That’s right! All three Garison Fitch books are now available on Barnes & Noble’s “Nook” platform. Just $3.95 apiece. Like with the Kindle, you can also get an ap that allows you to read Nook books on other platforms (like your phone or a PC). With a Nook, you can also “loan” books to friends for a short time. No, I don’t know how that works.
But I did have the joy last week of going into a B&N and bringing up “First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch” on the Nook display model there. Not only was the tech experience as good as they’ve advertised, it was really cool to see my work in that format. I just stood there and read the whole prologue. Probably would have read the first chapter, too, if my wife hadn’t been ready to leave.
Now, here’s a question to ponder: is it more gratifying to see my work in print on paper or on screen? My first thought is that it’s equal, but my books are sure selling better on Kindle and Nook, so I’m going to have to go with screen. My greatest desire for writing is to be read, so this new electronic book revolution is propelling that in a way paperbacks never have. (Not that I mind anyone buying my books in paperback–available from Amazon–but I sure don’t blame anyone for going for the less expensive “e” option.)
My other novels will soon be available on Nook, as well.
