GIVEAWAY: One Slightly Used Nook Color


The response here was so tremendous that I am sorry I have only one nook color to give away. Having said that, more people are using the affiliate links and because of that, Dear Author is going to giveaway one ereader a month (either Kobo Touch, Nook Touch or Kindle wifi).We’ll start that on August 1 .

The winner of the Nook Color is CK who wrote:

Awesome giveaway!

First book? I’d have to say Vampirates series for my 9yo since we are going on loooong car trip LOL. For me? Anything Shelly Laurenston to keep me laughing while on said trip. ;)


I bought a Nook Color for review purposes for the blog but despite the cool factor, I’ve not used it very often.  It’s actually been languishing in the house and I thought that there might be someone who would benefit from it here on the blog.

Here’s my review of the Nook Color and if you are interested in the Nook Touch, Bettie Sharpe did a guest review for Dear Author here.

I prefer reading on an eink device versus reading on an LCD screen and now that I have the Nook Touch, I can’t imagine that the Nook Color will get any more attention than it has in the past.  In sum, it needs a new home.

The Nook Color is in pretty good condition and comes with the gray faux leather case and a screen protector that is applied. I also have the wall charger and the original special USB cord (it has a longer tip to facilitate the “fast charging”) which will also ship with the device.

There is a small nick on one side which I have attempted to show in this picture.

I dropped the nookcolor once. I know.  I shouldn’t be allowed near electronics.

Just drop a comment with the first book you would load onto your semi-new nook color.  Contest ends Monday at noon CST.  This contest is open to international winners.

Other giveaways you might be interested in is the one that Courtney Milan and I are sponsoring at Goodreads for Unlocked. It’s a DRM free ePub and would be perfect for that semi-new nook color.

    Thanks for the opportunity!
    First book I want to download at my nook is Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison, I’ve always intrigued about this one since long ago, but didn’t have a chance to read it

  2. Lynette
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:06:39

    Thank you for the opportunity. The first book I would load would be Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh. I’ve been dying to read Hawke’s story and have been waiting for the opportunity to purchase it.

  3. Dayna/Rowan
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:06:49

    This is very nice of you.

    My first book on a shiny new reader? I’d look for Brom’s illustrated The Child Thief, in order to take advantage of the color display.

  4. Bea
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:08:06

    The first book I’d load would be “Senior Year Bites” by JA Campbell.

  5. Monica-Marie Holtkamp
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:08:20

    The first book that I would load onto this device would most likely be The Hexhall series first book Hexhall, and then of course Demonglass would follow. I’ve read both of the books in paperback, but I’d love to be able to have them in eformat too! Especially since I traded Demonglass to another author because I wanted Rachel Hawkins to have more readers!

  6. Dana
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:08:44

    I would load it with both Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series and Stephanie Meyers Twilight and wrap up for my daughter.

    They don’t have computer access so this would introduce her to the grand world of e-books.

  7. amber
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:09:22

    The first book that I’d download is Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris. I’ve been holding off on reading it, and this would be a perfect reason to finally get it.

  8. Jason
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:09:55

    I would load Year of the Cat by Selah March and Wicked Gentlemen by Ginn Hale!

  9. Sara A.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:10:52

    I think I’d download “Deathless” by Cat Valente :)

  10. Kristina H.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:11:42

    Wow, great giveaway! First book I’d load would be Carrie Ryan’s THE DARK AND HOLLOW PLACES, because I’d have to share with my 11 yr. old daughter, and she’s just finished the first two books in the series and is dying to read the third!

  11. jayhjay
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:12:05

    Hmm, first book I would download is Marie sexton’s sinners and saints which I have been dying to buy but need to curb my shopping for a few weeks!

  12. Maisey
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:12:35

    Fabulous giveaway! Thanks! My 5yo loves to read too, and I think I would have to get Oh, The Places You’ll Go! So we could really check out the color!

  13. Lori
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:12:43

    Wow, thank you for the opportunity.

    I would load The Sisters Grimm (books 1 – 8) and give it to my 10 year old. She has started reading on my Kindle and doesn’t want to give it back.

    I’d like to finish reading Courtney Milan’s book but I can’t get the kindle back! (Big waaah on that.)

  14. Chris
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:13:08

    I would load The Cat in the Cradle Sketchbook by Jay Bell because I think the Nook Color could actually display the sketches nicely!

  15. Spencer Pranger
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:14:30

    I’ve been killing for an e-reader, but thus a family of both parents full-time students plus a child leaves the budget semi-limited for amazing technology like this. I would probably put On Writing by Stephen King and Joseph Campbells Hero with a Thousand Faces first. Then of course get the one that you are sponsering on :)

  16. Alex D
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:14:33

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway. The first book that I would load onto it would be Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn. I keep hearing good things about it and have never tried her work.

  17. Lorenet
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:14:59

    I would buy Scandalous Women by Elizabeth Kerri Mahon.

  18. Vivian
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:15:15

    WOW! What a generous offer, thanks. The first book I’d download is “Watch Me Die” by Erica Spindler followed by “Smokin’ Seventeen” by Janet Evanovich.

  19. Nadia Lee
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:15:42

    CAT’S TALE by Bettie Sharpe! :-D

  20. Julia Broadbooks
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:15:44

    I’d load Patchett’s new title, State of Wonder. Or maybe Grand Sophy. I’ve loved most of the Heyer titles I’ve read and this is one I haven’t had a chance to read yet.

  21. MIchelle in Colorado
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:17:40

    The first book I would download would be Deadline by Mira Grant.

  22. Heather A
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:18:34

    The first book I would load on the Nook would be The Truth of Valor by Tanya Huff. It’s her latest and I love the strong female hero. Ms. Huff is an amazing Sci-fi, Fantasy, Horror author that I just can’t get enough of. I just finished reading her Keeper series in 3 days (3 books, 3 days).

  23. Pamala
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:18:59

    Arrghh! If I were to win the Nook Color, I’d have to flip a coin and download either Nalini Singh’s KISS OF SNOW or Rachel Vincent’s MY SOUL TO STEAL. My teenaged son likes to read many of the same books as me, especially romance with a sci-fi or fantasy thread.

  24. LB
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:19:23

    Hourglass, by Myra McIntyre

  25. amy
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:20:34

  27. Lauren
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:21:29

    great giveaway! The first book I’d download would be “Magic Slays” by Ilona Andrews. I haven’t received the hardcopy yet because of rolling postal strikes in Canada and I can’t wait to read it!

