You know it’s the 21st Century when…

… Your parents wish you happy birthday on facebook.

… Your cookbook is foodgawker.

… Your books need to be charged.

May I introduce to you, the nookColor.

My darling husband bought this amazing little invention for me a couple of weeks ago.

Ever since, I’ve had my head stuck in a book screen all of the time. It is especially handy while walking/running on the treadmill. No more clips holding the pages down (which ended up in the pattern: remove clips. turn the page. add the clips back. repeat). Now it just requires the touch of the screen to turn the page. Love it!

It also happens to fit just perfectly in my new Gussy Sews bag from LoveFeast Table.

The first book I read on my nookColor was:

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, a recommendation from Jenna at EatLiveRun.

Then, I quickly read the last installment of Nora Roberts’ Bridal Quartet, Happy Ever After. It was so good I couldn’t put it down. I’m a sucker for romance, though. 😀

I’m currently reading Will Write for Food.

And I can’t wait to read One Thousand Gifts, a recommendation from Aarti at Aartipaarti.

and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, another recommendation from Jenna.

Do you have any book recommendations for me and other Chocolate & Carrots readers?

My opinions about this product are my own and I received no monetary compensation to review these products.


  1. I have the book Will Write for Food, but haven’t even read it yet! My absolute favorite book growing up was Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, but it’s definitely more in the teen genre…but still SO good. It’s very intense.

    1. I’ll have to check it out! I’m all for the teen genre. I love the stories…I read the twilight series twice and harry potter once. So good!

  2. I have a Nook Color too and I love it! I started out by reading a couple Emily Giffin books (Something Borrowed and Something Blue) and then the Hunger Games Series. I have several of the books above in my library just waiting to be read!

    Keep an eye out on the Shop on Fridays because they offer a free book every Friday. Barnes and Noble also has a blog called the Unbound Book Blog that features e-books on a regular basis, including the Friday Freebie.

  3. I would wholeheartedly suggest “Water for Elephants.” I devoured the book a few years ago and the movie is coming out this spring!

    As for me, I just can’t imagine ever replacing actual books. Who knows, though.

  4. I’m currently reading “Little Bee” by Chris Cleave. It is a very interesting read. I also recently read “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett. I absolutely LOVED that book!

    Like Mimi, I must say that, I am having a hard time coming to grips with the new world of e-books. I just love how I feel when I curl up with a good book. Weird, I know….
