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.....