  28. sweetiepiepen
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:21:34

    Awesome giveaway! I’d get The Mane Event by Shelly Laurenston. Read a review yesterday that moved it up to the top of my to buy list.

  29. Lori Strongin
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:21:52

    Probably Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. It’s a classic Go To whenever I need to lose myself in a book. Next up, probably the Catcher in the Rye, since it’s my all-time favorite book.

    Thanks for doing this! :D

  30. DarcyO
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:21:56

    I would download Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley. Thanks for the chance!

  31. scooper
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:22:44

    I would load Karen Chance’s newest Cassie Palmer book on it. :)

  32. Darcy
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:22:45

    How wonderful that your gifting this to a winner…*S*
    Alas my Kindle DX is slowly dying due to the extreme cold her in the interior of Alaska.
    H accidentally left it in the truck when he ran an errand when the temps were -43 degrees.
    Hasn’t ran well since.
    I have a couple of books I have to convert to put on my Kindle, and my Kindle doesn’t like it right now.
    Thank you for the contest!



  33. JC
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:23:02

    The first book I’d download would be Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve had a hankering to read it, but my copy is about four hours away (driving) in storage.

  34. Loosheesh
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:25:40

    Awesome giveaway – thanks! If I won the Nook Color, the first book I’d read on it would be Kevin Hearne’s Hounded! :)

  35. Tricia Fields
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:26:20

    The first book I would load onto a Nook Color would be Nalini Singh’s Kiss of Snow. What a lovely cover to see in color!

  36. Ethan Stone
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:26:38

    This is perfect. Last weekend I apparently left my Sony eReader in Vegas last weekend and I’m going nuts without it. The Nook Color was going to be my choice after I saved money for it.
    The first book I would load? That is a tough choice. There are a lot of books by K.A. Mitchell I haven’t read yet. L.A. Witt too. And Cameron Dane. SOOOO many choices.
    Most likely something by Mitchell. That’s my final answer. Wait…no…yes… K.A. Mitchell.

  37. Carla
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:27:29

    The first thing I would load on the Nook would be Artemis Fowl. My son loves to read and this would be perfect for him to take to his drs appts and procedures.

  38. Debra Kayn
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:27:31

    Oh, nice! I would download Creed’s Honor by Linda Lael Miller. I love her cowboys, because they have real emotions, which makes them sexy!

  39. HistoricalRomanceJunkie Rita
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:27:43

    This is an awesome giveaway!

    Hmm, so many choices! I would probably download 15 books in the first 10 minuets- but the FIRST book would probably be Johanna Lindsey’s ‘When Passion Rules’.’

    I only have the Kindle and Nook PC apps, so buying the digital version of THAT book wouldn’t seem worth it- but with a frecking Nook, Id download her whole backlist! LOL

    Thanks for the giveaway !


  40. Rhianna
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:27:54

    Goodnight Moon would be my first pick because it’s my toddlers favorite. I love my Kindle for my reading but it doesn’t cut it for picture books for my kids and with a long driving trip coming up this would be the perfect way to take a little library with us without filling the trunk. lol

  41. Carol DeVaney
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:28:07

    Such a generous offer! Thank you.

    I’d purchase The Girl Who Disappeared Twice, by Andrea Kane. Out I believe in July.

  42. Patti W
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:29:14

    Laruren Dane’s Mesmerized would be the first book I downloaded.

  43. Niki Smith
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:30:44

    Name of the Wind, because I’ve only heard the audiobook and want to see what details I pick up one when reading the text myself…

    Plus a few graphic novels. :) Nook Color is way better for that than black & white e-ink!

  44. Katelyn
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:32:04

    Wow! This is such an awesome giveaway. I have been getting more and more book review requests on my blog (which is VERY exciting) but a lot of authors are sending PDF files. Only having my laptop to read off of is getting so frustrating! I have 7 e-books to read right now. So those would be the ones I would download first. Witch Song, Dream Crystal, just to name a few. I would greatly appreciate winning this giveaway. Thanks again for this opportunity!

  45. Lisa J
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:32:18

    Thanks you for the opportunity.

    Yours to Keep is the first book I would put on it.

  46. Mary Anne Graham
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:32:39

    The First book I’d load – “Just Like Heaven” by Julia Quinn –

    *Finger’s crossed but I’m afraid my Lucky Duck is off swimming at the pond. She’s been there for ages!*

  47. Shannon
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:34:11

    Okay, this might sound lame to you guys. But I would download my short story, After The Rain, first and let my grandmother read it. It’s only available as an ebook. So this would be perfect.

  48. Suzy K
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:34:11

    Thanks for the opportunity!!

    The first book I would load (purchased) would be the Royal Weddings anthology that came out in early April. It is only available as an ebook & I’ve not downloaded an e-reader that is compatible with it… yet. I like Stephanie Laurens & would like to read her story in the anthology.

    But there would also be a number of out-of-copyright books that I would download to read. Also a lot of non-fiction!

    This nook would get used!! oh, yes, it would be well used!!

  49. Mary
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:34:52

    Loretta Chase “Captives of the Night”, since it’s only e-pub at the moment.

  50. Sheryl Nantus
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:35:44

    Any and all of the Eve Dallas books by La Nora. I’m so hooked that I just can’t stop reading and reading them all!

    … plus The Jungle Book.

    ’cause I love Rikki Tikki Tavi.


  51. Kerstin Wolff
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:36:09

    Blood From A Stone by Donna Leon. I need to catch up on the Brunetti series!


  52. Debra D.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:36:38

    I shouldnt be let around electronics either. Left my Sony reader on the table, cat knocked it off and new puppy had a new chew toy LOL.

    I would load Singh’s Kiss of Snow to read it again. Love that book!

    Thanks for the giveaway Jane.

  53. Lisa Hightower
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:40:27

    I think the first book I would load on it would probably have to be a Jane Austen, probably Emma since I haven’t read it yet this year.

    I would love to win this because then with two nooks in the house the mister would not be so mad that I keep buying ebooks when he won’t be able to read them (because I am not handing over my nook, no way.)

  54. Deborah N.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:40:59

    I would load Cotillion by Georgette Heyer, which I’m dying to re-read. And there’s an “enhanced” ebook version of Bernard Cornwell’s The Fort for Nook Color I’d want to check out.

    It’s so thoughtful of you to do these giveaway!

