, especially where reading is concerned. Most people are interested in apps and different tech things instead of being able to enjoy reading a book. This is the nature of society as it is right now. It will change soon enough, but that will be, possibly, a few years down the road, and I am OK with that. We don’t have to have everything NOW. We have, I have everything I need to read and to write with, and I have decided this is enough.
