  1. Has anyone found one of these three sources of free e-books to have consistently better quality formatting? If the same book is available at all three, which would you use?
  2. Does anyone have any experiences they could share about these 2 similar curricula? A2 almost seems to be a more robust version of RC; however, RC won a lot of reader awards last year. Hmmm...:confused1: By the way, I am new. This is my first post. Be gentle! Katie
  3. Hello, all! Just bought a NOOK this past Sunday (early Christmas present from hubby) and I need NOOK friends to share books with. Any of you have a NOOK? :D (FWIW, I may wind up buying a Kindle eventually, too, just so I don't feel left out of anything :lol: )
  4. My mom can't decide which to get my sister. I have a Nook, and my mom has a Kindle. So we are not partial to either. :001_smile: I bought a Nook so I could borrow library books because at the time Kindle didn't have that option. That is no longer an issue. My sister will read 99% of ebooks that are free. So, my mom would like to know who offers a larger selection of free ebooks, Amazon or B&N? Another point is that I would be able to lend my sister some books that I have on my Nook, but I wouldn't be able to if she had a Kindle.
  5. My mom wants a Kindle mainly to use for Crossword puzzles. She wants to use it as a dictionary and as a translator for clues that need to be converted to/from multiple foreign languages. I don't see her using is to read books, which makes me hesitant to spend the money if there is some other device that would do the job for her.
  6. We are thinking about ereaders for the older 2 kids for Christmas. Here are the ones we are considering... Kindle for $79 Kindle touch for $99 Kindle fire for $199 Nook Simple touch for $99 Nook Color for $199 What are the pros and cons of these for 11 and 9 year old kids? Would they be able to share books on them or will we end up needing to buy twice? What works well with your kids around their ages? Thanks!
  7. iPadII (32 gig wifi), Nook, Kindle, Fire I need this for reading, teaching the kids language, possible powerpoint, and audio books. I would like more than a simple choice but rather an explanation of why. Thanks in advance.
  8. Sometime during my six-or-so-month sabbatical from these boards, I purchased and fell in love with an iPad 2. For those of you who do not recall, I have been quite vocal about wanting to wait for an Android 3.0 tablet. You can click on the 'android' tag below to read some of the previous threads where I commented on this topic. Contrary to popular believe, Reg did not purchase an iPad simply because SpyCar stole one from his son! :D Here is my version of the story: It all started with the National Spelling Bee. DS13 went to the National Spelling Bee last year and this year I promised him that if he won our regional bee again, I would purchase him an Android 3.0 tablet of his choosing. As it turns out, this was a BIG DEAL to him, since the speller which he befriended at last year's National Bee, also the son of a mom on these boards, had been given an iPad for his achievement. My son spent time building 3D models of his future tablet in blender and rendering them and sending the images to his new friend and anyone who would listen. So my son won the regional bee again this year :hurray: in a hard-fought battle that required 52 perfect spellings! Tablet browsing turned to tablet shopping. The Motorola Xoom sounded somewhat disappointing from the reviews we read. The T-Mobile G-Slate (made by LG) was on our carrier and appeared to have everything imaginable (except battery life), but T-Mobile somehow believed that a 2-year contract was reasonable for that device. I beg to differ. Since the iPad 2 had come out two days before his win and the software he uses for spelling drill had just been ported to iPad, I opened up the competition to include the iPad 2. I encouraged my son to research all the options and pick what he preferred (though I would not sign up for a contract). In the end, my son chose an iPad 2 for three main reasons: his spelling app was ported to iPad, he liked the 4:3 shape better than the 16:9 shape of the widescreen Android tablets and he liked that it was what his friend had that he was so impressed with. So I bought two: a black one for my son and a white one for me (which I grudgingly share with the other children). While I still love our Android phones, here is what I *LOVE* about the iPad 2: 1) iTunes. As it turns out, the thing that I thought I would hate most about the iPad 2 is what I love most about it. Why? I really thought the idea of having to connect the tablet to a computer with a *cable* seemed so 20th-century! I also do not like the heavy-handed DRM that goes along with that. But the licensing model that goes along with this setup is what turned me completely around. I was in total disbelief when I first learned that I could pay for an app (or book or song or movie) once and use it on up to five different iDevices! Wow! There is NOTHING like this on Android to my knowledge. We have a big family and I can foresee more iPads in our future because of this! 2) The business model. I didn't know about 1) when I purchased the iPads, but still I felt Steve Jobs had done an excellent job pricing this thing. The price is fair, and the ability to hop into and out of a cellular plan month-to-month with the 3G models is what I