Shannon Stacey

A new digital frustration

So I got my husband hooked on the nook and blah blah blah. You all know that. I set him up with books to read and the M-Edge Executive jacket and e-Luminator2 booklight.

And every few days I want to take that pricey little package and beat him over the head with it.

I only buy books for me that I want to read. Therefore I can open Stanza or the Kindle app and touch on any cover, title or author that strikes my fancy and start reading. And, since I wanted to read a book, chances are I remember a little about it.

But I’m also in charge of grabbing books for my husband and that’s where we’ll run into problems. I grab him a lot of freebie from B&N and…other places whose books require a little tweaking before going on the nook. I watch for sales on thrillers and, if I think he might like something, I’ll grab it.

So my husband will finish a book and then open the library on the nook, where he gets a list of titles. Just titles. Every single time he wants to start a new book, I have to pull up the Amazon app on my iPod Touch, search for each title and read the blurbs to him.

There’s gotta be a better way…
