Resisting eBooks and Colored Jeans . . . Until Now

Confession: I usually resist the latest fad for at least a couple years. Then when it’s seriously ooold news, I finally give in.

Like colored jeans. I just got my first (red) pair a couple weeks ago. (I really wanted a yellow pair, but that’s beside the point . . .)

Same goes for technology.

Confession: I’ve never read an eBook. Never.

But . . . my eBook, Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl, is on sale for just $2.99 through December 16!

That meant I needed to do my homework. Bear with me as I share what I learned:

Kindle is Amazon’s eBook reader.
Nook is Barnes & Noble’s eBook reader.
Even iTunes has an eBook reader called iBook!

Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl: On Her Journey from Neediness to Freedom is available on all three (KindleNook, and iBook) for just $2.99 through Monday.

I’m writing this silly post for two reasons:

  1. To let you know about this steal-of-a-deal, because you probably started reading eBooks (and buying colored jeans!) eons ago.
  2. To ask how you prefer to read. Are you an old-fashioned girl like me who enjoys breathing in the smell of a new (or old) book, or are you all about the ease of the eBook? If so, which reader is your fave? I’m curious.
