First contest--Frankie is having a book giveaway. Not sure when it ends. Check out her hysterical vlogs while you're there. There is another book giveaway at the First Novels Club too (Frankie participates on this blog). So check it out after you read my post, or go and read it, then come back. Your choice.
Another contest at Paul Joseph Writes--A book giveaway of the The Great Lenore by J.M. Tohline. Looks like a great book. Paul writes a wonderful review about it. Ends June 6th.
Let me just say, I had a great time this weekend. Spending time with friends and family was great. If you are in Philly and need some close to authentic German fare (I'm talking food and beer. Oh and atmosphere), definitely try Brauhaus Schmitz or Frankford Hall or both. Both provided great times. I say no more, and no, I don't have pictures for you. **coughs** Lots of hypothetical stories.:)
In other news--I'm probably one of the only people on the planet who does not have a Kindle or Nook. I'll wait while you laugh at me. It takes me a while to give in to some things. I love holding a book. The smell of the pages and the beautiful colors on the covers make me happy. It's like a work of art on my shelves. Here's the deal. It's called room. I'm running out of room for my book collection. Yes, I could give some away, but a lot of them are close to me in one way or another.
My husband asked a while back if I wanted one of these reading devices and I stomped my foot, and said, "No way are you kidding me?" Now, after hearing how awesome they are, and realizing I can't have a library as big as my house, I'm considering one (kicking and screaming a little).Although, I still will buy books that I truly love. I can't stop completely, jeez. What kind of person do you think I am?
Here's my question (pretty obvious, I'm sure):
If you have one of these do you like it?
Which one would you recommend? Kindle 3 or Nook color?
Any advice when buying one?
How was your weekend and your goals?
My goals are to read a MS and finish writing my first draft. Okay, the first draft will most likely be finished next week, but I can dream.
Have a great day!
