As a side note, this is why we got an eReader and not a Nook. It doesn't really have anything to do with the mod, but I thought I would mention it in case anyone cares. My wife was on the fence for a long time about getting an eReader. She loves her books, and didn't know if she would miss the feel of a real one. However, packing multiple books every time we go somewhere was getting to be a hassle. She had a few reasons for not wanting a full tablet, and I agreed with her on all of them.
- Battery life is much longer in an eReader than a tablet.
- The eInk display is visible in bright light; as opposed to a typical LCD which would have to have its brightness on maximum to be seen, draining the battery even more.
- She only wants it to read books. Every person we know with a tablet who says they are going to use it read any format of book always ends up wasting time with stupid games or refreshing their email for an hour instead.
- It has a built in light to allow reading in the dark which doesn't hurt your eyes like staring at a bright LCD.
- We have smart phones, why waste money on a tablet?
