you'll need to download books that you buy or get for free onto a desktop or laptop and then link your nook to your computer to transfer the book over to your nook. the books will show up in your my documents section.

    Bad page layout

    Page layout is triple spaced and you can't change it. It also has the left margin in the middle of the page where it writes over it self and you can't read it. You can't adjust it to fix it. The book is totally unreadable in this foremat. You ought to get your money back or a credit on another book.

    would have given it 4 stars if it were longer

    its nice to be able to get these shorter things on the Nook since it can be difficult to get them if they're published on paper with another book. However, though it was interesting to get more of Taura's story this felt more as if it would be suited to a subplot within a fatter novel rather than a stand alone story. Fine for Vor fans but not an intro or hook to someone not familiar with the milieu.

    a nice read

    This did not have the action and dramatic tension of the other Vorkosigan stories. However, it was a nice read.

    I missed this when published

    "Winterfair Gifts" was added to "Komarr" and "A Civil Campaign" when the compilation "Miles in Love" was published. Since I'd read both the full length novels, I missed this little gem of a wedding story, as Sgt Taura & other galactics come for Miles & Ekaterin's wedding. Elli Quinn isn't there in person, but her presents & presence are central to the story.

    Fans of the Vorkosigan Saga will greatly enjoy this novella.

    Great Story

    This is a great story for either a long time fan of Ms. Bujold's Vor books or anyone new to the books. As always Ms. Bujold's story telling is crisp, funny, and gripping. If you have not read this books before I can highly recommend them. If you have never or seldom read science fiction this will be a delightful introduction for you.
