Still completely infatuated with my Nook, and also with the Hennepin County Library. As of today, HCL has 12863 different ebook titles in the system. And many of those books have more than one copy.
When I got my nook on Black Friday last year I was expecting to have to purchase the majority of my books because while the nook supports the Overdrive Library system, HCL only had about 800 different titles available. I was considering buying a $15 membership to the Free Library of Philadelphia, but figured I'd wait until I ran out of things to read. FLP had around 4000 or 5000 titles at that time. Apparently they aren't buying new ones at the same rate as HCL, because they're only at about 5800 now.
I ♥ my local library!!!
Between the diverse selection from the library and the authors that I'm still buying, I have yet to run out of stuff to read.
I'm currently at over 60 books read just this year alone, and I'm totally loving the fact that I've fallen in love with reading again. It's not that I ever fell out of love, it just wasn't convenient. I'd run out of things to read because I wasn't going to the library regularly enough.
Now, we just need to get publishers to start giving you a free ebook version when you buy the hardcover like movies started doing w/the free digital download when you buy the DVD.
There's some stuff I will still buy the actually dead tree version of, but I'm not paying twice to get it in ebook also!
