Book Club Friday....

Hey y'all,

It's official, I am the proud owner of a nook Simple Touch. I am so happy and grateful that my parent's gave me a big birthday gift so early and if you are looking for just an e-reader I highly reccomend it. It is the perfect size and allows you to add memory if you ever fill it up, not to mention it has a 2 month battery supply!!!!

So since I received my nook on Saturday afternoon, I have already read one book on it and downloaded a few more. I am very lucky to have access to the North Carolina Digital Library. It allows you to download ebooks and check them out for a various amount of time. Most of the books I have downloaded are issued for a week and then they disappear from your device. Much like a library though there are a limited amount of copies of any given book so you sometimes have to sit on a waitlist to enjoy your book but free is a whole lot better than spending your own money.

I read:
Kady Cross' The Girl in the Clockwork Collar (Steampunk Chronicles #2)
In New York City, 1897, life has never been more thrilling - or dangerous.
Sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne and her "straynge band of mysfits" have journeyed from London to America to rescue their friend Jasper, hauled off by bounty hunters. But Jasper is in the clutches of a devious former friend demanding a trade-the dangerous device Jasper stole from him...for the life of the girl Jasper loves.
One false move from Jasper and the strange clockwork collar around Mei's neck tightens. And tightens.

I actually reviewed the first book here. I loved that the book continues right where the first novel stops and loved the relationship between Finely and Griffin's development along with learning more about the character of Jasper.

I am also almost finished reading Kindred Spirits and Definitely Not Mr. Darcy (nook book) but with being gone all weekend, a dinner in Raleigh with friends, coffee with another friend and crazy weather here I have yet to sit down and finish them off. I also tried to start The Casual Vacancy but after about 50 pages I was not enticed....

What are you reading right now?

Peace and Blessings,


  1. I also have a Nook simple touch and I love it! My favorite part is how light it is, so it's not cumbersome to leave it in your purse/tote. Right now I'm reading the Something Borrowed series, but I'm waiting for my "copy" of Looking For Alaska to become available from my library! :)

  2. Right now I am reading The Beach House by Jane Green . I read Another Piece of My Heart by her over Christmas and LOVED it so now I'm exploring her other books! My blogs Facebook page has a "What I'm Reading" album so if you ever need ideas, check it out!


Thanks for the sweet note!
