For the College Students

You all know that I have not monetized my blog. I am not here to make money, just to have fun. And I am not here to sell you anything or advertise for any business.

That being said, I have been playing on the Barnes and Noble website, researching a purchase that I will tell you all about when I make it. In the meantime, I found something quite interesting. It is called Nook Study. It is for college students and professors and sounds really useful.

It was interesting enough that I sent the info to my sister, the college professor. I plan to tell Samantha about it. And I am sharing it with you. It sounds like it could be very useful to college students.

But wait, there's more! LOL! B&N is giving stuff away to people that download Nook Study. From a press release:

To celebrate the launch of NOOKstudy, Barnes & Noble is providing a number of fun promotional offers for the college audience. Students who download NOOKstudy now through the fall semester will receive a free College Kick Start Kit which includes 50 Survival Tips – advice about how to win at college, including time management advice and even ramen noodle-based gourmet recipes. Also included in the College Kick Start Kit are 12 Essential Books for College – free, high-quality Barnes & Noble Classics eBooks including Canterbury Tales, The Scarlet Letter and Poems of Emily Dickinson, and others.

And there is the potential to win MONEY!

Students who download NOOKstudy through October 29, 2010 will automatically be entered in the Barnes & Noble College Giveaway Sweepstakes, offering one lucky winner a $5,000 cash prize. (Sweepstakes details are available at And students who visit and "like" the new NOOKstudy page on Facebook at, will also have the chance to win a $1,000 Barnes & Noble gift card.

I wish I were a student!

Me, too, McVal. I am thinking of trying it out and I am not, and never plan to be again, a student. LOL!
