A Nook and a Stack of Books

As I wander through one of my favorite books stores, I ponder the plight of the bookstore as we know it.

I love to support chains such as Barnes and Noble, plus the small town local bookstores such as The Clinton Book Shop in Clinton, New Jersey. There is a place for all types of book shops and electronic readers as well. I have both a Nook and a stack of books. I don't think I am alone in this do you?

I read under all types of circumstances: poolside, in the doctors office, on the beach, in the airport. Each situation calls for a different device.

Has reading gotten this complicated or do I have a need for both the electronic reader and the physical book?

There are certain authors whose books I will buy with never a thought of downloading one of their books. Anne Rice, Stephen King, Jo Nesbo, John Connolly come to mind. Other authors are only a download and I guess as a writer, I don't mind if a reader chooses to download Immortal Obsession or Blood Tears.

To each his or her own, as long as books are bought legally and read. That is what matters.
