Join Our Book Club and Win a Nook Color!

August 1, 2011 at 8:00 am , by

To celebrate the start of our book club, we’re giving away a Nook Color. It’s kind of like a Kindle, except you can also read magazines on it (like, ahem, ours), play games and connect to the Internet. I absolutely love mine, so I can’t wait to give one away! We’ll also put Bitter in the Mouth on it, our first book club pick, so you can dive right in as soon as you get it. Just leave a comment on this post, and you’re entered!
