Nook Color System Upgrade

On Wednesday night my Nook Color automatically upgraded the operating system. I can now pinch the screen when I'm using the browser. I haven't noticed other changes yet.

Schools, E-Readers, Public Library Books

Started this discussion. Last reply by Linda L. Rosario Torres Jan 20, 2011. 1 Reply

I am curious to know if schools are considering the ability for e-readers to use public library books when purchasing. Is that a factor? Or, since that requires checking out books with library…Continue

iPads as e-readers

Started Jan 13, 2011 0 Replies

I know many people are considering using the iPad as an e-reader. From what I have garnered from discussions it seems as though you would not go with an iPad if the main goal is to read books. The…Continue

"Good morning - I am about to check out a set of Nooks to a teacher and her students for the first time and I was wondering if you have or know of a survey that the students and teacher could fill out about the experience. Thank you. Judy Hauser"

Barnes & Noble Account to handle classroom set

I'm purchasing 30 Nook Touches to check out to teachers and school librarians who want to try them out with a class before purchasing. I will be starting with public domain books but in the next fiscal year I may purchase a title or two and buy SD cards so that educators could add their own content for students. I'm going with the B&N service (not sure of the official name) that works with organizations through POs. There is no charge for the service and if I want a public domain book put…See More

"Hello - May I ask how many Nooks you purchased for students and how you are handling accounts? I was told I can only have, I believe, six devices on one account."

Two accounts on a Kindle Fire?

Do you ever have a question and you think you know the answer but you have to ask it out loud or in an email to a group? I have one. I have a Kindle Fire that circulates to employees. The account on the Kindle is under our secretary's name because she has the credit card we used to buy the device and the books on the device. An employee would like to check out the Kindle Fire and put her email on it to see what it looks like and how it works. Can she do this or would it mess up the secretary's…See More

Adding OpenLibrary books to Sony Reader

I have an older Sony Reader Pocket Edition. It works great and I can add public library ebooks to it with no problem. I recently checked out an Epub from OpenLibrary and tried to sync it to my Sony. It would not even download in the Reader Library. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or if, for some reason, the OpenLibrary Epubs do not work with Sonys? Thank you!

Brown Bag Lunch - E-Reader Roundup

Posted on December 6, 2010 at 5:43pm 9 Comments

I thought I would let fellow e-reader lovers know that today at MPOW I had a brown bag lunch called E-Reader Roundup. It was for employees and 18 showed up. It was a tight squeeze in the Information Center but a lot of fun. I brought my Nook Color and Sony Reader Pocket Edition. Some folks brought their e-readers: iPad (I know - a tablet but tech services brought it in to show the e-reader functions), new Kindle, old Kindle, Kindle DX, Pandigital, Sony - so we had a nice variety. The majority… Continue

Google e-books?

I just looked at Google Books: http://books.google.com/ebooks and I see that you can buy books for the Nook and Sony readers. Has anyone tried this yet? Just curious.