wanted. Again, a big strike for the Android 3.0 tablets, which were mainly (exclusively?) being sold through cellular vendors at the time. 3) Apps. As mentioned, the availability of my son's spelling app was a deciding factor. We had communicated with the author and he is an Apple person, so porting to Android was not in the cards. Plus Android 3.0 was just coming out at the time and I learned (is it true?) that Google has a *different* Android Market for the tablets than the phones. So that meant that the Android Market would be pretty small, at least for a while. Put simply, there are some amazing applications for the iPad 2. DS13 LOVES photo booth, but there is also the *official* National Spelling Bee dictionary and many games which the kids enjoy, mostly free. FWIW, I estimate that we have spent just under US$100.00 on iPad 2 apps do date. 4) Book reader. I had previously purchase a Nook (another Android device), but it gets very little use due to a lack of decent free content, no backlight and poor rendering of PDFs. The iPad, by contrast, is a great reader that can be used in the dark, has a lock for screen rotation and has good zoom and pan capabilities. I find I prefer it for reading PDFs. Interestingly, we also use it for a bunch of content we have accumulated for the Kindle, even though we do not have a Kindle! 5) Movie player. Even though the iPad 2 does not have a widescreen display, I find that it is a GREAT movie player. It is extremely smooth and it allows you to tap to switch between a full-screen and a widescreen view of the movie. You can even turn on subtitles using closed-captioning. As it turns out, we have accumulated about 18 digital copies of various recent movie titles and I had been wondering what to do with them. The iPad 2 is the perfect solution, since they can now be viewed on multiple devices. 6) Casual browser. One of the main uses for a tablet to me was to have a convenient browser wherever I go. This browser serves many of my needs in this area, although I have to say it is inferior to Android due to the lack of Adobe Flash Player support. It's not a big deal for me since I use my Android phone if I am out-and-about and I need to access a website with Flash on it. 7) Syncs seamlessly with gMail. This was a total shock to me! I had no idea this would be possible right out of the box, but a clever person figured out a way to use some features of gMail together with some features of the iPad to make this work. For anyone who wants to do this, here are the instructions. Basically, you tell the iPad to treat gMail like a Microsoft Exchange server. Brilliant! 8) (Nearly) universal appeal. It is amazing how this one device is so popular with all but one member of the household. MomsintheGarden really does not like sharing a computer, so she will not touch it! (I like to tell her that she must have failed kindergarten! ;) ) But the rest of us find many, many uses for it! Regrets? One: I should have purchased the 64 GB version like MomsintheGarden said! Dislikes? One: Lack of Adobe Flash Player support. The bottom line is that while we still love our Android phones here we are now also sold on the iPad 2s. I can truthfully say that there has not been even a twinge of buyer's remorse which sometimes accompanies this type of purchase. This product has been well-thought-out and well-implemented from many different perspectives. The folks at Apple should be rightfully proud of what they have put together. One final note: I'm sorry ladies, but we generally do NOT use the iPads for school. We simply have too many children and too few iPads. It would not work out here. The one exception is that DS11 is currently using mine to read a draft PDF from SWB for a new writing book which is not yet published since we did not want to print something we will purchase in paper form later. We put this PDF on both the Nook and the iPad 2 and it looks better on the iPad. Thoughts?
  9. So I've decided that I want an ereader for Christmas this year. I'm really excited about the idea. But I'm soooo overwhelmed by the actual selection of devices!! I'm leaning toward a Kindle, largely due to name recognition. And because I adore Amazon. Are there any reasons I should reconsider and try another brand instead? At this point the reader will be used for my personal reading mostly because my kids are little-bitty still. Though I love the idea of playing audiobooks for my 3yo. A big selection of titles is important to me, but the absolute best screen quallity is not. as long as it won't trigger migraines. Touch screen or keyboard? I'm leaning toward keyboard because I don't want to put goopy hands all over the thing. My hands are goopy more often than I'd like to admit with three little kids around. Plus I have a touch screen phone and it drives me batty. Does the Kindle (or the other ereaders) allow you to type documents outside of a specific book? I'm not looking to write a novel here, but I used to like to keep a couple of lists in my phone - gift ideas, books to read, etc - and my new phone won't let me do that. I'm thinking I won't get the 3G, it doesn't seem that useful for me. I don't think it'll be a problem to load a bunch of books on it at home (we have wifi at home) and be fine wherever I go. Plus so many places have wireless now...do you think I'll be fine without it or is the 3G really awesome? OK, that's enough questions for one post! Help me please!