  55. j3nny
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:42:05

    Sound awesome :)

    The first thing I’d load this baby up with would be Shannon Stacey’s Yours to Keep. I bought it, I read it, and I love it :) It’s definitely a keeper!

  56. Terri
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:43:48

    Thanks for the giveaway. I would download Julia Quinn’s Just Like Heaven.

  57. Lisa B
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:45:20

    If it were for me I would download Shannon Stacey’s Kowalski series. If i win though it will go to my husband who is a over the road truck driver that likes to read. This would be a awesome way for him to read without taking up space paperbacks do in his truck cab. He’s gone for weeks at a time and in his down time he reads.

  60. Michael Bailey
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:46:00

    I would load the next Alpha and Omega novel by Patricia Briggs. I’m caught up with Mercy, but I’ve yet to read past the first book in Charles’s series.

  61. Dale
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:46:27

    For me it’d be The Lake by Banana Yoshimoto, the next book on my TBR list.

  62. Margay
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:46:38

    I would definitely download Unlocked!

  63. Jennie M.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:49:32

    I would load Steam & Sorcery by Cindy Spencer Pape. I’m really into steampunk lately.

  64. Jennifer Lackey
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:49:59

    Awesome idea – first book? Tough choice, but I think I would have to go with Outlander by Diana Galbadon. Or maybe the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. No, wait…the Highlander series by KMM. Anything by Virginia Henley, or maybe the Dragon series by G.A. Aiken. On second thought, it might be best to download them all, then hide myself away for a reading frenzy. :-)

  65. rissatoo
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:50:10

    If I were to win (and BTW, nice giveaway!), I’d have to load it with Shannon Stacey’s Yours To Keep, and IT’S ALL YOUR FAULT!
    …OK, maybe it’s only half your fault, and the other half is SBTB’s fault… ;)

  66. Jackie
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:50:18

    I’d immediately put on *Pride and Prejudice*, because it’s the first book I put on everything (bookshelves, computers, Kindles, TVs, etc). That book is home.

  67. Manga Maniac
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:50:44

    The first book I would download would be Loretta Chase’s Silk is for Seduction. I love her books and haven’t read one in a while.

    Great contest!

  68. Jen D.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:50:58

    Wow, great giveaway! =) The first book I’d upload would be Ilona Andrews’ Magic Slays. Melissa Marr’s Graveminder would follow. Ally Carter’s Uncommon Criminal would immediately be on that sucker the second it’s released. A little Jane Austen, a few books by Joanna Bourne…. Heck, I’d probably invest in ebooks for all my favorites within in the first 24 hours. ;)

    Thanks so much for the giveaway! =D

  69. James
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:51:28

    Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent

  70. Kimberly C.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:51:34

    First download would be Shannon Stacey’s Yours to Keep. It sounds very promising!

  71. StacieDM
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:52:48

    I would download Blood of the Wicked by Karina Cooper. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  72. Marian
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:56:01


    The first book I would load would be Unlocked by Courtney Milan. Your review completely intrigued me.

    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:58:09

    I’d love to win this. I’d download Cinderella ate my Daughter. NF/I know, but a topic I’m interested in.

  74. Muneera N.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:58:12

    The first book I would load on this would be Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh just so I could read it again! :D

    Thank you for doing this!

  75. Kim B
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:58:20

    I would give it to my bff for her 40th birthday and put on it my favorites from Shelli Stevens, Mari Carr, Jayne Rylon, and Erin Nicholas.

  76. jude
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 12:59:31

    Among the first twenty or so I’d download (I am flying a lot lately due to family health issues) would be Jo Walton’s “Among Others.”

  77. Kim B
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:01:02

    I would give it to my bff and put on it my favorites from Shelli Stevens, Mari Carr, Jayne Rylon, and Erin Nicholas.

    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:01:24

    What a great thing to do with your Color Nook. First book I’d load . . . (besides putting my own book on there) would probably be Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh. Thanks.

  79. Christine
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:05:25

    First book would be A Lot Like Love by Julie James

  80. Heidi
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:06:02

    I would love to download something from the In Death series. I have this feeling that I might be the last person around that hasn’t read any of them *hangs head* and would love to remedy that on a shiny almost-new Nook :D

  81. Tamara Hogan
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:09:13

    How thoughtful of you! My choice would be Nalini Singh’s “Kiss of Snow.”

  82. Janice
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:10:19

    Jane, what a doll you are!! The first book I’d load would have to be Good Night Moon. Second and third would be a close tie between The Help and The Winter Sea. Thanks for a great blog!

  83. willaful
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:10:36

    Gosh, I don’t know. I think I’d want to find something that would really make use of the color ability, like a picture book. So I guess I’d find something illustrated that my son would like, so we could look at it together.

  84. Renda
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:13:47

    Think I would have to go with Singh or Stacy first. Maybe both. Haven’t read either and both intrigue.

  85. Shannon Cave
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:15:11

    I think I would download The Help. I keep hearing great things about it!

  86. Carolyn
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:15:28

    I would download Time Enough for Love by Heinlein. I have it on my phone but the library will delete it tomorrow and I’m nowhere near done!

  87. Chris
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:18:51

    I would download Shannon Stacey’s new book “Yours to Keep.”

  88. Kerry
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:19:40

    wow, hard to say just one. I would probably load “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh”. I could say it would be for my 4 year old daughter, but honestly – I love the illustrations. rofl.

  89. Gretchen
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:19:54

    The first title I’d download is MATCHED by Ally Condie. I’ve been meaning to read it for ages, but it’s always checked out at my library.

  90. Kerensa
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:20:22

    Wow, I would so love to have this, since I only have a 1st gen Kindle currently (which, despite its limitations, I *LURVE*). I’d love to be able to expand my digital reading horizons, and the first book I’d put on it is anything by K.A. Mitchell. After two books, she’s totally 100% an autobuy for me, and I’m trying to glom all her backlist I can find, ASAP.

  91. Jennie
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:20:36

    I’d go with The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss.

    This is so nice of you! I would load a Nalini Singh book on it. I tried reading the Guild Hunter series a few years ago and I could not get into it. With the release of Kiss of Snow, I decided to give the Psy/Changeling series a chance. I read Slave to Sensation and loved it!!! So I’m working my way through the series. If I win, I’ll download whichever book I’m on at the time. To be honest, I’ll probably download all of them; I’m such a huge fan.

  93. sandy l
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:22:18

    The first book to be downloaded would be the new George R.R. Martin that comes out next month.

  94. AnnJ
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:22:23

    Thank you so much for the opportunity.

