J.K. Rowling Releasing Harry Potter eBooks!

J.K. Rowling is opening an interactive website called Pottermore. The site officially opens in October, but a lucky few will be selected to test the site on July 31st.

As you probably know, none of the Harry Potter books were ever released as ebooks. This is all going to change. All the Harry Potter books will be available as both audio books and ebooks for immediate purchase and download at Pottermore.

What J.K. Rowling is doing is amazing. She is cutting her publishers and book sellers out of the picture and selling direct to her fans. She also promises to make additional Harry Potter materials available on the new website.

Everyone in our family is a Harry Potter fan and I’m really looking forward to joining Pottermore! If you would like to know more, please “click here.” J.K. Rowling has a video on the site with more exciting information!

Nook Touch Declared Champion Over Kindle!

Barnes & Noble recently released a new version of their popular Nook. The new model is called the “Nook Touch,” and it’s very impressive! Like the original Nook (now called the “Nook First Edition”), it has a black & white screen, but the similarity pretty much stops there!

Consumer Reports Magazine evaluated the new Nook Touch against several models of the Kindle and declared the Nook Touch the Champion!

Please “click here” to see what Consumer Reports had to say about the Nook Touch.

I own a Color Nook and I love it. But the difference in price could be a big deal! A Color Nook costs $249. A Nook Touch is only $139 (which is the same as the Kindle, but the Kindle is making a special offer of $114 if you “click here“).

Evaluate your options carefully. Once you commit to either Kindle or Nook your locked in. You can’t read your Nook library on a Kindle, and you can’t read your Kindle library on a Nook.

I like my Nook for reasons beyond its features. I enjoy going to my local B&N bookstore and connecting with all the in store discounts and freebies. I like being able to purchase a cup of coffee and looking through real books looking for something I like. You can’t get that from Amazon!

Barnes & Noble has a wonderful mix of the old and the new going on… I like their magic!
