Today brings exciting news for owners (or prospective owners) of NOOK COLOR devices.

Today Barnes and Noble announced a software upgrade to their NOOK COLOR.

It is only a 1.2 update and not a 2.0 as some have hoped.

That means that the update comes with some asked-for improvements but likely nothing too amazing. In fact, I read a lot of whining about it today online as I perused the ereader news for the day.

All of that aside, an online acquaintance of mine contacted me today to say how very
excited she is with regard to the update! I could hear her squeals of delight through her
Facebook post! I am excited for her and other NOOK COLOR owners.
(Maybe she'll pop in to tell us what she likes!)

Ereader devices are great. They are becoming more multi-functional all the time.
The prices are great. The competition is strong too. Rumor has it that Amazon is coming out with a device they are going to call a tablet but which will be integrated into their already strong Kindle system. That will surely please Kindle users and prospective buyers.

Are you doing any "Royal" reading?

I've seen interest in Prince William's upcoming marriage to Kate Middleton  has inspired some readers to delve into books relating to the monarchy. Since we lived in England for a couple years I've already done my share of that.

My suggestion is for some light and fun reading; a quick but delightful book:

An Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett

The Uncommon Reader: A Novella Kindle Edition
 The Uncommon Reader: A Novella Paperback Edition

An Uncommon Reader NOOKBOOK < click here

I've done a review of it previously.

If you might read it, just skip the review and read it. 

It is only 120 pages long. 

The main topic is the love if reading and the story comes with a neat little pleasing twist right at the end of the book.
