    well, I still read paper books (not giving them out free on Amazon as far as I know!) - just finished "Peacock Spring" by Rumer Godden. I generally like her books.

    Right now I am engrossed in John Grisham. I just finished " The Pact" by Jodi Picoult. Our library just had a book sale and I picked up several different authors.

    A great free site is Pixelofink.com. I have about 50 downloaded on my Kindle. They send you a list of 5-10 free books by email everyday.

    Anyone know of free books for the Nook? I just finished listening to Jeffery Archer's "The Sins of the Father" (second in a series) I didn't read the first book, didn't know about it, and this book ended with a cliff-hanger, to be continued in the next book.....I then discovered it won't be released until 2013.....sigh...why did I get so involved???? Anyway, it is a good read.

    Nook free books

    BN has a section for free books on the Nook along with Free Fridays. Free Fridays are hit or miss as to good books, but I have gotten quite a few. You can borrow books from your Nook friends too for free.
    I am reading the Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. It is very good!

    Kristen Hannah is also very good, anything by Jodi Piccoult, Lee Childs, or James Patterson. I'm currently reading a new author to me - The Island, by Elin Hilderbrand.

    I live in a small town. (pop is 450.) We have a free lending library run by 4 volunteers. It is only open two days a week, but we have 2 1/2 walls of bookcases. Right now I am reading a lot of "who dunnit's" I usually have about 5 or 6 books going home with me on the days I am there working. smile

    I like mysteries and historical fiction. Purchased a Kindle awhile back thinking it would save me trips to the library..but not so...the authors I like to read are not freebies from amazon-or available as ereaders from library, so i still order and pick up "real" books from my library.....I am told a lot of the larger publishers are not keen on offering ebooks for "just to be read" as the $$$ is not there..and I guess libraries have to pay some source to have ebooks available and a lot of them are not ready or due to budget able to pay....so library, library sales, garage, estate sales are great...we also have a used book store in our "little" town and can exchange books there at very reasonable prices...or no cost if exchange works out.....funnnnnnnn

    So true.
    I bought a Kindle thinking it would save money, not so, the books are just as much or more than printed books.
    When I lived in the city there were many used book stores to shop at.
    Now Im in the country so bought a Kindle, my mistake. It is cheaper to just order books from Amazon where you can get used books cheap.

    I am wondering if Nook and Kindle are compatible - can you get a book that will go on either one? Or is it like VHS and Betamax?
