Surrender, Dorothy: Reviews Disclosure

  • This is a review blog, not a personal blog. Marketers send me products for free, and I agree to review them. Sometimes they offer me a small fee for my time. This fee covers my time, but it doesn't buy a positive review. My time is valuable, and there are many other income-producing ways I could spend it. I choose to do reviews because I believe they have value in our culture. I don't review food anymore. I rarely review music. I don't review games unless they are educational. I mostly focus on books (picture and adult), clothing (baby through adult), services, tools, and home improvement items. I don't print the press release. Please do not send me a press release. If I review your product, it might not be favorable. I don't return review products because I don't have an assistant to drive them to the post office and stand in that crazy line. I'm not a big corporation; I'm just a normal person with a limited amount of time. Please, readers, do not be confused: I did not buy anything you are reading about here. I didn't just stumble into Wal-Mart and say, "OMG, I MUST HAVE IT." Somebody sent it to me and asked me to write about it. So I did. I can be reached at

hey that sounds like a lot of fun. I would love to try one out, since I have a 6 year old daughter who loves to play with our toys too. :)

Oh my heavens, this would be amazing! I love my books with all my heart, so this would be a dream come true.


i would love one too. i have an almost 8yo reading chapter books, and a 4yo reading picture books to himself. of course, who are we kidding - i'd probably keep it for myself...

I would love to have one of these !!


I am not ready to BUY one of these yet - but I would not say no to a free one! My daughter is about a year behind yours (maybe a little less) and would love this.

Tricia A

Give away? I'm in! would love! :)

I so want a Nook! I have compared the Nook and Kindle and I think I would prefer a Nook. I hadn't allowed myself to even consider the color version, but now I shall dare to dream! :)

I had not even thought about letting my kids use my ereader once I get it. My son is an avid chapter book reader and my daughter loves her picture books, especially Fancy Nancy. If I ever get one I may have to hide it from them...


I thought I wanted a Kindle, now I'm not sure sure, going to have to check out the nook again!


Oh lordy, it can read TO my child? You mean I don't have to suffer through ANOTHER rendition of Go, Dog, Go? Hallelujah!

Sounds like it would be fun for reading to my granddaughter!


I got a kindle in October and love it. Would love the chance to see the difference with the Nook. Thanks for giving me a chance to win!


I've downloaded a couple children's books onto my kindle for emergencies (stuck in the car with the kids and they are bored). They usually take books with them in the car, but they'd probably read LONGER if they had the "thrill" of holding an ereader while doing it! *lol*


I would love to win one of these.... what a great system! Thanks, Rita!


My daughter would love one of these! Especially with the audio. Since she has her delays she is an interested but slow reader and she just loves reading and playing with my itouch so I know she would LOVE this.


And of course I would love one too. I do read via my itouch but it is veryyyyy smalllll.


...and is it shameless to put up more comments? I'm ashamed of myself but I can so see my babe with this gadget!


You're comparing the nook color to the iPad, so I'm wondering about the touch screen capability... on the regular nook, the little touch screen at the bottom isn't as smart (or sensitive or... something) as the iPad. It takes more time to react or maybe it takes a more solid touch? I don't know but it's just not as smooth ... I'm not sure how much you've used the iPad but am wondering what my frustration level might be when moving between iPad and nook color...


I'm always a late adopter of technology so I was frustrae


Frustrated when the nook color came out soon after I'd bought my nook
