New low prices on Nook Color and Tablet

In case you were looking for Christmas gift ideas ...

I got my dad a Nook Color earlier this year for his birthday, and he loves it. He can check his email, play his video poker games (he downloaded a Nook app) and buy and read his science fiction ebooks.

Dad used to read tons of science fiction--his favorite author is Alan Dean Foster. Mom said he hadn't been reading much before he got the Nook Color and now he's reading as much as he used to when he was younger. He said he's been pretty happy to get to download Alan Dean Foster's backlist books that he hadn't read yet.

I got him the Nook Color because I guessed it would be easy to use even for my 70-something year old father, and it definitely is.

  1. How thoughtful of you, Camy! Your dad's fortunate to have such a nice daughter like you. :) Your dad reminds me of my aunt, she also reads Alan Dean Foster books, you know. Don't get me wrong, though, I love the story of Star Wars, but the movies were enough for me. I think I’ll head on to reading a romance novel instead.

    1. Thanks Lakendra! I used to read Alan Dean Foster when I was younger, but these days I admit I prefer Regency romance and romantic suspense more. :)
