Literati $55, Today Only

Just a quick note for anybody looking for an eReader . . .

As I wrote a while back, we picked up two Literati eReaders from Bed Bath and Beyond, and we have been exceptionally pleased with them. I never thought Terry would use an eReader, but he's become a convert.

Today's Woot (click here) has the Literati for $49.99 plus $5.00 shipping.

This is a backlit reader, which I have found I prefer. I will be keeping my Kindle in case I want to read outdoors, but for inside, and especially at night, I prefer the Literati. This is a matter of personal taste, but we've both found it to be a good device.

I also like the fact that it has a color screen, and comes with a case.

The Literati has one other advantage over the Kindle, in that you can download books from your local library and read them on the Literati. The Kindle doesn't allow library books.

If you're at all interested in trying an eReader on the cheap, this is a good deal, so I thought I'd pass it on.

If I didn't already have a Nook, I would purchase the Literati just because it can be used for library books. Getting ebooks from the library has been extremely handy for us!

Thanks, I just went to the website and ordered one. I read Kindle books on my NetBook, but I don't like paying a lot for books. I usually try to buy used books, but occasionally will buy a Kindle Book. I like that I can read Library Books on this.

Glad someone could take advantage of this offer. I think you'll be pleased, we are.

Thanks for the reminder Kate...I almost forgot I had one LOL! Now that grandkids week is over, maybe I can finally get it set-up. It will be a good companion to my Kindle.
