I'm doing a lot of reading; since getting the Nook over a year ago, you could say there's a renaissance of reading around here. The ability to check out library books from home is an amazing gift.
When I check out a digital library book, it's mine to read for two weeks. This gives me plenty of time to finish it. If it's a good one, three or four days is all I need.
I've also found it allows adequate time for Cliff to read the book after I've finished. When we went on our road trip, I started reading John Sandford's "Buried Prey" aloud, but I didn't even get a third of the way through it. I finished it yesterday, and now Cliff is at it. I'm sure I've read books by John Sandford before, but it's been a long time. Once the action started, this book held my interest just fine. It reminds me of the television show "CSI", only not so ridiculous.
Sometimes, as I'm reading a book, I'll say to myself, "Cliff would really like this."
I haven't been wrong yet.
This actually works out OK, since I do most of my reading in the morning before Cliff gets up or during the day when he's outside. He reads in the evening. I can't concentrate if the television is on, or if music is playing; I'm too easily distracted. Another problem is that in the afternoon and evening, I tend to fall asleep when I try to read.
So the sharing works out fine. Cliff reads when I can't.
Still, I think it would be nice if we each had our own Nook.
