Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK GIVEAWAY to a VTIM Reader

Thanks to Barnes & Noble and Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK for sponsoring today's discussion

I'll admit it... I read 50 Shades of Grey. Well, let me step back for a minute.

I purchased a physical copy of the book a few years ago at a second hand book store (yeah yeah yeah, I know, 1984 called and want their way of reading back) and brought the book on a plane with me. I was headed to see my mom in VA Beach. As I was middle-seat sandwiched between a well-dressed older business man, and a younger, probably mid-twenties jock dressed head to toe in an Adidas swishy jump suit... I pulled out my very well worn second hand copy of 50 Shades of Grey and flipped to page one. 

I then felt a tap on my shoulder from the business man who said, "My wife read that. She told me allllll about it. Quite the steamy page turner, huh? Don't breathe too loud on us poor guys over here, I see you've read this one a few times before." 

He thought he was being hilarious, and was clearly light-heartedly joking with me. Meanwhile, in Sarah land, I then died. Dead. Death. To continue the basic girl series of words... I literally couldn't even. 

I awkwardly chuckled as my hand darted, faster than you can say secure your breathing mask, to my copy of the Sky Mall. I never took the book out of my backpack again. Heck, I think it is still in that pink Jansport shoved in the back of my closet. 

Ok but, I still wanted to read the book.... in the privacy of my own home....where I don't have to stress over the volume at which I read....

Enter the new Samsung Galaxy Tab® 4 NOOK® which allowed me to read everything from 50 Shades of Grey, to Cosmo Magazine on its 7 inch brilliant HD display... without Snoopy McSnooperson business man having any idea what novel or publication I'm holding in the palm of my hands!

Last night, I started The Fault In Our Stars!




The new NOOK by Samsung comes in both white and black color options. With customizable NOOK Profiles, every member of the family (even Gee and Veenie if they ever learn to read) can create their own immersive reading experience. My favorite part of the tablet is just that, it is a fully-functioning tablet including front and rear cameras, web surfing and GPS. 

With Samsung’s Multi Window innovation, you can even use more than one app simultaneously. Plus all NOOK content is safely stored in the NOOK Cloud, so books, magazines and newspapers can be accessed across all NOOK devices, as well as on PCs and mobile devices using the Free NOOK Reading Apps for Android, iOS and Windows 8.1. Barnes & Noble also syncs every last page read across all NOOK devices and apps, so readers can seamlessly pick up right where they left off on all connected devices.

You can visit your local Barnes & Noble to experience the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK firsthand, receive complimentary, personal NOOK support, take advantage of a full calendar of popular NOOK events, including NOOK Night workshops, family Storytimes, book discussion groups and author signings.





The new NOOK by Samsung is just $169.99 after a $30 instant rebate and comes with more than $200 in free reading and entertainment content.

  4. My favorite feature is that is does more than just stream online books.. I have a Kindle and I always forget to take it with me because it doesn't do anything besides hold online books.

    Also, I liked it on Bloglovin le duh.

  5. Awesome giveaway! I liked on BL.

    So many great features! I like that it allows for personal profiles and parental control so I can share with my daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like that you can expand the memory because with some readers you can't and deleting books isn't fun! (I also liked this page on BlogLovin!)

    ReplyDelete
  7. This is such an awesome giveaway!! Liked the post on Bloglovin' And I think my favorite feature might be that you can have different profiles because this means this would be something that I could share with my husband and we wouldn't necessarily need two tablets. Sure sharing might be a problem if we both want to use it at the same time, but I definitely like that the option is there.

    Also, how are you liking "The Fault in Our Stars"? I just did a book review on it on my blog... so curious how you are finding it...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Seems like everyone else I love that front/back cameras, size of it (dirty), and the expandable memory. Liked on bloglovin.

