Not sure if this belongs in the Tech or the Book forum, so I took a shot here.
For Christmas, my wife bought me a B&N Nook e-reader which have since fallen in love with. Around Christmas it was running around $300, but the money I have saved so far on buying the e-books has already paid for it.
Today, I powered it up and found that a software update was available. After downloading the software I discovered that my Nook now has a web browser!! Totally cool if you ask me.
I have not had time to mess around with it to see if it is worth a damn, but I am looking forward to it.
The Nook is different, and sometimes I miss holding an actual book in my hands, but all-in-all, my experience so far has been exceptional.
