Question for ereader users...

 

Help! I have enjoyed my Nook Color for a few years and recently upgraded to a Nook HD+ 9" Tablet. I got a great deal and I'm really having fun with it. My mom got one too! But we are having trouble finding covers for them. Two years ago I found a nice package deal on ebay for my Nook Color that included a cover, 2 screen protectors, 3 rubber skins, ear phones and other wires, etc. It wasn't fancy but it had accessories I needed and it was all less than $20. For my Nook Tablet I think I want one that rotates vertically and horizontally and includes screen protectors and possibly a stylus or two as well. I've been looking for deals on ebay again but there are so many to choose from it's overwhelming! I just need to get these ordered so we can use our tablets more easily. Since there are so many smart and friendly readers here I wondered if any of you had some good suggestions?

NOOK Tablet For Dummies
Nook Tablet For Dummies - Corey Sandler Unfortunately, tablets and computers change so quickly that printed information can become outdated very quickly.... This must be taken into mind when reading this book! There are a lot of helpful tips for new users, like myself, but it only goes so far as things have changed since this book was written!

I very recently got a Nook and LOVE it! It is my very first e-reader of any type and it is definitely going to be increasing the number of books that I read. When I first got it, it did take a while to get used to as things do run a little differently than on a computer. These tablets are amazing and with their recent addition of the Google Play store, you are able to turn your Nook into a fully functioning tablet, great for all media, games, etc!

One thing that the Nook is missing that the Kindle has is a camera. Not a big deal for me, considering the price difference!

Anyway, this is NOT a review of my Nook, but rather a book review! lol!
Even though some things have changed since publication, it still is worth picking up for anyone who is brand new to e-readers or tablets in general. I was able to pick up a lot by just playing around myself, but there definitely are tips that I did not know.

Check it out!

Upgrading my ereader

I love my Nook Color and have had it for almost two years. I still prefer "real" books but it's so handy to travel with my Nook and have access to the many ebooks that are available now. My brothers and I bought our mom a Nook Simple Touch too but hers is just a black and white reader, not a tablet. It's lightweight, has a long battery life and she has loved it! I've been looking into upgrading but I'm tight with money and had no plans to get anything yet and there are so  many to choose from. I did notice the prices are dropping lately on the Nook tablets (as the prices usually do) and while flipping around the channels last month I noticed QVC had a smokin' deal. I've never bought anything there before, I've barely watched it, but this had my attention.


They had a 24 hour sale on Nook HD+ tablet (9" 32 GB). It was marked down from $340.00 to $170.00. That was compatible with other places that were also marking them down to close to that price at $180.00 but it was the 16 GB. So with more space this was a better deal. They also included an extra charger and $143.00 worth of apps and magazines and you could pay for it over 5 payments. Wow! I wanted to order it right then but I didn't. I went to bed and checked in the morning. I thought it they were sold out it wasn't meant to be. The ad was still there and the sale ended at midnight. Hubby said to order it but I tried to talk myself out of it. Then I told my mom to see if she was interested. She was and at 11:00 p.m. with 59 minutes to spare we ordered two of them. It was painful to push that last button to make the sale complete but it was exciting!!

I decided to get another Nook because I've enjoyed the experience with Barnes & Noble and I can keep everything I already have on my account. I now have access to my books and games on both Nooks and much more storage. It was definitely a terrific upgrade! I am having way too much fun with the games and apps now. So far it's been a great purchase and I use it every day. I still have to get a cover I just haven't found what I want yet. For my Nook Color I found a nice deal on line that included a cover, screen protector, extra cords, etc. It was very inexpensive and has held up well. I just need to hurry up and pick something and get it ordered.

I'm in no way affiliated with QVC or B&N, this is just my experience. Is anyone else familiar with this tablet? Do you have an ereader?
