When given the choice, I’d much rather pickup a hardcover or a paperback instead of my eReader. But that doesn’t mean I don’t surf through the Nook Bookstore on occasion when there are deals to be had. My newly-bought books just may not be read for weeks… months… okay, sometimes years.
It’s been such a long time since I looked at what’s on my Nook that I decided to remind myself what’s on there. If memory serves me, most of them were on sale at the time of purchase. I just can’t pass up a good deal when it involves books.
. Here’s a look at what’s unread on my Nook:
Zeroes by Chuck Wendig
I bought Zeroes after reading The Harvest Triology but before picking up Blackbirds. It’s a hacker novel that sounded interesting and happened to be on sale last summer. There’s another book set in the universe scheduled to come out later this year.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Back when the Outlander TV show first premiered, the eBook it was based upon went on sale for $0.99. I opened the file once, saw the page count was over 700 pages, and promptly closed it. It’ll get read… eventually.
A Study in Scarlet & The Sign of Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
I originally purchased this two-pack thinking it was just A Study in Scarlet. I haven’t read either story in at least ten years, and I’d like to get back into the original Sherlock Holmes stories.
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
Reviewing YA books for the Gary Forbes Foundation allowed me to read a couple of Maureen Johnson’s books. 13 Little Blue Envelopes has always been one that I meant to check out.
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
I’m cheating a bit here. I’ve read Alice in Zombieland before, and it was one of my favorite zombie books a few years ago. So I want to reread it and see if it lives up to how I remember it.
Delilah S. Dawson contributed to this short story collection and has written about it a number of times on her blog. It sounds interesting: a collection of fictional stories showing different points of view of a school shooting.
Haunting Zoe by Sherry D. Ficklin
I love Sherry D. Ficklin’s Katherine the Great series, and so I snatched up this book when I saw it was free in the Nook Bookstore. The description makes me think it’s a supernatural romance.
Somebody Tell Aunt Tille She’s Dead by Christiana Miller
The title sold me on this book. That and the fact that it was free. It’s another supernatural story with ghosts and demons(?) and things going bad pretty fast. I’m honestly just intrigued by the title.
Do you have an eReader? Do you have any eBooks that you’ve bought but not read yet?