  10. My husband bought me the Nook 1st edition Wi-Fi for our anniversary. :) I'm really not good with electronics at all. I have several books on my PC in PDF form. Can anyone tell me how to get them on my nook? Thanks!
  11. I want something I can access the FREE books that are online..... SCM free ebooks, Gutenburg project books etc.... But I also want something smaller than my laptop that I can read things online with (blogs,message boards etc...) Also looking forward to listening to Pandora radio on it... Is this Nook Color going to give me what I want? I guess the only apprehension I have is inability to download anything from Amazon...which seems to have better pricing than B&N..
  12. A refurbished one from Overstock.com. It was $179. Is that a good deal? I have a Kindle and really like it, but this is for my wife. She wants to be able to do a bit more than just read on it (Angry Birds!) and she likes the idea of a backlit screen. We are flying from Hawaii to Texas in a couple weeks, and we are hoping we can use this to help entertain the girls on the airplane.
  13. I am getting an e-reader for my birthday next month. I have a few questions: 1. I am leaning toward buying the Nook (although the Nook Color is really cool). Any disadvantages to buying the Nook? Speak now or forever hold your peace :tongue_smilie: 2. Any favorite vintage/classic books that you use for homeschooling? 3. Do you have your child use your e-reader? 4. Do you download books like OPGTR on your e-reader? Why or why not? 5. Will I regret not getting a Nook Color? If you have one, what do you think of the apps? They do not seem as impressive as Apple :( 6. Any other advice?
  14. I am interested in buying an e-reader. Somehow the thought of having all of my books in one place is REALLY appealing. I have heard great things about the Kindle BUT I love that the Nook Color includes pictures for children's books. Also the NEW tablet functions are appealing. Does the Nook Color bother your eyes? What are the pros and cons in your view? If you had it to do over, would you buy something different?
  15. I just read an article on our local news station about ebook downloads. But when I look at the library catalog, the options are limited to downloading to PC or Mac. Have you been able to check out books to your Kindle?
  16. deleted, looks like some copyright infringement here
  17. I just confirmed this, I called BN and asked. Nook Color has an internal battery that can NOT be replaced, not by you, not by them. So once the battery goes, it is a piece of trash, unusable. Can you imagine of your iPhone or laptop had to be trashed once the battery went? I t is only under warranty for a year. After that, as soon as the battery goes, you are expected to toss it and buy a new one. Unacceptable, IMO, to throw it into our landfills and throw away our money. I was seriously considering buying it, but I won't now. Voting with my pocketbook. Just thought others would want to know this BEFORE purchasing. Regular NOOK battery can be replaced by consumers. Kindle can be sent in for replacement battery. Clearly, they made a conscious choice to make it irreplaceable.
  18. I am going to buy either a kindle, nook, nook color or a netbook. I am considering the kindle since it is such a great e-reader and amazon has tons of free books (and my family loves theirs). The nook is appealing since I can borrow books from the local library. The nook color is appealing since I can hack it to make it an android tablet where it can become a kindle and nook e-book reader as well as use android apps. The netbook seems like it would be better for forums like this one and homeschooling stuff + I can download all of the e-readers to take advantage of free books. What would you do if you were me?:bigear:
  19. Is it great for kids books? I have a Kindle but the b&w isn't ideal for the kiddos.
  20. I just recently bought a Nook and i'm wondering, when downloading books from the free websites, where exactly am I supposed to put them on my Nook. The one book I downloaded I put in "my documents" was that correct or was there somewhere else I could/should put them? Thanks
  21. I cannot stop looking for and downloading free books!!! I cannot imagine I will ever finish all of these........ Anyone else addicted??
  22. I've seen the Kindle (139) and the Nook (@250). I know you read books with them. Other than that, what can they do and not do. I know the Nook has color. I love print but I also have a bad habit of 7-8 partial read books at a go.
  23. So, why would I want a NookColor, rather than just an original Nook? The main differences I see is that one uses eInk, while the other is in color and is backlit. Oh, and the 3G. I don't need 3G (that I know of :confused: )so that wouldn't be an issue for me. I have decided I would rather have a Nook than a Kindle so it's just a matter of which Nook. Do I need to spend the extra on a color? Does it do anything else?
  24. Ok, I think I have it narrowed down to Nook 3G + Wi-Fi or NookColor 3G + Wi-Fi. Now I need to decide on NookColor or just the Nook. We are out of the picture book age, so I am wondering if just the Nook would be best. I am concerned about eye strain. Would the Nook be better than the NookColor?
