reading devices and reading

The third volume of Don't Read in the Closet is available, so I downloaded that.  I had the original version, but now there are three volumes.  I'll have to see if the stories overlap.

Kobo had their ads up -- they're selling the Kobo Touch with ads for $99.  I guess they've got to stay competitive.  Some of the folks who have the Kindle with ads say they really like it, or at the least that it doesn't bother them.  I'd rather pay more and not have ads, but that's me.  I got my Kobo Touch in the Borders liquidation sale for $100, so I'm out of luck if it breaks, but it was a good sale.  They're also now selling refurbished Kobo Wireless e-readers for $60.  That's not bad either.

Dear Author had Black Friday e-reader sales in their weekly deals listings:

I was more interested in the tablets and laptops on sale at Best Buy, but I'm home on the desktop computer.  I was not one of those people who went to wait in line until the stores opened at midnight.  I was toying with the idea of going to Best Buy in the afternoon on Friday, but I imagine it would still be very busy and probably the deeply discounted items would be long gone twelve hours later.  I'll probably just keep to my original plan of going to Longwood Gardens if it's nice, and maybe stopping by to help at the secondhand bookstore for their Black Friday dollar a book for most books sale.  I'm sure I could help out with getting out books to restock the shelves.
