    i'll see what links for free books for the Nook..here is one so far
    Free NOOK Books - Barnes####&####Noble

    here's another.. Free Nook books - 10 sites where you can find and download them

    i also use goodreads.. good selection of titles you can search for
    i sideloaded nook app onto my kindle so i can use both... umm there are lots of free books.. there's an app called Comixology that you can read comics.. i think there's another called ComiCat .too..

    kite runner .. i'm still tryin to get into both movie and book.. ive found that shows that are slow or seem overly political lose my interest..

    nah far from it.. the book looks at the Biafra revolution, from the account of a few personalities. The question I had about the plot is because at the end of the book, I wasnt sure whether the book was about the war - trying to highlight an unknown attempted genocide, or another book about the initmate lives about people. She develops the characters richly, which I appreciated, my girl also read the book after I recommended it to her. It is a good conversation piece, you can hold a discussion from the soap opera level to a historical one, to a philosphical one.

    oh Lioness.. here's a great way to get free magazines..

    join your local library and see if they have a Zinio affiliation.. get the zinio app on your kindle or ipad, then download the magazines and books through your library for free.. the zinio app allows you to download and KEEP the latest editions of a bunch of magazines... and.. for books I believe you can get the kindle free books and those other links that I gave you..

    To get free books on the kindle.. download the "free kindle books and tips" app and search through daily to see what books they have for discount prices and free... you can get a lot of good books like this...
