Let me start right off by saying - NO, they are not paying me to advertise or hawk their product. I am just passing on the word because I LOVE my Barnes and Noble NOOKColor! It is like the Kindle only, way, way, WAY, WAY better. Today, after wondering about it for weeks, with the help of my hubby, I figured out how to load my own jewelry photos into the photo file ON the NOOK, so now I have a professional slideshow portfolio of some of my best work right THERE! I can see myself using this as a tool when visiting art galleries and consignment shops around town - being able to show them my work right there - in beautiful clear color! I think I'm more excited about that part, than I have been about anything else. I was excited about it having FREE Pandora music when I first got it, and I downloaded a BUNCH of songs - but have not found myself listening to it yet - ever. I am on my 5th book - and have not paid over $5.00 for one yet. I have one magazine subscription that is $1.99 a copy compared to the actual newsstand cover price of like 7 or 8. The only thing this thing cannot do is make a phone call! I can even download WORD documents into it! This is a definite 2 thumbs up product in my book - pun intended! I'm having so much fun with it, everyday.
So if you're thinking about an ereader, consider getting one that gives you the option to do MORE than just read. You'll be addicted - I swear. Now I have a hard time splitting my time between it and the beads! LOL!
Bead and READ happy, everyone! TTFN
