Alas, there is a whiff of trouble in paradise. As much as I love Hektor, I've started flirting with another....
Yes, I'm attracted to Hektor's younger brother, nook the Simple Touch Reader. While it has the same e-ink technology as Hektor, it's all on one touch screen instead of having separate reading and touch panels. Incredibly lightweight, both devices have the same size screens. I know, because I measured (size does matter!).
The Simple Touch is faster, the battery lasts longer, and it's supposed to provide a more pleasurable reading experience. Seems to be made of sturdier stuff as well (younger men often are). So now I'm torn.... Do I stay with my first love, or move on to the new & improved model? Original classic vs younger, faster, longer lasting & more pleasurable (why does this sound slightly dirty)?
And if I do decide to bring him home, do I have to name him Paris? Hektor's younger brother? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
Barnes & Noble has upped the ante! Just found out that if I bring Hektor into a store and take little brother home with me, they'll throw in a SD card with free books! So very, very tempted now....
