Wish List:

The “What If” Guy by Brooke Moss

After losing her job at a swanky Seattle art gallery and finding out her father has been hospitalized, single mother Autumn Cole reluctantly returns to her tiny hometown of Fairfield, Washington to put the pieces of her life back together.

Her disgruntled twelve-year old son isn’t thrilled about going from hip to hick, but Autumn’s got it worse. She resumes her role as the daughter of the town drunk, promptly facing a crisis with her father that’s been decades in the making.

Running into Henry Tobler, and nearly breaking his nose, is almost more than she can handle, but can rediscovering love–and herself–with her “what if” guy teach Autumn to forgive before it’s too late?

Break Out by Nina Croft

The year is 3048, Earth is no longer habitable, and man has fled to the stars where they’ve discovered the secret of immortality—Meridian. Unfortunately, the radioactive mineral is exorbitantly expensive and only available to a select few. A new class comprised of the super rich and immortal soon evolves. The Collective, as they’re called, rule the universe.

Two-thousand-year-old Ricardo Sanchez, vampire and rogue pilot of the space cruiser, El Cazador, can’t resist two things: gorgeous women and impossible jobs. When beautiful Skylar Rossaria approaches him to break a prisoner out of the Collective’s maximum security prison on Trakis One, Rico jumps at the chance. Being hunted by the Collective has never been so dangerous–or so fun!

Yeah – these look good!

Color me excited!

So…the new Nook

I’ve had a Nook (1st edition) since February of 2010 and have been thrilled, thrilled, thrilled with it. During my 15-months of usage I’ve noticed things I don’t use – games, web access, music player – and had wished they would do away with. I’ve also found things in the Nook Color (which I got an played around with for a week or so before returning it) that I wish the Nook had – cool home page, recommendations, the ability to share socially and an easier way to lend.

And with this announcment I’m all like…whoa….were they in my head?

I believe that there will always be a market for devices like the Nook Color and the eInk Nook. They are two very different devices for people with different needs. While a device that meets all of our needs in one fell swoop is appealing in theory I personally have not found anything that I like in reality. I’ve got an iPod, a Nook, a computer and a cell phone. Each of these devices have specific uses for me and they do what I want in a way that has met my needs.

So I’ll keep surfing the reviews and early opinions online. When I get a chance I’ll go fondle it in a store. My biggest question would be how it handles side loaded content. I’m actually pretty happy with the way the current Nook and NookColor handle my non-B&N purchases and I can’t see that going backwards… I still might get a NookColor because I’d like to purchase magazines and while it seems like that is a functionality of the new Nook I don’t think I’d want my magazines to be in black and white.

Overall I’m pretty excited and looking forward to seeing how the new Nook works once it’s out and about in the wilds and in the hands of experienced Nook users.

Now to wait for Oberon Designs to come out with their new Nook covers.