    I would download – The Wind and The Sea by Marsha Canham.

    Thanks again


  95. Tabs
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:23:01

    Cotillion by Georgette Heyer because my poor iphone screen is just not big enough to read Heyer on.

  96. Joder
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:24:41

    I would get Waking Up With The Duke by Lorraine Heath. And thanks so much for the giveaway!

  97. Tessa K.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:27:55

    Depending on when it arrives, if I won it, the first book would be Janet Evanovich’s Smokin’ Seventeen. Unless I’ve already read that one, in which case it would probably be whatever I am in the mood to reread. I am also looking forward to Time of Death, the J.D. Robb novella anthology, but I haven’t checked the formats, so I don’t know if it will be available as an ebook.

  98. Janine G.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:28:48

    The first thing I would put on there would be A Game Of Thrones by George R.R. Martin because I have heard the books surpass the show and I like the show :)

  99. karen wester newton
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:37:00

    I have some other Nook book on my Nook for PC, but I would love to try the new enhanced ebook THE FORT by Bernard Cornwall, which seems to be available only on the Nook Color.

  100. Madelene
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:37:25

    Well, the next book in my TBR pile is Bad Company by K.A. Mitchell, so that’d be the first upload on that lovely Nook :)

  101. Kim
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:39:48

    I would download Unlocked by Courtney Milan.

  102. Melissa (Books and Things)
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:41:49

    Probably a book from S&S Galley Grab. :) Not sure which one, however.

  103. Malena
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:41:59

    I would download Beth Harbison’s ALWAYS SOMETHING THERE TO REMIND ME, her July release.

  104. Moriah Jovan
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:42:21

    Ha! Mine. The Proviso.

  105. Dawn
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:43:24

    Omg my ereader just cracked! I was just looking at this too :) thanks for the opportunity! Wow what book would I download??? …… Not sure there are so many I want right now but one of my favorite authors just released a book so I’d say RG Alexander’s Three Sinful Wishes ;)

  106. Michelle
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:43:31

    Supernaturally by Kiersten White, though it doesn’t come out until late July.

  107. LSUReader
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:43:48

    What a great idea! Courtney Milan’s Unlocked it is! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

  108. Megan
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:48:32

    I think I’d go with Unveiled by Courtney Milan…just read Unlocked and really want to read a full length story from her!

  109. Carla C
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:52:58

    I would download a classic that I always return to for some reason, like a security blanket … Gone With The Wind, then I would go for some goodies.

  110. Sarah
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:57:02

    Ohh… nice! I’d download Thea Harrison’s Dragon Bound since I need to read that badly.

  111. maered
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:57:13

    I would go for a comfort read. Like a Julie Garwood. Or Sea Swept by Nora Roberts.

  112. Susana
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 13:59:48

    Jane, thank you for the generous giveaway.

    The first book I would download is The Darkest Whisper by Gena Showalter.

  113. eskimo
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:03:27

    Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s The Midnight Palace. The blurb sounds really interesting and I haven’t read an urban fantasy set in Calcutta!

  114. Kelley
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:03:47

    I’d probably download Hexed, specifically for the Ilona Andrews short story.

  115. Carolyn
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:04:33

    This is so generous of you.

    I would download the Magic books by Ilona Andrews, those I don’t already have in e-format because my paper copies are falling to pieces!

  116. Jennifer M (OR)
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:06:38

  118. Linda Winfree
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:07:59

    Bittersweet Obsessions by Annie Rayburn. Mind-reading alien race with lots and lots of angst. Gotta love it.

  119. Sophia (FV)
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:09:59

    I already have an ereader but would love to win this for a friend that I’ve been trying to convince to give ebooks a try. I would load it up with Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison :)

  120. Amanda S
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:10:16

    I would put Laura Ingall’s books on :)

  121. Amy H.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:11:45

  129. QueenCityE
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:26:23

    If I won I’d take the chance to read a new series (new to me anyway), by downloading Real Vampires have Curves by Gerry Bartlett.

  130. Denise
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:26:59

    The first book I would download would be Larissa Ione’s “Pleasure Unbound” … followed by the maximum I could snag before DH lost his cool. :)

  131. MaryK
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:27:36

    I’d load the free Kindle kids’ books and Vook books to see how they work on the color screen and all the category romances I got at the ARe Memorial Day sale.

    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:43:08

    I would love to see “The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making’ by Catherynne M Valente; Illustrations by Ana Juan

  135. Suzanne
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:46:42

    If I had a Nook Color, I would be loading Ilona Andrews, Juliet Blackwell and Rachel Caine. I would be able to get the books that are hard to find or out of print with an EReader. It would be wonderful.

    And I would probably load some classics and poetry.

  136. Elise
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:46:51

    I’d pick up “Yours to Keep” because I’ve been in a contemporary kinda mood lately and rereading Victoria Dahl’s Tumble Creek series only made it worse.

  137. shweta
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:46:54

    I will read either John Steinback’s East of Eden or Gabriel García Márquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude .

    I have always wanted to read them. My cousin is even ready to loan them to me. But as I have no ereader and read on my mobile phone, it has not been possible.

  138. Monica Millard
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:47:39

    Angel Burn by Lee Weatherly

  139. Ferah
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:55:57

    The first book I’d put on it is Nalini Singh’s “Kiss of Snow”. Thanks for the opportunity.

  140. Erin L
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:56:26

    The SBTB Book Club book. My MIL gave me a BN gift card even though she and I had a long discussion about my Sony ereader :-)

  141. CrystalGB
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 14:59:55

    The first book I would put on the Nook would be Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh. Thanks for the awesome giveaway. I would love to have a Nook.

  142. Karen
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:00:05

    I think the first book I’d download would be Mary Balogh’s upcoming release The Secret Mistress

  143. Brandi Evans
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:05:23

    Game of Thrones. I have been wanting to watch the series it I can’t until I read the book. I’ve been torturing myself.

  144. CurlyQ
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:11:18

    A difficult question – probably the new Charlaine Harris – Dead Reckoning.

  145. Amy S.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:12:28

    There is a children’s book which I purchased from bn for free. I got it for my nephew, but I didn’t know it can only be used on the nook color. I would put that one on first for him so he can read it.

  146. Dawn & Ron
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:14:30

    I would load an Elizabeth Chadwick novel. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Could you explain the difference between an eink device and a LCD?

  147. Stephanie K.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:15:05

    I would download Pale Demon by Kim Harrison.

