  1. I wrote a comment and then pish it disappeared. I think books should stay books too. I love reading on my Nook Color. There are so many free books that I don't buy books anymore

    1. I have a nook color and still have the app when I got an iPad. I think I like imagining what characters are like and sometimes Hollywood gets it wrong.

  2. OMG @cliffanger books!! YES! I'm so glad I didn't read the Dark Tower books as they were released. My mom got the whole set for me (since I took care of her when she got her knees replaced and I get bored when people are sedated...) Anyway, the third book was this huge epic cliffhanger and when it was released it was something like seven YEARS before the fourth?! *dies* I don't think I would have made it. LOL

    1. I would have died waiting that long. When I look for book series now, I make sure that all of the series are out before reading them.

  3. Oh, such good answers--especially the bad books to movies!
