What to Read...
Zipped through Jo Nesbo's Headhunters this weekend.  I think I finally found the Scandinavian author to succeed Stieg Larsson...

Loved the new Chris Bohjalian - all of his usual grown-up hippie characters with a little supernatural kick...

Anything you need...

Because I know that quite a few of our customers will be buying or receiving eReaders for Christmas, and because the reader that most of our customers seem to think is the best product out there is the Color Nook (and, as you know, Kindle products can ONLY read ebooks purchased from Amazon, so we're sincerely hoping you won't be considering one of those ), I bought the store a Color Nook so that we could better help you with setup and downloads.
HERE'S THE AWESOME PART:  I found a product that will turn your regular old Color Nook into an Android tablet!  There's a HUGE difference in what all you can do with a tablet...access all kinds of apps, watch movies, word process, etc., etc.  I spent some time looking at both the Nook and Kindle tablets that have just been released, and neither come close, in my opinion, to the functionality of the iPad or the Samsung tablet.  They are basically glorified eReaders, and the Kindle Fire comes with all of the negative baggage you've been reading about everywhere...SO...why not spend just $36.99 (I'll actually sell it to you cheaper than you can buy it from the manufacturer!) and turn your Color Nook into a REAL tablet?  The card fits into the device, but if you take it out, your Nook reverts to a plain old Color Nook (but why would you do that??).  The card does NOT void your Nook warranty, but opens the Nook up to any Android-based app in the Android Marketplace. 
I discovered all this because I wanted to download the great new IndieBound Reader app to the Color Nook I bought the store.  I discovered that B&N and Nook aren't 'authorized' to access apps that aren't owned/supported by Barnes&Noble (starting to sound depressingly familiar?).  But as soon as you just pop this card in, your Nook becomes a true tablet that can support any app I found and tried!
If this all sounds like gobbledy-gook, either just disregard, or imagine picking up an Android tablet for $250 cheaper than the cheapest of the iPads!
I'll even load the IndieBound app on your card for you, so you can start downloading and reading from right away, if that's what you want to do on your tablet.  (Nothing's changed, never fear - I'm still the biggest fan of reading good old paper books!!!)
If you've been downloading from us onto your Color Nook already and wish the process were simpler, this is the solution.  Buy, click,!
I can hardly tell you how cool this is, and what a money saver.  Our staff is hooked!  These little cards are going as fast as I can get 'em, so let me know asap if you want one!
Downtown Holiday Stroll is this Saturday!

More Michael Moore...

We had a great time at the State Theater in Traverse City on the 28th.  Mike was in his element and there were lots of laughs for the sold out crowd (and the lucky few from the stand-by line who made it in).  
Saturn Booksellers, along with McLean&Eakin Booksellers in Petoskey and Brilliant Books in TC presented the State Theater with a check for $15,000 for their renovation campaign - representing $5 for every copy of Mike's new book, Here Comes Trouble, that we had sold.

I told you before that Michael had said he would try to be here for an event at Saturn, and then that he told me that his schedule wasn't going to permit any other northern MI events besides the one on Monday.  NOW he says maybe it will happen in Gaylord after stay tuned.  If I learn anything, it will be posted on our website right away!  If it does, it will most likely be at the very end of the year, when all of the college kids are back - yea!

...and finally, randomly, a picture of Mike presenting me with the Oscar (or me wrestling his Oscar away from him...).  It's HEAVY!