  148. Lynne Connolly
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:17:19

    don’t put me in the draw – I already have a Nook Color.
    I love it, but I don’t use it for reading. I updated it to the latest OS and then rooted it so it works as a full tablet. So I play games, surf the net and so on with mine. I don’t have an ipad, I didn’t like them particularly, but the NC is perfect for me. But not as a reader. I used it for a week or two, and went back to my Kindle.

  149. Tasha
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:18:06

    Anne Stuart’s Shameless, the instant it comes out!

  150. April V
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:18:16

    I would say Magic Slays but by the time this giveaway is over I’ll probably have it already! So, um. Hm. Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander so that when I lend out my falling apart paperback I’ll still have it to read myself.

  151. Annie
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:18:57

    The first ebook I would load would be the newest Meg Cabot- Overbite.

  152. Brandy
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:20:08

    I’d download Heartless by Gail Carriger.

  153. Tina
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:24:03

    I’d load it with the Kane Chronicles series by Rick Riordon so my son could stop stealing my e-reader!

  154. Eve
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:33:31

    I would download “American Gods” by Neil Gaiman. Favorite book.

  155. Annabel
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:38:19

    I would download the third book in Adrienne Wilder’s Darwin series, Promises. I don’t usually read M/m OR Paranormal but her worlds are so different and her style is so fresh, I make an exception for her.

  156. Chey
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:38:49

    I’d download Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.

  157. Renee
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:39:58

    I would load up Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh. Ooooh how much fun to own a ereader. I’ve wanted one for a while but it’s wayyyy down on the list of necessary expenditures at the moment :)

  158. avoriana
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:44:55

    I would download In For A Penny by Rose Lerner.

  159. Lizabeth S. Tucker
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:46:02

    Since it is color, I would have to chose something in the manga line, probably Yaoi since I love to read about pretty boys who love each other.

  160. Jennie
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:47:04

    Ooohh! What a great giveaway.

    My first book uploaded would be, without a doubt, Susanna Kearsley’s newest release: “The Rose Garden”. I’m dying to read this, but the paperback version doesn’t come out until October.

  161. Sarita
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:48:42

    What a great giveaway! I would download something by Jill Shalvis, I think. She always takes me on a fun romantic ride and escapist reading is exactly what I need right now!

  162. TrishJ
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:52:11

    OMG! I would love to win!! And the 1st book I’d get would be Yours to Keep by shannon stacey. I have heard soo many good things! Thanks!!

  163. German Reader
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:53:36

    I’d like to give John Locke a try and I’m also waiting for Annabel Joseph’s Lily Mine

  164. Bianca
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:56:17

    I’ve been wanting one of these forever. :)

  167. Shweta
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 16:04:06

    I would either be reading John Steinback’s East of Eden or Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude .

    Have always wanted to read them.

    Do consider me.

    Sorry, repeating it. But I had written the wrong email in the previous one.

    Sorry, repeating it. But I had written the wrong email in the previous one.

  169. Lori S
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 16:13:12

    Wonderful & generous giveaway! I would download the last 2 Roxanne St Claires. I’m kicking myself that I haven’t read them yet.

  171. Gina Ardito
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 16:22:57

    Any Eve Dallas book by JD Robb. Who cares if I’ve already read them? I can read them again. And again. And again.

    Jun 12, 2011 @ 16:40:40

    I would give this to my aunt, so the first book I would download would be A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton.

  176. Annabelle M.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 16:44:17

    Pick me, pick me. First book definitely, Tara Janzen, Cutting Loose. Then mostly children’s books, as I would be forced to share my good fortune.

  177. Janet P.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 16:46:09

    I’m completely looking forward to Elizabeth’s Jennings upcoming release – Darkness at Dawn so that would be the first book downloaded to a new nook color. :)

  179. Tabitha
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 16:53:44

  180. Patrice
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 16:55:17

  185. Missy_G
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 17:02:42

    I would download a few Dr Seuss books for my daughter. For me, the review of Shannon Stacey sounded good so I added her to my list as new author to try.

  186. Dawn Blankenship
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 17:04:43

    I would love the nook. I’ve been wanting one so I don’t have to carry heavy books in my purse. I either walk with a cane or use my wheelchair so anything that can be less weight to carry is great. So if you’d pick me I’d be so grateful. Thank you.

  187. Sabrina
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 17:15:59

    “Chasin’ Eight” by Lorelei James would be what I would load first. I am a sucker for a cowboy;)

  188. Natalie Thomas
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 17:23:05

    I’d load “Exclusively Yours” by Shannon Stacey. I just read “Yours to Keep” and now I want to read the others in the series.

    I’d love to give this to my mother, with Unlocked by Courtney Milan on it.

  191. Nicole
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 17:34:58

    I would probably download Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I have a first edition hardcover copy that I have read about 6 times. But it is one of my favorites, because Ash is probably my favorite character.

  192. joseri
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 17:41:20

    I would probably download the first in JR Ward’s series – I’ve heard so much hype about them but never read one yet.

  193. peggy h
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 17:46:57

    I’d love to try out the Nook Color! I just bought Shannon’s newest, and it’s unlikely that will stay unread past tonight–but if for some reason life gets in the way and I haven’t read it yet if I win the Nook Color, that would be the first one! Otherwise, it may be one of the several Carina Press books I bought from Kobo last month with their $1 off coupon!

  194. Danielle Gorman
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 17:55:47

    Wow, what a great giveaway! My aunt has a Nook color is always talking about how great it is. The put the entire BDB series by JR Ward on it.

  195. Vincent Diamond
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 17:59:15

    This sounds like a fab contest. If I won, I’d download the latest Charlaine Harris, Dead Reckoning. Thanks for the chance!

  196. Kelly in Hockeytown
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:18:51

    I would load YOURS TO KEEP because I am all about saving the contemporary. :)

  197. RachelW
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:20:39

    Ooh, amazing giveaway. I’d probably have to either put the entire Black Dagger Brotherhood series by JRWard on it or A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness.

  198. Jess (The Cozy Reader)
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:24:57

    I’d download HEARTLESS by Gail Carriger! I can’t wait to read that and probably will not want to wait for the print edition…though I have the rest of the series in print.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  199. Las
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:24:59

    I’d finally try Nalini Singh’s Archangel series. I hadn’t been able to get into it at all but I finally sat down and read the first chapter at B&N yesterday and I really enjoyed it.

