For all of you who are excited for crafting books to become available for Nook Color, I just found some goodies to tide us over!!!
The websites for several excellent crafting magazines (Cloth Paper Scissors & Quilting Arts, so far) are offering a FREE eBook download if you sign up for their newsletter. Basically, every magazine published by Interweave Press does this, and each magazine has a different freebie, but you really don't get a lot of email from them. I actually have been subscribing to their newsletters for months before I figured out this benefit!
The free eBooks are in PDF format, but the two I got so far have looked absolutely perfect on the Nook Color. They're in full color and look just like the magazines do in real life. Pinch & zoom seems to work, and they can be viewed in portrait or landscape.
Enjoy! If I find others, I'll post the info!

BN will not let us post links to external websites. Consider trying www then the name of the magazine and then dot com. Or use the google.
I just got 4 off Artist Daily too, and they had dozens more!

The PDF came out really nice! I love how you can resize it and the pattern is crystal clear! Yup, this is yet another reason that I am so happy I picked up a Nook Color for Christmas! I am tempted to head over to Interweave and download a couple of the other e-books. The one for Spinning to Socks looked really cool!

Hey! I went to Interweave and did not see where any of their books are offered in "NOOK" format. Are you downloading these "EBooks" they are offering directly onto your Nook instead
of your computer ?? Like the knitting mags?? monthly issues?? they are about $15 a issue ??

Paige - I did not go thru the Interweave site. I went directly to the websites for a few of their publications (in my case: Cloth Paper Scissors, Quilting Arts, Artist Daily) and each has a button at the top of the page that says "Free Stuff" or something along those lines. Click that and a drop down menu will come up that says eBooks.
They are not in NOOK format, as I stated in the original post they are PDF format. And they are free. I downloaded them directly to my Nook Color using the wifi connection.
Hopefully BN will not have a problem with this link because apparently I'm not being clear enough with my instructions on how to find these.
