Got eReader?

I have an iPod Touch and I love so many of my apps. I am having a hard time, though, trying to get used to reading on this thing! I have heard some people say they like it, but for me….please just give me the book!

Maybe I’d change my tune if I had an iPad….Anyway, there are several free eReaders out there that you can use with your iPod, iTouch, iPad, etc.

I already have the iTouch Kindle eReader from Amazon. One thing I liked about this reader is that I am always on the lookout for freebies, and I get a lot of emails from Amazon with free ebook offerings—and many of these are classics. Check out the free Kindle eReader for many devices and the Kindle free ebooks.

clipOk. So, I already had the kindle one and I Still want real books. But, now I see that until July 15th, you can download the BN eReader, and bring your device in…and show the guys at The B&N Café what you are reading…and get a free tall Starbucks® coffee (hot or iced). These days, I’m thinking iced…

So, I went ahead and downloaded the B&N eReader. That seems ok. Then I went looking for free ebooks (you already know I’m cheap). In this part, though, I was really disappointed. The offerings they have for free ebooks are many (like 5 pages) But…I found most of the books offensive. I know, you go digging in the bargain bin, you can find some junk. But, most of them were, to me, overly sexual—majorly—or, really gross, horror type stuff. Suffice it to say, there was not one free one I would put on my eReader to show the folks at the café—I’d probably scare the kids making the coffee.

Anyway, go ahead and check out the link to the B&N eReader and IF you can find something to download (you probably should buy that, the prices are ok) you can get a free coffee!

ok. Now, I have these two and my college kid says I need to look at Stanza. This eReader, too, is free. From what I can tell so far, you can access a ton of free books, magazines etc on here as well…but does not seem to work with iTouch…this will take some more research!

Do you read online? What do you use as an eReader?

  1. I also prefer a good old hard copy of a book. I do have my eye on the Ipad though as it looks like a great tool. ;) We were looking at them at Best Buy a few weeks ago. Yep, very cool!
