Today, on the way to the swimming pool, my brother caught a picture of me reading in the car. That’s a nook, and it’s the first one I ever got. It was the Christmas present I felt most excited for, after outgrowing American Girl dolls.

Since then I’ve gotten two more recent versions of nook, but for some reason find myself using the oldest. Something about it just feels more honest–as if it were…
