Your Favorite Read

As a nook owner, I’m always looking for new books to add to my collection so tell me this…

What has been your favorite read on your nook? Why?

My favorite would have to be John Grisham’s, “The Confession”. This book gripped me from beginning to end and I couldn’t put it down.

Get Cash Back!!

I just found out a few weeks ago that you’re able to earn cash back on your Barnes & Noble purchases (along with a number of other stores) just by signing up for an Ebates account!

It’s easy to join an easy to start earning money. Simply go to Ebates, sign up for an account and start making purchases. When you’re on the Ebates site, just do a search for the store you’re looking for and link to the store from Ebates to start earning money!!

If you purchase nook books online from Barnes & Noble, go to your “library” on your nook and search for new content. Your book will then be added to your library. It’s that easy and if you’re earning cash back on your purchases that just means more books for your nook!! It’s a win-win.

Special Delivery!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I was really excited to receive a special delivery in the mail today!!

Gussy just started carrying e-reader & iPad sleeves and I couldn’t pass up some new attire for my nook…especially when it comes from none other than Gussy herself!!

This sleeve is great! It is generously padded for an extra bit of security for my nook and zips shut. And as with all of Gussy’s high-quality products, the front is graced with Gussy’s signature, eye-catching ruffle!

If you haven’t heard of Gussy before you must take a peek at her blog and her shop! Gussy (a.k.a. Maggie) is a self-taught seamstress. I came across her in the Fall of 2009 when she was looking for people to review her ruffled zip pouches. Gussy has gone from sewing on the side to quitting her full-time job outside of the home and making Gussy her full-time job at home. Gussy has been featured in magazines such as “Pregnancy & Newborn” and “OK! Magazine” as well as “The LA Times Daily Dish”.

So, head on over and meet Gussy. And, if you sign up to receive the Gussy newsletter (from her shop site) you will receive a discount code for 15% off your purchase.

Stay tuned for a post about the Lend Me feature on your nook!

nook Warranty

Accidents can happen. I’ve learned this the hard way one too many times. I use my nook every day and as much as I hate to think about it, one of these days something is bound to happen. This is where Squaretrade comes in.

If you have purchased your nook within the past 90 days, you can get your nook covered under Squaretrade for as little as $29.99. Squaretrade offers 2- & 3-year warranties that will cover mechanical & electrical failure, damage from drops & spills, and other damage from handling. Last night I was able to purchase a 3-year warranty for my nook for only $34.99 after receiving a 30% discount by using the discount code SANTA. If this discount code does not work, you can access Squaretrade on Facebook where I have noticed discount codes being posted. It’s a small price to pay for peace of mind and coverage in case something happens.

Edited to add: make sure you either fax or email a copy of the receipt for your nook to Squaretrade. They will keep it on file so it’s accessible if/when you need to use the warranty.
