When I was a kid, I loved to read and did it nonstop, especially over summer vacation. I could finish multiple books a week for sure.

It’s been a while since I’ve read at that rate! Now I’m lucky to get through a book every couple months.

So I was really excited to try the NOOK GlowLight Plus, Barnes & Noble’s eReader.

Of course, I had to channel my youth, and I immediately start reading Judy Blume’s latest book, In the Unlikely Event. It’s just one of more than 4 million books, magazines, and newspapers available!

Relaxing with a cup of Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea and the NOOK GlowLight Plus! | Hello Little HomeMy favorite thing about the new NOOK? It’s definitely the small size and light weight.

The NOOK GlowLight Plus features NOOK’s slimmest design ever. It’s light enough to carry in my purse, which makes it perfect for subway reading and traveling.

Another feature I love is the sleek, seamless design and aluminum body that makes the new NOOK as beautiful as it is durable. Perfect for someone like me who has a tendency to drop things!

The built-in ambient light makes reading equally as pleasurable in light or dark, rain or shine. I’ve been reading in bed more (no bright light to disturb my sleeping husband), and I can’t wait to tuck it into my beach bag next summer!

The new NOOK GlowLight Plus is also waterproof and dust-proof for worry-free reading anywhere, so of course, I had try it out in the kitchen.

I love trying new cookbooks, so I downloaded The Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker and got to work on a new recipe!

I usually drink my tea plain, but the addition of a little milk, maple syrup, and vanilla makes this Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea a delicious treat. It’s sweet and creamy with a hint of cinnamon.

The best part is that this wonderful tea only takes minutes to make.

So grab your favorite book and relax with a cup of this Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea!

P.S. Isn’t my cutest mug? I get so many questions about it! I bought it years ago from Starbucks, and I kind of live in fear it will break … ha ha. This Cable Knit Coffee Mug is similar.

Excellent blog — I also love my Nook! Currently, I’m trying to catch up on the Game of Thrones tome.

I love that the screen lights up! i have an e-reader that’s old and doesn’t light up, so I really, really love that!
