Good Time to Buy an Ereader/Tablet?

posted in: ebooks, publishing | 0

In case you haven’t seen the ads, Barnes and Noble is running a Father’s Day sale on their Nook HD (for high-definition screen) and the larger Nook HD+, marking both down significantly. The best discount is on the HD+, which is almost half off (from $269 down to $149). I’m going to get one myself, even though I already have a tablet, because it will be useful to have as a test platform for ebook formatting.

If you haven’t taken the plunge yet, this might be a good time.

    In addition to the price, there's another perk. The Nook HD and HD+ can now access Google Play. That means you can download the Kindle app and read Kindle books AND Nook books on the device. I've been doing that for quite a while on a Toshiba tablet, but until a month or so you couldn't do it on either the Nook or the Kindle.
