Guess what? Your resident cheapskate has bought herself a NookColor. That was $250 that I am most certainly glad that I spent.

I had originally wanted to get an iTouch 4th generation off of ebay, but honestly, it's not the greatest fit for me. There was never any gadget as perfect for me as this "reader's tablet." It wasn't as expensive as an iPad, there is a limited marketplace of Android apps. In fact, the general construction is much like a droid. But then, it has digital access to Barnes and Noble books. Which is wonderful. ;)

So, now that I have this Kindle/small iPad, I need to know of some things to read. I didn't have much time for free reading over the school year, and didn't even look into much of a summer reading list.

Any ideas? Please comment and tell me!

Good to see you blogging again; and congrats on your new Nook! :) I haven't done a ton of reading lately either. The last page-turner I read was "The Man Who Was Thursday" by G. K. Chesterton--maybe you've read it before? The ending is weird, but it's quite an exciting book!

I enjoy reading just about anything by Gilbert Morris. Also the Restoration series by Terri Blackstock is an excellent read.:)

Pray for Bama, everyone.

God bless,

Oh, I sort of want a nook. But I really enjoy turning the actual pages :)

And I love the Prydain series.
Also, I love poetry such as The Highway Man, stuff like that.

I want an iPad soooo bad! Wouldn't it be great for traveling? I mean, come on. you like historical fiction? A few years ago I read a bunch of Lynn Austen's books. They were just okay but made nice fluffy summer reading.

I highly recommend any and all of Leslie Ludy's books. She is, by far, my all time favorite author.

Most of my reading this summer will be school reading so, yeah. I know what I'll be reading. :D
