I'm still clinging to the old-fashioned paper, physical book....but I feel like it's only a matter of time, however, before I one day succumb and get one of those e-readers. My Mom has a Kindle and I know plenty of people who have either a Kindle or a Nook and seem to like them. My brother got me a Barnes & Noble gift card for Christmas. The other night I used it to buy Stephen King's 11/22/63, a massive tome. I am REALLY enjoying reading it (when I'm not working on writing my own fiction). Is anyone else out there reading 11/22/63? What do you think of it? I'm only about on page 140....I'm telling you this book is about as thick as Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking...it is massive!
Books are on my mind because "Rebecca at the Beach", my first work of fiction (it's considered a "novella", since it's only 88 pages) was just made available for purchase to all Nook owners. So, if you have a Nook and are interested in a 99-cent download of Rebecca at the Beach, go for it here. ALL softcover Amish Cook titles will be available on Nook by month's end. I'll make announcements as they become available. To purchase Rebecca for your Nook, you can click here
I just got it for my NOOK. I'm hoping to read it very soon. I'm not sure who put it on the nook for only 99 cents, but thank you.
Sandra - Good! I put it there for 99 cents...Rebecca is not a very long book, more like a short story, so 99 cent seemed right. Let me know how you like it!:) - Kevin
I have the soft cover so don't need to down load. I'm trying to keep the small independent book stores alive. They are dying at an alarming rate. There are only 2 clinging to survival in Toledo, Ohio. If you don't have a copy of this book try and order it through your local independent book store.
Pat, good advice...It is so sad to see the independents dying off, although now even the big guys are going under (Borders, for instance)...e-publishing is upending the business, but, yes, if you can order Rebecca at the Beach from your local bookseller, absolutely do so!
I read 11/23/63 in January - don't normally read too much King - enjoyed it. I would comment more, but don't want to ruin it for you if you haven't finished it. I also "held" the book - like you I don't have an e-reader, love to hold the book, several of my friends LOVE the e-reader and don't understand me. Also after I'm finished I can share my copy!
