Catherine (cattymccat) | 754 comments I didn't get nearly enough books. lol Of course, if I got 30, I'd still think I needed 30 more.

I got these for Christmas:
Elixir (Elixir, #1) by Hilary Duff Chicken Soup for the Grieving Soul Stories About Life, Death and Overcoming the Loss of a Loved One (Chicken Soup for the Soul) by Jack Canfield In Her Shoes (Movie Tie-In) by Jennifer Weiner The Ruins by Scott B. Smith The Road by Cormac McCarthy A Thousand Cuts by Simon Lelic I Thought You Were Dead by Pete Nelson Encountering Heaven and the Afterlife by James Garlow

Not nearly enough YA fiction... lol

(I am of course thankful for what I got!!! I'm just playing around...)

I haven't read it yet, but I skimmed the first chapter a bit & it seems really well written.

Awesome.


Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) No one in my family really knew what to get me, so I got a nook color. =]

IT'S SO AWESOME!!! Although, I'll probably use my old one more since the back light on the nook color makes my brain hurt. -_-

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Oooo nice! My bday is in Feb and I'm asking for one. At first I wanted the K3, but since I already own a Nook original it just makes more sense to have the two devices that are compatible with each other.

How's the web surfing on it?


Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) You're gonna love it! It's super convenient to not have to use a book light for it, and the browsing is actually pretty seamless. Another gripe is that the battery runs down really fast.

Aside from the light, and the battery, I really like it a lot. OOH! And, it's touch screen!


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I might like it for reading in bed, since the clip on light sort of annoys me on my Nook.


Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) Gawd, I have to constantly change the batteries on that thing. Plus, mine is all grossed up because my cat chewed on it.

The backlight on the nook color just makes me go cross eyed after a little while, unfortch.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Change batteries on the clip on light?

Yeah, I couldn't imagine doing any long term reading on a backlit screen. I'm way too in love with eink.


Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) I've had to change the batteries on the clip on light like three times since I got it, which was probably like a year ago. Completely ridic.

Totally feeling you on the eink. I love the update that they recently came out with, where the page turns faster. =]

Download a free program from the net called Calibre. It will let you convert books to your mobi format. Then grab the link that I'm about to send you.

Sara706 | 3 comments I HAVE A KINDLE 3G WIRELESS TO HI-5


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) It's really hard to compare Nook color and Kindle because they're used for different purposes. Nook color is meant more as a multi-purpose device and less for a dedicated ereader. Nook original and Kindle are comparable (both have eink) and are both good devices. I've used both.

I always tell people to go to a Best Buy and test drive them both. You may prefer the slimmer and lighter K3 for convenience, or you may prefer the touch screen and color covers on the Nook. It's just preference.

message 32: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (cattymccat) | 754 comments So I got some of the books I had ordered with Christmas money today. I got Solid by Shelley Workinger off of the goodreads.com book swap & I didn't realize that I actually bought it from Shelley herself. So I get my copy today & there is a note on the cover about how it's an ARC, but the only difference is that the typo corrections haven't been made yet. She autographed the book for me & sent me a bookmark too. So I thought that was pretty cool! Especially since I only paid $3.48 for it! I also got Disney After Dark by Ridley Pearson, which I realize is for younger teens, but I love anything that has to do with Disney theme parks... I have like, 20 more books on their way! I'm a happy camper. lol

Solid (Solid, #1) by Shelley Workinger Disney After Dark (The Kingdom Keepers, #1) by Ridley Pearson
