A most awesome present

My birthday is coming up soon, and I have every reason to believe that my family has bought me a Nook. (It was that e-mail I got that said "Congratulations on buying a Nook!" that convinced me.)

At first, I was lukewarm to the idea -- sort of "Yeah, that's cool. I might use it." But ever since I got that e-mail, the excitement has grown. I can't wait to get my hands on it!

How about you? Which e-reader do you have? Are they as cool as I think they are? :-)

Happy Birthday, JoAnn!!! I'm so glad your family got you one. My daughter and a friend of mine have e-readers and love them.

Now for the selfish thought...you can buy my book this fall as soon as it comes out!! LOL!

(Still waiting for the release date.)

Happy Birthday!! I have a kindle. I love it. I have a niece who has a nook. She likes it a lot.

Happy Birthday! I heart my e-reader.

Happy birthday! I recently downloaded Kindle for Mac, so now I can take advantage of those crazy "99 cents, today only!" offers. Otherwise, I'm not yet sold. I find that I skim for meaning with ebooks, and that's not really why I read. But it's efficient!

JoAnn said...

Thank you, Morgan! I am loving the Nook -- I have a lot to learn though. :-)

JoAnn said...

Carla -- let me know as soon as you have your release date! I think I can pre-order it for my Nook. :-) (still can't stop grinning for you!)

JoAnn said...

Alicia -- I was considering a Kindle, but since my daughter works at B&N, I went with the Nook. :-)

JoAnn said...

Thanks, Heather -- I heart mine too!

JoAnn said...

Chris -- I know what you mean. It definitely is an adjustment. But I really like the possibilites it offers.

I'm very happy with my Nook B&W, not a color one. I love being able to download free books. I can't wait to buy Carla's book on my Nook!

:-)

I have a new Nook Color and I love it, although it definitely makes me impulse buy books more than I used to!

BTW, I have a couple of self-pubbed ebooks available for Nook. Just sayin. ;)

Hey Paula: I shall order them :-)
