I don’t want to ‘dis the NOOK, it is really a fabulous little invention! It’s really ME! That’s right, I’m admitting it. I know my son showed me the whole magilla, all the steps on how to download the books from the library and I swear I was paying attention, but I have no recall. Either that or nothing works the same way again, after he leaves, I swear!
The reason I like the whole idea of the downloading of books from the library is that the books are FREE and at the rate I read it is an extremely good idea otherwise I can’t imagine the amount of money I would rack up buying books. I usually go through a book in a day or two, so at $9.99 a pop imagine how easily it would add up to a small fortune before you even realized it? So, trying to download the books from the library sounds like such a good idea…yeah, in my head. Too bad I can’t get it to work.
Yesterday I wrote a blog about how inept and technologically challenged I am. Well, thank goodness my son happened to read my blog and he said he’ll help me! Yay! So, now the thing is waiting for him. Hmmmmm…. we’ll see WHEN he get’s here, how long I’ll be jonesing for a book, without trying to rush him over here, it’s so hard being a Mother without being a pain in the ass, too!
Anyway, he did say he’ll help me & even make me a video to show me HOW to do this process…he’s a treasure…. it must be a trial dealing with a “technologically challenged” needy Mother!
Other than that I enjoy reading the NOOK and I am getting used to the use of the rest of it.
If anyone else received it for Christmas, let me know how you like it.