    Aside though from the whole giveaway thing, I do have to say rather impressive that Veenie left the entire tray of yummie things alone plus sat still enough for all the pics. I can only imagine the outtakes from this. I think I will take this post and show my little jack how a good boy behaves. :)

    ReplyDelete

  15. I LOVE that you can serf the web too. It's more than just an ereader. I have a question though. I have a (relatively old) kindle. If I were to get the new nook, I can't transfer my kindle books over, can I? Probably not. (Sad face)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love the camera feature, my old Nook doesn't have that so this would be great to take pictures with. Liked the post on BlogLovin ;)!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the personal profiles!! That way my husband and I can share without him teasing me about the romances I love! I also liked the post on BlogLovin!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the book lending feature - that's how my friends and I get new books, from each other! (I also liked this on Bloglovin) :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think it's pretty cool you can multitask with multi window! That's got to be my favorite! Ps- I liked this on Bloglovin ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. The NOOK Profiles would be great for me and my husband so that we could share the NOOK but still have it be our own. I liked the post on Bloglovin!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The multi-window feature is clutch! I am SO hoping I win this because it would make such a great gift for Dane's 30th/Christmas! Crossing my fingers :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just like the idea of being able to do everything in one place and have it not be my phone. I feel like I do everything on my tiny little screen and it just makes me look rude! I like the option of reading on a digital item without being seen as the girl always on the phone. (liked the entry!)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have a little Nook right now but I really like how you can surf the web on this one. I always hate it when I'm reading and I hear a ding on my phone/computer that I got an email so I then have to pick up another device to see the email. I liked the post of bloglovin!

    Plus - Veenie looks super cute in the second picture!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Post liked! :) I think the personal profiles would be a great feature to have - my husband could do his required reading for class and I could read something fun on mine and not get them mixed up :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like that you can set up profiles for each user. This way my kids don't have to see my books and I don't have to see theirs :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I liked the post on Bloglovin :) Also, my favorite attribute is that it's got parental controls. I think this is important when you've got a teen or a tween. I need to be able to keep an eye on what he's doing these days!

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOVED this post! And I am also a huge fan of my nook :) I almost dying laughing from your experience on the plane with 50 shades!! I bought the book at a book store right across my terminal whenever Oprah released it as a "must read" and when I was on the plane, an older man sitting next to me said "My wife loves that book." And smiled at me (so creepy.) Without missing a beat I replied to him "And you loved the increased amount sex from her?" HAHAHAHA He blushed so hard and never spoke to me again on the 4hr flight ;)

  38. I love Galaxy products! My tablet and phone are both Galaxies. Also, you started tfios? Lemme know how that goes. We can talk about our feels. lol. But seriously.

    ReplyDelete

    Also, I liked this post on Bloglovin. :-)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love that you can browse the web from the Nook! I have the first version of the Kindle and it seems almost prehistoric now. I liked this post on Bloglovin!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hahaha I was reading the 2nd book in the series in line somewhere and this housewife came up to me (with her kids in tow) and whispers about how much she loved the whole series. I definitely could have used one of these! I love that you get sample books for free because I'm always looking for new reading material. Also I liked this post on Bloglovin!

  56. I love the front and back cameras, the fact I can sync it to my other Samsung devices, and multiple accounts! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  57. OK, so clearly the front and rear facing cameras are a plus.....#selfie. But I'm sure the built in GPS is probably the best. I have an old kindle and I keep it in my purse but it doesn't help me when I'm trying to get somewhere. I always have my phone, but we all know how "responsible" I am....so it's never fully charged. This would be an awesome upgrade to my kindle. OOO and I like the syncing, too! It's so complicated to have so many devices. OH! and I liked the post on bloglovin!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love the idea of being able to read a book or two or three without having to carry around all those heavy books! #PoorCollegeStudentProbs

    ReplyDelete
  59. I need to finish Fault in our Stars! I wanna see the movie too.

    I like the feature of having family profiles and also watching TV/movies {Liked on Bloglovin'}

    ReplyDelete
  60. That movie was good. I haven't read the book though. Multiple books all in one is a plus! The customization of it all-from personal profiles, to fonts, etc is my favorite part. :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love love love that you can surf the web! I could not live with just an Ereader!
    I really wanted to see the movie for fault in our stars and I am considering reading the book. maybe if I win I will! :)
    Thanks so much for this!
