My 30th Birthday Present

Greetings, longtime readers of Short Schrift. I hope that all of you have been following my shenanigans over at Snarkmarket, which consumes most of my blogly energy. For a little while, I was using Short Schrift as a links-and-quotes diary, but that function now is largely served by my Twitter account.

What I foresee for Short Schrift is that it will become essentially a blog about my life, featuring things that don't fit in to the admittedly wide purview of Snarkmarket. This is such a post.

Tuesday is my 30th birthday. I'd like to buy a Nook e-reader. I'd been setting money aside for it -- okay, I'd been setting it aside for a Kindle -- but I've recently been in a bad accident that's forced me to take the semester off of work. So, I've asked family and friends if they'd be willing to pitch in to collectively buy the Nook as a birthday present. I figure if we can get 13 friends to pitch in 20 dollars each, we're home. My buddy Kelly Bennett suggested setting up a Paypal donation button for this purpose, so that's exactly what I did.







This is here purely as an offer, for folks who wanted to find a way to participate in this but didn't have a better way. Most readers of this blog have never met me, nor do they have any business buying me a birthday present. But, I figure - what the heck. Anything is worth a shot.

I'm curious--why the Nook and not the Kindle you originally wanted? I don't think you've elucidated your personal take on the differences between the two, though admittedly I'm still catching up on your deep well of snarkposts.

The catchpa for this comment is meshani, which I feel should be a word, or at least a tribe in a fantasy novel.

Let's see - I know I wrote down all of these reasons somewhere! The most relevant post is probably "Books nowhere/books somewhere. I also like the touchscreen navigation (again, with the broken arm, I think it'll be easier to one-hand it), PDF support, the fact that B&N already has a good reader client for the Mac (and the iPhone)... And, the one e-book I've shopped at both stores so far was cheaper at B&N!

But the simplest answer is that the Nook hadn't been announced before I was hurt. So the Kindle was the only thing to save for!

D'oh, can't seem to get PayPal to work from my end... Happy Birthday though! I ordered a nook for my birthday too :).
