This contest is over. The winner was Eva B. and she has been contacted, thank you for all who entered.
I’ve been on the road more than I have been home the last two months, and one thing I am finally getting thing hang of is learning how to pack everything I need for my trips in only carry-ons. Gone are the days when I needed great big suitcases to get me where I was going.
I’m even learning how to travel without a laptop or a big camera, but for today I want to share this travel essential with you! I received a NOOK by Samsung to try out and share with you here. It couldn’t have come at a better time. It came in the mail the night before I had to fly home to deal with a family emergency.
I needed to pack light and I don’t really have any idea how long I will be gone. I had never used a NOOK before, but I knew I could load it up with things to help keep me occupied and ways to take a mental break when nights got long at the hospital.
It has done all that and then some!
In the night before my flight, I rented and downloaded two light-hearted comedies to watch on my flights.
Since i downloaded them before I left, I can watch them anytime at my leisure for 30 days, but once I start the film I only have 24 hours to finish. For $4, I was able to watch new releases whenever and however I wanted to on the plane. Super Awesome!
Next, I downloaded several books I have been wanting to read because I knew I would be spending a lot of time in waiting rooms and just generally sitting around waiting on people during my trip. I finished one book my first two days here and will finish my second book tonight.
Instead of bringing tons of hardcopy books with me, I have my own digital library at my disposal.
And when my eyes tire from reading too long, I also have a few digital magazines on there to get my creative juices flowing again (Digital magazines are my favorite!!) and even a few fun games I can play when I just need something to take my mind off of everything. Did I mention the battery life on this thing runs circles around all my other devices? Seriously, I didn’t even charge it for the first 3 days and I was using it almost constantly!
The tablet does so much more though, I have sent some important work files to myself via Dropbox, reserved a rental a car while I sipped a hot chai from Starbucks, and even live-streamed a conference I was scheduled to speak at this weekend but couldn’t since I had to drop everything and go. It was almost as good as being there.
