By now, I’m sure you all know that I love my Kindle.  I mean, LOVE it.   But I do also own a Nook.  Which I rarely used.  Except for now. I recently learned that if you live in the US, you can borrow books from your public library for free, as long as you have a library card.   All without leaving home.   The borrowed book stays on your Nook for two weeks.  Not too bad, right?  And since I read anywhere between five and ten books a week, this one is sure to save me some money.  I finally downloaded the software to use this program this week, and I’ve already read three books for free.   So if you have a Nook, contact your local library to see if they participate in this program.   I think that e-readers are getting better and better. 

Have a great weekend!




  1. so cool you can "borrow" books -
    who would have ever thought years ago this is how we would be reading books today!!
    I don't own one but I am sure thinking about it!!!

  2. that is really a great program. free books are great. especially when you read as much as you do. anything worth sharing?

  3. Thanks for you visit and kind words. I usd to read a lot, but since blogging I do not read as much. I get mine from the library.

  4. Oh my! Between five and ten books a week? I'm super impressed, Stephanie!
    Hope your weekend will be a lovely one. Hugs and love.

  5. Seriously? 5-10 books a week? That's incredible! I read alot, but certainly not that much! I must admit, I read way more now that I have my Nook color! Love the thing. So does my 4 year old daughter who is on it now...which is the only reason I am checking blogs because, lately, I've been reading lots!! I am stuck on old-timey lady books, like Charlotte Bronte's Jane Erye and lots of Jane Austen. Well, toodles to you! Until next time...

  6. Thanks for this great tip! I have a nook, but I had no idea they offered this service. I'll be checking to see if my library participates. I can't get over you reading 5 to 10 books a week. That's impressive!

  7. i love my kindle... and that is a fantastic thing that you can borrow them... reading medium raw by Anthony Bourdain and loving it!

  8. Now if the iPad could do the same thing, I'd be golden! And they said libraries were becoming obsolete...
