    How many ebooks do you have on your reader?

      I have about 119 ebooks on my Nook(a couple are short stores).  I have a lot of those free ebooks B&N offer, and a bunch of great classics.  Then I have A LOT of fantasy books, that is going to take me forever to catch up with. 

       

      I also have 1 audiobook on my Nook, that I'm listening to now.

          I have about 200, a few are free.  No audiobooks...

            over 400 ebooks bought over the last 10+ years. I read them first on my various Palm handhelds, then my iPhone, now I'm reading them on my nook.

                  I have 35 eBooks on nook... plus 10 in the archive in "my eBook library". Nine in the archive were free from the B&N site! (Those in the archive are staged for future acess...)

                   

                  Those on nook are all from the B&N site - a few were free, the rest were purchased. They consist of science fiction, thrillers, suspense, political intrigue, fantasy and... (gasp!) ChristianTheology.

                   

                  There are currently 65 titles in my eWish list, including many non-fiction. I will venture into sideloading at some point down the road from other vendors, but in the mean time I have found plenty of eBooks to keep me interested at B&N.

                   

                  I recall reading posts early on in my nook adventure that complained about the lack of titles at B&N compared to amazon.com, but like I've said, I've found plenty to hold my interest at B&N. Don't get me wrong... I love amazon.com. Most of my hardcopy books are from them and it's my first stop for reader reviews. Of course they have many titles that are available for the Kindle that B&N does not have available for nook. But if it's something I've just got to read, I'll buy the hardcopy... probably from amazon (Prime membership). If I can't wait and B&N has it in-store, I'll go by my local and pick it up. 

                   

                  All told, I'm having a great nook experience... my first in the eBook world. And I look forward to a solid and lasting eRelationship with Barnes & Noble! :smileywink:

Elloras Cave , Loose, other publisher sites, Sony ebooks...there are somany sites out there! But I mainly visit them for pricing issues.

                    Bought my nook in mid-September, have 268 books on it now.

                        I got mine as a "Ha, you're old" birthday gift at the end of September from my (older, ha!) mother.

                         

                        I currently have 2 sideloaded books that are mine.

                        I have 1 sideloaded (borrowed) library book.

                        I have 212 B&N NOOKbooks.

                         

                        The vast majority were free, several were under $4, and maybe 10 cost between $5 and $15.  

                         

                        I've also read at least thirty library books since then.

                         

                        (The thing I'll miss most when I finally get a job again is the hours and hours I can currently spend reading.)

                            Had my Nook since Jan 15, 2010, and I am close to 600 not counting Archived.  :smileyhappy:

                                I started reading ebooks on my laptop and then moved to an iPod touch about two and a half years ago.  Since then I've had ebooks in one form or another on every cell phone I've owned, mostly Android now; although, I still love reading on my 4th gen Touch every now and then late at night in bed.

                                On my NOOKcolor I have 267 ebooks, many of which are free epubs I've collected over the past year or so.  I have just over 700 books on my Nook Classic.  Roughly 400 of them are pdbs from sites like ereader,com, Fictionwise, and BooksOnBoard.  I really hope that B&N expands the functionality of the NC to include pdbs in the near future...I'm going broke repurchasing my favorite novels as epubs.  :smileywink:

                            I got mine as a birthday gift the end of August. I have 380 books in my B&N library, most of them free books. I started collecting them before I got my nook, including all the free classics they had over the summer. I also have 186 books sideloaded in My Documents, all free. Most of those are from project Gutenberg and some from Borders, and 4 library books. I am not going to admit how many books I have on my wishlist at B&N. I apparently have greatly overestimated the amount of time I can spend reading. I also have been seriously neglecting my knitting and my writing to spend all my free time reading. I guess it's better than neglecting the kids, though my house could be cleaner. When I'm 80 I'm pretty sure I won't say I wish I had spent more time scrubbing the floors. :smileyvery-happy:

                              Ilve had the Nook for a year now and CNook for a month.  169 books, some free, plus 65 sideloaded.

                               

                              I grab all the free books I can find lol and I purchase from several different places.

                                I have 54 on my nook right now and I have had if for a week!

                                 

                                Most of them are free from BN, but I have set a limit to what I can spend as well. I bought quite a few collections of books so all told I really have about 200 books available to me right now.

                                 

                                I bought 2 volumes of "50 Classic Books", the Complete Works of Jane Austen, a collection of all Wizard of Oz books, the Anne of Green Gables collection and a few others. I have been completely obsessed with reading...finished about 3 books since Christmas and I think my boyfriend is getting a little annoyed with me right now!

                                 

                                Good thing I have to start teaching again tomorrow so I can get "back to normal"!
