A Lilly-ified Nook...Now What To Read?

Monday, September 27, 2010

I bought a nook this weekend!  After reading all the helpful comments on Friday's post I was completely torn between a kindle and a nook, so I went with instant gratification and my love for Lilly Pulitzer and headed to Barnes and Noble to purchase a nook.  I love it!  I've gotten through the book I was reading on my iphone (I immediately added it to the nook), and now I need to find some good books to read!  Any suggestions?  What are y'all reading now?

I really wish I knew of a book club here, but since I don't I'm trying to come up with other options.  Does anyone use goodreads or shelfari? 

I had a hard time choosing between all the cute cover options, but how could I pass up pink and green Lilly Pulitzer!  I went with the one from Barnes and Noble, but I also came across an etsy store, hob-op, with tons of adorable covers for Nook and Kindle.  You can select from one of the available options or even pick your own fabric (maybe a Lilly Pulitzer print...)  Here are a couple covers available in her store.

Besides all the time I spent reading on my new nook - I had a very busy weekend!  On Saturday morning I woke up early and headed to the DMV to (finally) change my car registration to Virginia.  I was a little sad to see my Florida tag go, but my new Virginia plates are FSU themed!

Nicholas is finishing up his surgery rotation in Salem (about two hours from us) and I am not loving it!  I really shouldn't complain too much because we have actually gotten quite lucky with him not having many away rotations this year.  This is his first one though and I hate not seeing him.  He was on call for some of the weekend, but he was able to drive home for the day on Saturday.  Luckily, I have the furbabies to keep me company while he's gone!


  1. Congratulations on the Nook! I love the book coveres you picked. What kinds of books do you like to read? I'm not on Shelfari, but I read a lot. There are lots of good literary book sites out there(if you want a few links, just let me know!), and I tend to supplement with mysteries and romance, so I'm a fan of likesbooks.com for recommendation in that direction.

  2. Oh how fun! I've been debating between a Kindle, Nook, or iPad. The Lilly cover is just perfection! Enjoy love XO

  3. What a darling nook cover! How fun!

    I don't know what types of books you like to read, but I just finished the Hunger Games series (the last book kinda disappointed me, but the first 2 were good) and before that I finished the Fablehaven series which is awesome if you like easy to read/good character development. Each book in the series gets better and better!

  4. Must Read if have not yet:
    The Help
    Water for Elephants
    Sarah's Key
    Snow Flower and the Secret Fan
    American Wife
    Spoken from the Heart

  5. What cute cover options!

    Emily Elizabeth pretty much has my recommended reading list down, so I'm with her. I'd also add Three Cups of Tea, which I'm just finishing up - it's about a philanthropist who worked to build schools that would educate girls in Pakistan. Very powerful.


  6. I love your Lilly cover! Don't you love your Nook? I can't get enough of my new Kindle. I keep downloading books for it and I need to get caught up on my reading before I get any more.

    I recently read The Hunger Games trilogy and I just ordered Mini Shopaholic.

  7. Love your pics, especially the jackets and the Nook covers! I'm so glad to be friends on Goodreads! :)

  8. I loved both these posts about ereaders because I'm on the fence about whether I should opt for a Kindle or Nook. Every professional review I've read says go for the Kindle because of the storage space but I'm reallllyy leaning towards the Nook for that gold Lily cover haha! I was wondering if you could do a review now that you've had it for a bit?
