And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Weekend Reading

Debbie,

 

What's your secret for using the "add product" feature?  I have not been able to post anything for a couple of weeks.  I've even noticed on the freebie board that only the links are now posted without the book covers. 

 

Any suggestions?

Hey TarHeelGirl it's good to see you.

this problem has been going on for ever it seems.

What I do is to type in all the text first and type in the title of the book I want to "add" then after all the text is in I go to the add product feature and replace the text version with the add product by highlighting it. Something else that seems to work is after you finish the post edit it and the add product will work with text then too.

The problems will probably not go away sorry :smileysad:

The Language of Flowers  I just finished The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. I can't decide if I totally bought the ending, but it was a very fine read. I now know more about flowers than I ever dreamed. I also liked the way the writer went back and forth between present time and the past. It made perfect sense and I thought it worked for telling this story.

 

As a writer myself, I read lots of novels, which is what I also write. I thought this one was very well done.

 

Anyone else feel the same?

Re: Tell us what you're reading right now and what's next on your shelf

I am reading Broken Skin by Stuart MacBride.  It is the 3rd in the Logan McRae series.  The first one was a Free Friday book some time ago and I really got to like the characters.  Logan is sort of like a Scottish Harry Bosch!

Weekend Reading

Beauty to Die For  My weekend reading is "Beauty to Die for" by Kim Alexis and Mindy Starns Clark.  I wasn't sure what to expect, but so far, I'm impressed. It's a well-written murder mystery.

Judging by the cover, you would think so, and it kind of is, but not totally either.  Does that answer you question? ha-ha

The main character is a former model who now has a beauty products company. Without giving too much away, her company is participating in a retreat at a spa and a murder takes place during the event.  So unlike so many cozy mysteries, she doesn't go snooping around looking for trouble, but she does become involved because of her business.  It is still a fairly light read, but so far, it's maybe a little more suspenseful than some cozy mysteries.
