Can you believe this, Ms. “I’m not going to read ebooks” got a Barnes and Noble Nook for Christmas! And she also gave one to her Sis-in-Law! Have I just lost it. Well I got the Adobe Digital Edition loaded on my computer (part of the process to get books into the Nook) then my husband wants us to head for the country, so I try to activate the laptop because believe me there’s no wifi in the Logan county hinterlands. Well the B&N servers must not have been expecting all of us wanting to fire up Santa’s presents. I couldn’t get my Digital Edition Adobe ID to activate. Bummer…
If I knew it wouldn’t take long to get it all powered up and ready. I would have had it loaded from my PC and been on my way. The Nook didn’t take very long, it suggests in the instructions to give it 3 hours, well mine was charged in about 30 minutes or less. So tonight I plugged it in to my computer and presto chango, I dragged and dropped books into the Nook.
Ta da…. I did it. I’ve got some Adobe Digital free books loaded, going to try Gutenburg.org for more (this may make us all read the Classics that our English teachers tried so long ago to convince us were good) and I’m good to go. This is the new frontier and I’m ready to pack this little book size thing full and next time I head for the hills I’ve got my book bag packed.
P.S. B&N have the whole marketing thing down, you’ve got to put in your Credit Card before you get the free stuff, but business is business, and even free has a price.
