I got a NookColor for Mother's Day. One of the best gifts EVER! After Darryl bought me the original Nook 3G for Christmas a couple years ago, I didn't think I could love any e-reader even more. I do! My birthday just happens to fall the day before Mother's Day (I know - lucky me!) and my brother gave me a wonderful, beautiful and timely Barnes and Noble gift card. It was all so perfect!
The first book I read on my NookColor was Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith based on a recommendation from a co-worker. What a wonderful story. It was so much fun to read a story where fiction is woven so seamlessly into fact that I almost forgot that it was a work of fiction. Or was it?
I highly recommend this book, especially for those who love history with a twist. Due to the graphic theme of the story and a few mature references, I wouldn't recommend it for anyone under the age of 13.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Shot in Canon 5D in New York by artist Sasha Huber, this story is about Jany Tomba, a naturally pretty Haitian girl that moved to NY as a child with her family. It explains how she became one of the first black girls to be featured on magazine covers in the US, simply by chance.
