For Mother's Day the FFP and the boys got me a Nook from Barnes and Noble. The Nook is an eBook. Although I love the feel of paper in my hands, the feel of turning the page, the glance of the page number before closing the book for the night, this is almost as good. I adore her so much, I named her "Mini Me". She has to be as much of a "bookaholic" as me to store such fantastic reads all in one place, like me and the thousands of books my husband is forced to try and ignore because they are piled on nearly every surface of our house. I am even an avid used book store fiend and library lover to keep books from accumulating... yet they still do! One of favorite features about the Nook is that she lets me "LOAN OUT" certain books for up to two weeks! I am not able to read the book while it is in one of my contacts possession just like a real book but my Aunt in the Bay Area 150 miles away had no problem getting the book I lent her without even going to the mail box. I <3 WiFi.
Here I will list books I have on Mini Me, if they are available for loan (Lend it) or already out (On Loan) or just a little info about how much I liked or didn't like it. I also love that you can read the first chapter or two of books to get the feel before buying. I'll let you know which ones of those I have too.
Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris (On Loan) to Aunt Sandy
Little Women by Lousia May Alcott ($1.99) One of my favorite books ever and it was FREE to me with my Nook!
The Dangerous Dimension by L. Ron Hubbard this book was featured on this weeks Freebie Friday so even if it is awful it didn't cost me anything.
The Complete Works of Jane Austen in this order Emma, Lady Susan, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility
Dracula by Bram Stoker This came free with my Nook too although its normally $1.99. I've always wanted to read this! Maybe only when the FFP is home to protect me though.
I have a few Samples that I downloaded to see what they are like. Samples usually give you a chapter or two of the book to get you interested.
The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan (same author as Percy Jackson and the Olympians) if Blondy likes it I'll go buy the book so he can read it himself.
The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. I loved The DaVinci Code, and Perception Point. Not so much Angels and Demons but I need to reread it. I am pulled towards those Free Mason type and creation vs. evolution type of mysteries too.
