I’m something of a re-reader. I am more than happy to revisit a story I have thoroughly enjoyed. So, not surprisingly, some of my reading resolutions include re-reading well liked books, but I am trying to add some challenges as well.

As the tablet tidal wave continues its deluge over the reading landscape, I am grateful for the existence of ereaders. Books are my first love, but e-ink has been easy on the eyes too, and dedicated ereading devices have done well to avoid the many distractions of email, internet, games, apps, etc.

Richland Library customers with Macs received a gift this season in the form of the 3M Cloud Library Mac App. Now Mac-users can use the app to browse Richland Library’s 3M Cloud Library eBook collection, download eBooks to their computers, and either read them on their screen or transfer eBooks to eReaders like the Nook and Sony Reader with the click of a mouse button. As a Mac-using, Nook-reading eBook-lover, I'd been looking forward to this for some time!
Full disclosure: I consider myself a bit of Luddite. Although I am quick to acquire skills necessary to use new technology, I tend to wait until several generations of a device have been released before jumping in to purchase a new gadget. Usually, my procrastination works out well: devices become cheaper, faster, and lighter.

I recently had the opportunity to spend some hands-on time with the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight. This lightweight, just-big-enough eReader not only provides the clarity of E Ink but also has a backlit display that makes reading anywhere a great experience. It also boasts a really responsive touchscreen and is comfortable to hold for long periods of time.
