Barnes & Noble's 7-inch Nook HD+ is made for crystal-clear reading. It is truly HD and you can tell Barnes & Noble put a lot of thought in presentation of materials. There isn't a camera, though, so if you like to Instagram with whatever is in your hands, this won't work for that. The Nook's ability to have multiple profiles is a huge win here, especially if you only want to get one for everyone to share. Fair warning, you need to know where to look to set up a new profile, but once you find it making profiles is easy. Click your image at the top to find the add profile button! If you've stored your books on an SD card, this eReader/tablet has a card slot for easy accessibility. There are also apps availble, such as Netflix, Flickster, Goodreads, Overdrive, and 3M. The Nook HD+ has an excellent shop for reading material, even including catalogs! It is a bit slow to load, but is comprehensive and once you're set up with a credit card, easy to buy from.

As the tablet tidal wave continues its deluge over the reading landscape, I am grateful for the existence of ereaders. Books are my first love, but e-ink has been easy on the eyes too, and dedicated ereading devices have done well to avoid the many distractions of email, internet, games, apps, etc.

Richland Library customers with Macs received a gift this season in the form of the 3M Cloud Library Mac App. Now Mac-users can use the app to browse Richland Library’s 3M Cloud Library eBook collection, download eBooks to their computers, and either read them on their screen or transfer eBooks to eReaders like the Nook and Sony Reader with the click of a mouse button. As a Mac-using, Nook-reading eBook-lover, I'd been looking forward to this for some time!
