I think the Nook (or Kindle, etc) would definitely have some advantages, however, what has kept me from buying one is that I can buy traditional books (used) for much cheaper than ebooks. With the exception of classics, most of the ebooks I would buy cost not much less than a traditional book. I am frugal, and never buy new books, but always buy used from either thrift stores or online, where even with shipping I can get a book for less than $5. My husband and I recently placed an order for used books online and bought 8 or 9 books for about $20. That can't be done with ebooks.
