    Hello everyone,

    just wanted to let all the ebook readers out there know that I've decided to re-release my book in digital format for free. The book is titled "Lost in a Video Game World - my life in a cartridge" and it was self-published last year on paperback.

    After selling all of the printed copies and not having done anything since, working on a documentary film instead, I've decided to just share the book as an ebook for free for anyone interested.

    The book can be considered a poetry book, but it's actually a poetry/non-fiction essay combination. It received really great reviews from the readers and a couple of magazines and I thought it would be cool to share the project with new readers.

    if you are interested, please email me at jleon1980@yahoo.com and I will email you a pdf copy, which you can then convert to any format you want. I'm doing minor changes to the book, but I should have it finished by next week. If someone can tell me what the format is for the Nook, I can try to convert it myself and save you the trouble.

    Thanks
    J.R. Leon

    I will work on the minor changes over the next couple of days and will email you the final product shortly.

    What format is used on the Nook?

    Thanks for sharing. A good format for the NOOK and NOOKcolor is epub.

    Ok I found "calibre" and I plan on converting the format to epub myself. Thanks Rico. I have a Kyros which also uses ePub, so I'll make sure it all looks proper before sending the files.

    I had one other question, when it comes to color graphics, does the Nook(not-color)automatically displays them as black/white?

    Also if you are interested, forget about emailing me, just post on this thread and I'll make sure to get you a copy. It's a lot easier that way :)

    I would like a copy if you please and the NOOK can also read epubs even if formatted in color.
