Hi Janis B
We have a nook. We have had it about a year. At first I just didn't like the thought of not having a book in my hand. I like the feel, smell and etc. of a real book. But we live a little over 1 hour from a bookstore of anykind. I am getting use the nook. I have read a few free ebooks and they do offer some new ones every friday. It is easy to use as I am not very computer savey. It is very easy to download books, easy to read, the font can be enlarged and barnes and noble has a friendly user website too.
I know a friend that has a kindle and she loves it.
Keep us posted what you get and if you like it.
Pauline, glad to hear you like your Nook. My husband bought one for me for Christmas and I haven't put it down yet. I like the free books from B&N and I have figured out how to borrow books from the library. I can sit and read all day and late into the night so I have read many books on it and I do love it. I had been thinking about it for a long time and thought I would miss the feel of a paper book, so I bought a nice cover for it and it feels like a book. I use the book light that I used to clip onto my paper books and just clip it onto the front of the case after I wrap it behind the Nook.I have a friend that has a Kindle and she loves it. My nephew is considering a Kindle but I decided on the Nook Wi-Fi as I didn't want fingerprints all over my screen with the Nookcolor touch screen.
I was wondering how many 'reading' hours you get off the battery charge. I'm recharging my Nook about every other day.
I have just finished reading, "Daughter of Joy" by Kathleen Morgan. It was a free download from Barnes and Noble for our nook. I just bought the other 3 in the series. They were onsale so I thought I should get them. I am anxious to get started on them.
I have never read any of her other books.
I love to read Max Lucado,,,an inspirational speaker,,,right now I am reading his book on:
"Live to make a difference" how God can use us to make a difference on other people lives...
how many of us don't care to make a change in others.
