My husband surprised me a few years ago with a Nook for a Christmas gift.  I loved that device!  We can debate the demise of libraries and the love of feeling a book in one's hands, listening to the pages crinkle and rustle as they turn, one by one, and inhaling time and mustiness in the pages of old tomes.  But that is not what this is about..not now, anyway.

I don't like to buy books for my Nook that are over $10.  I love to read, but I am cautious about my purchases.  "Free Fridays" were always popular, and I did read a book about Ghengis Khan that I NEVER would have selected solely because it was free.

Since my iPad has both a Nook and a Kindle app, my original Nook has a new home with my youngest daughter.  My Nook and Kindle bookshelves are populated with many books, some free, some cheap, and some just a tad more expensive to purchase.

This weekend an email from Barnes and Noble popped into my Yahoo mailbox promoting a 50% off weekend for selected titles...on the Nook.  Yesterday morning I did some shopping.

I enjoy reading Alex Cross novels (James Patterson) and had wanted to read one of his newer adventures, but I didn't want to spend over $10 for it. 

The same could be said of a David Baldacci book.  Both were on sale for around $5.  Just a few clicks and they were mine!

 Then I saw the book Killing Kennedy by Bill O'Reilly.  I may not agree with the author and his views on some things, but I have heard good reviews of this book, and since I have to admit that I remember when JFK was assassinated, the book had piqued my interest.  And the price was similar to the other two.  K-ching!  Added!

Now I have three books awaiting my perusal.  Add them to my current selection that I am reading for an Online Bible Study, and my reading plate is quite full.

Update on the book on the Navy Seal that I began over Spring Break~~~  I read several chapters and it was just too depressing for me.  I stopped.  I usually don't quit, but the mix of relaxing at Myrtle Beach and reading that book just didn't mix very well for me.  Another time.....