  200. Victoria
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:28:16

    I think I would download Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, because it is one of my favorite books and it would be awesome to have it on hand all the time!

  201. kathybaug
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:36:12

    Since I would give the nook color to my husband, I would load Carved in Bone by Jefferson Bass. Then I’d let him pick the rest of his books :)

    This is so nice of you, Jane.

  202. Jody
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:37:51

    I would download Camwolf by J.L. Merrow or Pricks and Pragmatism. I haven’t decided which one sounds better, maybe both.

    Love Sara F’s reviews!

  203. Diane
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:38:23

    I would download Nalini Singh’s Kiss of Snow. It’s only out in hardcover right now and a little expensive.

  204. Nonny
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:41:36

    I’d probably look for ebook copies of Anne Bishop’s Black Jewels, which I’ve been meaning to do my annual reread of. :)

    I would load Lorelei James’ Rough Riders series, because I stopped reading after the first one, and want to finish up the series.

  206. Sue R
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:50:43

    Awesome! I would download Magic Slay!!! Thanks for chance.

  207. Sandy M
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:53:39

    I would probably get Tangled Past by Leah Braemel which was recently reviewed on another site and sounded too interesting to pass.
    Thanks for the chance to win!!

  208. Little Lamb Lost
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:56:02

    I would load PB Ryan’s Murder in a Mill Town. It is a historical mystery by an author who depending on genre, also writes as Patricia Ryan and Louisa Burton.

  209. Ann Rose
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:56:31

    I would download Ann Marston’s Sword in Exile trilogy, since I’m having so much fun re-reading it (for the 5th time) in its paper version.

  210. Helen
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:57:22

    I would load A job from hell by Jayde Scott, I have been reading reviews and it sounds right up my alley. I’ve been gobbling up indies at an alarming rate!

  211. Leslie
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:08:33

    If I won the nook I’d load Veronica Roth’s Divergent then give it to my teenage daughter who reads more than me.

  212. Deborah R
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:08:40

    I would have to get the I-Team books by Pamela Clare!

  213. katieM
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:13:42

    I would download C.E. Murphy’s Spirit Dancers (Walker Papers #6). The book has been out a while, but it hardback or ebook only.

  214. Stacy S
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:17:36

    I would download Catch of The Day by Kristan Higgins.

  215. Sarah A-B
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:39:38

    This is a super generous give-a-way.

    I’d have to say the first thing
    I’d download would be George R.R. Martin’s new book A DANCE WITH DRAGONS. Not a romance, I know. But I (along with everyone else) have waited YEARS for this book.

  216. Miguelina Perez
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:43:43

    I would download Jennifer Becton’s “Charlotte Collins”.

    Thanks for the chance.

  217. Amy p.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:44:06

    It would be jd robb’s “In Death” series. My copies are falling apart and I would love to get them organized and clear off a book shelf!

  218. Aislinn
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:46:24

    I would dearly love Kris Kennedy’s DEFIANT for my e-reader.

  219. Jeramia
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:48:33

    As it would be for my daughter, probably Toot and Puddle.

  220. Miss Lauren
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:49:56

  221. Natasha A.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:55:21

    Probably something from Netalley or it would finally be my excuse to buy the new Patricia Briggs.
    Awesome contest btw! :D

  222. Amber E.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:56:47

    I actually would download Courtney Milan’s new book UNLOCKED, especially since you can only read it as an ebook. It seems like it has been getting nothing but an A review.

  223. SandyW
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 19:58:14

    What an incredibly nice thing to do.
    Connie Brockway has just re-released ‘Anything for Love’ in digital only. That would have to be first.

  224. Allison
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:07:30

    It would probably be Magic Slays, because I’m starting that series now and will be ready for the new book!! But there would be many more to follow!

  225. Leesa
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:13:47

    I think I would download the I-Team series by Pamela Clare. I hear such good things!

  226. Thalia
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:18:17

    I’d download LKH’s Hit List hahahaha j/k

    It’d probably be the latest I-Team book by Pamela Clare.

    Thanks for the contest!

  227. Ju Dimello
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:20:27

    Thanks for the giveaway..

    I would download “Kate Walker -12 point guide to writing romance” :-D

  228. LORI
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:20:38

    i would download childrens books to help my child become a better reader and have a little fun while doing it

  229. Anne
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:22:11

    Unveiled by Courtney Milan, as well as all the books I have in my free Kindle on my desktop computer. But can I tell you how much I don’t like sitting at a desk to read a book?

  230. Evangeline Holland
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:28:24

    Silk is For Seduction by Loretta Chase!

  231. Lauren
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:32:37

  232. Danielle D
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:37:21

  233. Eboni-Rai
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:39:13

    The 1st in Kevin Hearn’s Iron Druid series Hounded. I’m excited to read an UF with a male protagonist & with 3 books out I can gobble them up.

  234. Hannah
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:40:06

    I would download Deeply, Desparately by Heather Webber–I read the first in the series over the weekend and am eager to continue!

  235. Jodi
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:41:04

    Ooh, how neat! I’d actually add A Red Herring without Mustard.

  236. Colleen B
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:44:35

    i have no idea what the first book i would download would be! i’d have to look through a bunch to figure it out.

  237. Annette
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:51:03

    What a nice offer! Since I’ve never read a book by Courtney Milan, and since I applaud her reasoned approach to this self-publishing venture and so admire her generosity in helping other writers with her knowledge, I’d start with downloading Unlocked.

  238. Caffey
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 20:53:25

    Oh way neat!! So many I would love to put in there! I think the first one I’d go buy especially for this one to read would be Celeste Bradley & Susan Donovan’s A COURTESAN’S GUIDE TO GETTING YOUR MAN. Love both of these authors so cool they put together a book!

    cathiecaffey @

  239. Lori S.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:00:58

    What a wonderful offer! The first thing I’d download would be Larry Correia’s Hard Magic.


  240. Brandy
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:07:09

    So my daughter and I could both read it, I would download The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross.

  241. Anya
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:12:03

    I would download the rest of the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. I was able to read the first book, but haven’t been able to read the rest of the series yet (poor recent college graduate, too many books to choose from, etc.) And then I would download as many as I could afford of the ebooks you guys have reviewed over the years that I’ve bookmarked :)

  242. Patti
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:20:33

    I would download Captives of the Night and Silk is for Seduction by Loretta Chase. Thank you!

  243. Kathy
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:21:28

    The very first thing I would download is Julia Spencer-Fleming’s newest, ONE WAS A SOLDIER.

