Refurbished NOOK Color for $169.00 + Free Shipping!

I’m a Barnes & Noble affiliate. I make a little money if you buy a Barnes & Noble product from my website. I love B&N and I’m proud to be associated with them. That being said, I want you to know I don’t make anything from this deal, but it’s too good not to tell you about it!

You can purchase a certified Barnes & Noble refurbished NOOK Color for just $169.00 and get free shipping!  It comes with 90 days of complementary phone support and a one year limited warranty! This is the real deal. It actually ships from Barnes & Noble! This special offer is $80.00 off the normal retail price of $249.00.

I’m a former Nokia repair technician and I can tell you this… Nokia’s refurbished phones were tested at a higher standard of quality control than their new phones. I don’t know if the NOOK Color refurbishment process is similar to Nokia’s, but I’m guessing it is. Based on my experience, I would purchase a refurbished product any day of the week and be confident it will be as good, if not better, then a new one!

If you would like to know more about this offer, please “click here.” I own a NOOK Color and I love it!

Does Don Own an eReader?

Here I am, owner of ebookchronicles.com, and someone asked me if I even owned an eReader! The answer to the question is, Yes… We have several Nooks in our home. I purchased one of the original Nooks for my wife and she in turn bought one for me. We were assured that B&N had spent tens of thousands of dollars developing the B&W Nook and a full color model wasn’t even on their radar. I loved my old Nook! The display was so crisp and clean! I read the entire Percy Jackson & Olympians series on it!

Then one day everything changed… We walked into our local Barnes & Nobel and there it was… The Nook Color! OMG, it was love at first sight! Brilliant color and a wall-to-wall touch screen! Easily accessible SDHC slot! Folders for your pictures, videos, music, and documents! Wi-Fi connectivity! Oh, and did I mention you can even read ebooks on it! Amazing!

My wife played Santa and bought me a Nook Color for Christmas (on the condition I gave my B&W Nook to my oldest daughter). I take my Nook Color with me everywhere! I’m the maintenance guy for several local shopping centers. I keep my things-to-do list on it… My site plans are on it… My email account is on it… I can stop at Starbucks or McDonalds and be on the internet in seconds. And did I mention you can read ebooks on it too!

I also have Nook apps loaded on my PC, laptop, and android cellphone… It is now virtually (virtually, did you get that?) impossible to loose a book. I can be anywhere on the planet (and in earth orbit as well) and access my ebook library. It doesn’t matter which device I use to access my last ebook, it will open to the exact page I was last reading. What’s really cool is we’ve got all of our Nooks registered to the same Barnes & Nobel account. If I purchase an ebook, my wife and daughter can read it at the same time as I do!

Does Don own an eReader? The answer is yes, Yes, and YES!

NookColor Update!

My wife gave me a NookColor for Christmas and I love it! I’m even happier to report it will soon be even better! Barnes & Nobel confirmed the NookColor will be getting a number of software enhancements in April. Many applications are being made available for the first time and Adobe Flash can be downloaded enabling the NookColor to play videos. The NookColor will also have email service independent of internet browsers.

I carry my NookColor with me almost everywhere I go. I can drop into a McDonalds or a Starbucks and have internet access almost instantly. Did I mention you can also read ebooks on it as well (grin!). The more I use my NookColor the better I like it!
