  1. Thanks. Quite a variety, which is nice.

    They work on NOOK! I think if you go to NookBooks, they should pop up by searching for the author's name or title. I know I downloaded a few when they had the Austen party.

  3. Got a couple! :) Still trying to figure out Immigrants, says it's not available as a nookbook, but maybe I can try to do it via another site, like kobo? Have a great day! Supposed to hit 40 here today!

  4. Hey HoldenJ,

    You can download the Immigrants from Sourcebooks, BooksOnBoard, and BooksAMillion for free and you should still be able to read them on your Nook. Just make sure you have an Adobe account.

  5. Downloaded Immigrants right from Sourcebooks. It was good practice, very much like the process of downloading from the library! Thanks again for the tips and info!

  6. I haven't gotten an e-reader yet. I love the look and feel of old school books. I'm awfully tempted by the iPad though. Would love to hear from users of e-readers about the pros and cons of their readers.


Thanks for leaving a note! I try to reply to all conversations!