  244. Troy Daulton
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:24:20

    What an awesome giveaway! I’d go with Harry Potter or Percy Jackson. Me and my son have read them all but I’d like to read them again.

  245. Liza Lester
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:25:26

    I want Magic Slays, but I also want Mieville’s Embassytown…it will be hard to choose. I had serious tech envy on the plane last week.

  246. Jane
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:47:35

    My first book would be Sarah Addison Allen’s “Garden Spells” to read for the new book club I just joined. Or maybe I’d download the Miles Vorkosigan books for a trip I’m taking in August, or the new Loretta Chase that is coming out.

    It would definitely get a good home here.

  247. Nita
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:49:59

    Hmm, probably the newest ACRO book coming out at the end of June, Taken By Fire by Sydney Croft.

  248. Karen Witkowski
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:51:51

    Probably CHANGELING MOON by Dani Harper.

    Thanks for the great contest!

  249. Fiona
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:52:05

    This is so nice of you! I’d download “Sparks Fly” by Lucy Kevin.

  250. Jeanne Miro
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 21:52:45

    I would download The Naked Prince by Sally MacKenzie. It sounds like the perfect book to read while relaxing on a beach chair this summer.

    I’d love to win the Nook used or not because they closed our local bookstore and with the busy beach traffic that had invaded our town on their way to the beach at the ocean two miles down the road I’d rather just lounge on in a beach chair in my back yard with a fun book.

    Ah the joy of being able to “pick up” a book without even leaving the house – heaven!

  251. Tinker Bell
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:01:55

    Thank you for the offer. I’d read “Go the Fuck to Sleep” by Adam Mansbach when it comes out. Otherwise I’d finish Flatland :)

  252. Joanna K.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:02:57

    The first book I’d load onto the Nook Color if I won it would be any of Nalini Singh’s “Kiss of Snow”. Loved it to bits and pieces even after my second reading of it!

  253. romsfuulynn
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:14:18

    I’d download the first Thomas Perry “Jane” book.

  254. Daisy
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:19:02

    I would download the newest JD Robb book since I am a couple behind.

  255. alicet
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:25:06

    I would download Yours to Keep by Shannon Stacey. I enjoyed the first book in the series and read (but didn’t really like) the second book. However this third one seems to be a keeper so I would love to have a chance to read it soon.

  256. TaraR
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:31:48

    I would load Unlocked, the reviews have been so amazing!

  257. SaraC
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:34:23

    I would download Julia Quinn’s Just Like Heaven!

  258. Rachel
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:38:35

    Am just starting to break out of my historical romance bubble, so I’d go for JR Ward.

  259. Margo K.
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:45:57

    I have read some wonderful reviews about a book from one of my favorite authors, Julie Garwood called “The Bride”. It sounds like it has an intriguing historical romance storyline, which would make a great summer read to download and would be a perfect way to start reading adventures on a much wanted Nook Color. Thank you for thinking of others by passing along your Nook Color!

  260. Elling
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:50:11

    I would download The Blythes are Quoted by L.M. Montgomery.

  261. Katie
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 22:53:42

    I would load Pride & prejudice first – always a great book to have on hand!

  262. Maria. Maria
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 23:06:49

    I have been waiting for Storm’s Heart by Thea Harrison. I would totally get loaded first.

  263. Brittany Gale
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 23:19:32

    I would get Water For Elephants. I’ve been really wanting to read it!


  264. SarahFlorida
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 23:31:23

    I would load up either Cherise Sinclair’s Make Me Sir or Shannon Stacey’s Yours To Keep :) both books I am looking forward to reading.

  265. Sharon
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 23:32:33

    Anything by Anna Quindlan. I just discovered her and can’t get enough.

  266. Suzanna Medeiros
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 23:44:31

    I, too, would give it to my husband (I just got a Kobo Touch and am in love with it.) I know he’s looking forward to reading the Sammy Hagar biography, Red.

  267. Amanda
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 23:47:53

    Wow! This is an awesome giveaway. I just bought 23 of the 25 books Unbridled Books offered as part of their 25 ebooks for 25 cents promotion. So in short, I’d download all of those and get started on them instead of having to sit at the computer to read them. I’m particularly interested in reading Panopticon.

  268. jubee
    Jun 12, 2011 @ 23:50:23

    I’d download A Girl of the Limberlost. Thanks for the giveaway!

  269. Pam S (pams00)
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 00:05:13

    I’d try to get Demon Hunting in Dixie by Lexxi George or Carolyn Jewel’s latest Immortal book. This is a very generous giveaway. It would be much used here :).

    pams00 @

  270. Nastassia
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 00:07:35

    I would load No Mercy by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

  271. Tez Miller
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 00:09:27

    I would load Lauren Dane’s GODDESS WITH A BLADE – a full-length novel which is only currently available in eBook.

  272. Mike Holm
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 00:23:12

    It would be Twain’s autobiography. I want to read it, but would probably sprain something trying to tote it around.

  273. Marie C.
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 00:44:28

    Magic Slay would definitely be my first choice!

  274. Lorraine from CA
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 00:58:09

    If I won, I would give it to my husband. He has been hinting that he might want to have his own ereader. I would probably load a couple of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files onto the Nook. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  275. Christine Roehrich
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 01:19:39

    The first book I would load would be either Shannon Stacy’s Yours to Keep or maybe the Lauren Dane Goddess with a Blade too many choices….

  276. wade2121
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 01:41:23

    Awesome giveaway!

    Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews would be the 1st book I’d load.

  277. Mitzi H
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 01:49:18

    I would use this to read to my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter. She doesn’t care much for the black/white screen on my Kindle, but I think the color screen on the Nook would make reading to her much more interesting/captivating. She loves books, especially those with lots of colorful illustrations and I truly believe that if I had a Nook with her books/stories on it and one that I can call her ‘special book reader’….like her Nana’s Kindle special book reader that cannot be touched by anyone except Nana (that’s me), she would love reading her stories on it. I’m certain it would become her ‘most cherished possession’…and nobody (including her big brother) would be able to take it away from her.

  278. Mitzi H
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 01:56:45

    Dang…I forgot to leave book I would buy and I tried to edit, but couldn’t figure out what to do. The book I would buy 1st (of many) is: Llama Llama Mad at Mama… because (miss independent 3 1/2 year old) is just like her mama was at that age (my daughter) and all of us can use all the help we can get…Hehehe.

