I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

The Battlestar Pegasus Nook

So what do you know, Crafty Andy got a Nook from Barnes & Noble.  For an E-Book reader is fantastic for the price.  One of the benefits is that you can borrow books from the Library and read them on your Nook. I just got the Wi-Fi, I did not see a need to get a 3G version at this time.   Another benefit is that you can read PDF patterns on it, it needs a bit of work, but it is a very nice device. You can name the device, I named mine Triton, what you see is the wallpaper I selected and the screensaver is all in Galactica Theme pictures, very awesome.  I will say that it is a very nice device, easy to use and easy to connect to your home Wi-Fi or anywhere there is a Wi-Fi.  Go to your coffee shop or your favorite Wi-Fi Spot and hook it up to get new books, otherwise you can have in Airplane mode.   The Airplane mode cuts the wireless off and saves you battery life.  I bought a dark Silicon skin from Skque, is not skin tight, but let me tell you is way cool, I like the way it fits and the way it looks and a great price.  Dark will give you a better contrast with the reading , that's a tip.  At night I use my regular night light and I do spend more time reading than I expected to .  I will be working in making my Patterns to work with the Nook.  Will there be a Kindle in my future?  I don't know yet,  I am testing one tomorrow, but for reading this is a wonderful device that I am hoping to treasure for a long time.  Thanks for stopping by.
