I ended up finding a good deal on a
But there is a local group on Facebook that is a 'garage sale' group. And I've gotten in the habit of checking there daily for the odd dorm item or great furniture deal.
Low and behold a gal I know had this up for sale. I messaged her and asked how much and while it was a fair price for a second hand Nook, I decided to pass.
Then another lady put one up the same day. I asked how much she was wanting (more out of curiosity than anything) and the gal I know with the Nook messaged me back and offered me hers at half of what she had it listed for.
Suffice it to say, THIS...was a bargain! An offer I couldn't refuse, so to speak.
So I bought it.
I was tickled to see that she only had 4 books on there. at all. (this poor little device really needed a bookish-folk home) and that one of them was 50 Shade of Gray. Now I was not going to stoop to the 5SG level, I'm old and I went through the 91/2 Weeks craze in my glory days, but I hate to dis a book I haven't read. So now for free I can read and intelligently rip up this particular piece of il-literature
(sorry couldn't help it!)
The first thing I did was sync it to my Adobe Digital Editions and then borrowed a book from my local library.
I'm pretty happy at the moment! :)