  279. Tolouse
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 02:51:56

    I would start by downloading some Lisa Kleypas. I only recently discovered the greatness that is her books, and I’m now catching up with her backlist. Probably Sugar Daddy first.

  280. Dena
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 03:13:13

    A Song of Ice and Fire! Finally caving and buying the series seems like a good inauguration for a new Nook. :)

  281. Ann G
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 03:50:05

    There are so many books I would download if I won a Nook…maybe Julia Quinn’s new book.

  282. Dawn Jackson
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 05:14:02

    I’d give the Nook to my son who’s serving with the Marines in Afghanistan and I’d download a book on building a greenhouses, as it was something he asked me to get him. I mailed a hardcover book to him and the indivduals who sort the mail for the troops in Afghanistan, burned several pallets of mail because they didn’t want to sort it. The book I sent him was in one of the packages destroyed. The nook color would give him the pictures in color and diagrams as well as the hardcover book, and also the ability to download instantly instead of waiting six weeks for a package that may or may not get there.

  283. Maureen
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 05:31:33

    The first download I would pick is Yours To Keepy by Shannon Stacey since it has gotten so many good reviews.

  284. Auraya
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 05:48:46

    I already have an ebookreader, but it’s a bit (pretty much completely) broken, so I’ve been looking for a new one. I tend to drop these things as well. I would transfer my copy of Kiss of Snow to the Nook. That way I could finally finish it.

  285. Dunja
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 06:06:50

    Yours To Keep by Shannon Stacey becuse there is no other way to read it but as an ebook.

  286. ReneeK
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 06:09:29

    My first download would be “On the Way to the Wedding” by Julia Quinn, because somehow I MISSED a Bridgerton novel.

    I (being an early adopter when I’m not poor) had an original Nook 3G, but it isn’t doing so well these days. I may have been too rough with it. My page turn buttons even cracked!

    I promise, I have mended my ways. I handle new devices much more gently now.

  287. Gabrielle
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 06:43:05

    My first download would have to be The Hit List from Laurel K. Hamilton. I love her books.

  288. VickyTinky
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 06:53:29

    My first download would be “Hunt The Moon” by Karen Chance! I love Karen Chance’s books!

  289. Mary Beth B
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 07:10:46

    My first download would be Elle Jasper’s Everdark!
    Thanks for this fun contest :-)

    Like you, I’ve dropped my old Sony PRS 505 too many times and it’s held together by tape now.

  290. Vee
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 07:20:15

    My first download would be This Side Of The Grave by Jeaniene Frost!

  291. Tiffany B
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 07:27:09

    This is really nice! Hmm.. I would load When You Dare by Lori Foster. I’ve been waiting. I’m not really sure why.

  292. Abi
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 07:31:52

    Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister is on my list of books I must read soon, so I’d load it first. Then who knows what would come next. :) Thanks for sharing.

  293. Helen
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 07:36:18

    I think it would have to be the new Cheryl Brooks book.

  294. Ivy
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 07:41:09

    How sweet of you, thanks for the chance. The first book I’d load would be Gabriel’s Inferno. I’ve read it, but something about it really got to me & I know I’ll go back to it again & again. I’ll be getting it in print also…First book in what seems like forever to affect me this much.

    Thanks again!

  295. Tracy B
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 07:46:20

  299. Sherry S.

    I would probably download Trace of Fever by Lori Foster because I really want that book.

  300. Shelley Elliott
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 08:19:47

    The first book I would download is Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris.

  301. Camilla
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 08:21:19

    I would download Yours to Keep… the contemporary has never let me down!!!

  302. Meanne
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 08:24:32

    Yours to Keep by Shannon Stacey sounds awesome. I would love to read it on a Nook….Sending you my thanks and greetings from The Netherlands!

  303. Emily
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 08:33:03

    I would load Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley, I am excited for this book and I loves me some Jacobite historicals! I also love when there are multiple time periods with ancestors and modern day women both having awesome love lives. I haven’t had time to get to it yet, so here’s hoping!

  304. Heather H
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 08:42:56

  307. Emily
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 09:09:01

    I would get Just Like Heaven – I love, love, love the color and even though I have it in paperback, want to see it glowing at me from the Nook Color.

  308. Kathryn
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 09:11:29

    The newest Bourne thriller, for my husband :)

  309. LauraB
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 09:18:07

    I would download the Girl in the Iron Corset (just to see the cover in color)!

  310. Jessica D
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 09:19:12

    I’d be poppin’ over to Gutenberg to load it up with classics — Austen, Gaskell, Wodehouse, Conan Doyle — to get the hang of it, then transfer my already-purchased but yet-unread copy of Unlocked over from my PC.

  311. riga
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 09:20:22

    I would download Vienna Waltz by Teresa Grant.

  312. Kanchb
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 09:20:22

    My first book would be “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society” cause it made me remember why I love reading so much and that books can really be enchanting escapes.

  313. thebookmistress
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 09:21:13

    I would be getting the latest from Annabel Joseph. I’ve just been on a binge with her books and I need MORE.

  314. Katie
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 09:25:33

    Hummm…I would load The Emerald Talisman by Brenda Pandos. I’m halfway through the book right now, and really need to finish it!


  315. Maria Pia
    Jun 13, 2011 @ 09:29:22

    I would definitely load Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn. I’ve wanted to read the Smythe-Smith stories for years ever since the first mention of the musicale.

    I would definitely download Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett to be my first book on the Nook.

    I would load Small Favor by Jim Butcher as I get caught up for the release of Ghost Story next month.

    Though I like the suggestion of Courtney Milan’s “Unlocked”, I already bought it, so I would load “Captives of the Night” by Loretta Chase, wackadoo cover & all.

    I would download the upcoming YA book Hourglass by Myra McEntire. It comes out tomorrow and I’m really excited about it.

    I’m torn between Eloisa James’ Storming the Castle and Terry Pratchett’s Soul Music. Hmmm….decisions, decisions.

    I would download “Yours to Keep”. I was excited to read it after your review and then discovered it was only available in ebook or audio format. So now I guess I need an ereader! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I think I would load a picture book for my kids. My 6-year old daughter gets a kick out of borrowing library books with my older Sony, but the covers and the drawings always disappoint her. And my 4-year old won’t even glance at the screen because there are so many words and no drawings :) It’s not quite in the budget at the moment to buy them their own dedicated tablet or color reader, but I would dearly love to cut down on the number of books we have to find shelves for in their rooms…
