    I finished "Swamplandia!" Not too thrilled with it...it was a finalist for the Pulitzer this year I think? Then no fiction entry actually won.

    Now, I'm thinking of re-reading "The Mists of Avalon."

    I got a Nook Tablet for my birthday. It's so cool.

    I'm reading David McCollough's "The Great Bridge" about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. That man can make any subject interesting.

    Original Nook and this one. I have an ipad1, but can't read on it. Hurts my eyes too much. The Nook Tablet screen is much nicer.

    We got the tablet so that my wife & I don't have to share anymore, plus we can read the same thing now if we want.

    Is it the Nook Color? If so you can dual boot it with Android.

    Many tablets and phones run Android-- it's an operating system. You would be able to download apps and add functionality. By dual booting, on start-up would have a choice of booting into Android or into the original Nook set-up.

    OK but what would running Android offer that the BN OS doesn't? I can already browse the web, FB/Twitter apps, Netflix, plus my Gmail and Google calender is synced to it.

    If that's all you need, nothing.

    Basically it opens up the ability to utilize the literally hundreds of thousands of apps available to Android. It turns your ereader into a full-featured tablet.

    There are tutorials to walk you through the dual-boot process, or you can just buy a $35 microSD card with Android already on it.

    Is this like rooting a Android cell phone. I have a 32gb microSD card in the Nook already. How would I get Android on to it? PM me?

    There are two options-- one is rooting, which will completely replace the Nook software. The other is dual-booting, where you load Android onto the card, and choose to boot it or the original Nook software.

    Rooted or off a card?

    Because I've read that you should use a certain class SD card (4 I think) otherwise it is slow.

    I haven't had that problem with my step-daughter's Nook Color.

    Hers I rooted, though.

    A friend recommended Murakami. Just finished Norwegian Wood, which I liked, and started The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.

    Any relation to Benicio? KIDDING!

    I'm most of the way through "A Discovery of Witches" by Deborah Harkness. I want to like it a lot, and the story is great. But it's getting too long/draggy and apparently it's the first in a planned trilogy? Don't know if I will want to continue unless there is a great cliffhanger at the end.

    And I wanted to read "The Mists of Avalon" again but could not find my copy. So I go to order it on Amazon, thinking I was requesting the same trade paperback format I already thought I had--nice and big--for $24.99. No, idiot me somehow ordered a British mass-market printing. Ugh. Too small/for too much money! But also too much of a hassle to return.

    I tried to like this book....stopped reading it half way through.
