Anyone here use Barnes and Noble? I got a gift card from the team boss at work and am trying to see if I can use it to buy digital stuff (like eBooks, etc). So far my attempts have failed and they make me charge stuff to a credit card -- which defeats the purpose.

I may just have to buy hard copy books, which is fine, but it would be nice if I could buy eBooks. Not that I have a nook but I have the nook app on a lot of things, ha!

As a gift for Christmas with my amazon gift cards, I got myself a 6" Kindle Fire. It arrived today and I've been putting in all the books I haven't read, and so far I am really liking it. It's the perfect size. Not too big, but small enough that it's bigger than a telephone and I can read. It's about the size of a paperback.

I also got all my books but one for my classes. I bought a book used and they said it might take two weeks to get here, but these are the books for my two classes (communications having only one book at the very bottom).

Otherwise, it's been a quiet Sunday. I worked on leveling my Mage from 93 to 95 just so I can expand the stupid tailor and enchanting depots in my garrison (which I need to be 96 for). I also leveled my young monk a little bit (level 10). Still not really into the expansion, but it's something to do to pass the time when I need a break from reading.

And January 4th's question! What is your best physical feature? - Submitted by [personal profile] serys  

Honestly, my eyes. I love my eyes. They’re hazel most days, but they change color depending on what I am wearing (green, gray and blue). I also have natural long lashes, which had an old friend of mine once say “I wish I could gouge your eyes out and put them in my head.” Not kidding. Kind of creeped me out, lmao. But yeah, I love my eyes … and that’s probably why its the first feature I look for in guys. If a guy has hot eyes, yum!

Kindles are amazing. I love mine.
I've been buying paperbacks lately. I love the smell of books, old and new. *.* The only thing my city lacks is a used book store.
And yes, barnes and nobel is one of my favorite places to go.
fuck, i love books, wish i could read forever. @_@

Japan At War is one of my favorites. i have used it for several papers because it has nice first person accounts of many historical events.

happy reading!

Re: Kindle- Be prepared to have your reading habits changed. It's been at least 4 years since I've bought a fiction paperback/hardback book. At my worst, I had a 2 tall shelf habit. I'm now down to a crate and a kindle. Kindles are great for space saving, paper saving, and eye saving (due to ability to change font size).

For textbooks, cookbooks, and certain nonfiction, hands on paper is the way to go.
