A Working Mama’s Secret Tool

Hello, Sunshine! It’s been a long time since I’ve sat down and read a good book, magazine or watched a movie that didn’t put me to sleep. With my busy life I’m always on the go with little time left for fun. That’s where the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK from Barnes & Nobel saves the day as this working mama’s secret tool.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK - Unboxed

I honestly didn’t know what to expect from my new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK. I was so excited when I unboxed it and found this beautiful gem waiting for me. I’m pretty sure I let out a little squeal and Lulu laughed at me.

Oh my gosh, I can read any book I want to. I will sit back and relax flipping through the pages of the latest edition of In Style and it will not be while I’m in line at the grocery store. The NOOK by Samsung is the perfect size for me to toss in my tote bag and take with me wherever I go! No more boring car line time worrying about going over my phone’s data limits scrolling through social media updates. This little beauty is the perfect entrainment gadget for this working mama.

Entertainment for Kids

Sunday we went the Tampa Bay Rays vs. Baltimore Orioles game. I wasn’t sure how long Lulu would last. Nine innings are a lot of time for a two-year-old. In the sixth inning I pulled out my Barnes & Nobel NOOK to entertain Lulu. She LOVED playing the bowling game. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK has a brilliant display that is optimized for reading and entertainment. Everything looks stunning on this tablet!

Gracie has downloaded the bookshelf app onto our new tablet. It has been wonderful listening to her read her current level of books to Lulu at night. Lulu loves pointing to the pictures on the screen while Gracie reads. It’s been a great bonding experience for the two of them.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK - Modern Romance

The last book I read was a 400 page law-book. It wasn’t exciting and I fell asleep several times when I read it. I spend three hours every Saturday mornings at Gracie’s dance school. That’s a lot of time for me to sit there with nothing to do.

I know I’m late to the game, but JD and I recently discovered Aziz Ansari. I’ve been desperate for funny in my life and we’ve watched two of his comedy specials on Netflix. His book, Modern Romance, is one of the first books I’m going to read on my NOOK by Samsung. I really like to read comedy books and I love it when a book makes me laugh out loud.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK is also a great tool for me use when I’m meeting with clients. It’s large enough for me to obtain e-signatures, discuss important details in the contracts, and edit them on the fly. The ability to download the latest home design apps and magazines helps me with guiding their imagination into the realm of possibilities for the next chapter in their lives.

Do you have a Barnes & Noble NOOK?

What would be the first book or magazine you would download?


  • Aziz Ansari is my man! You will have to let me know how you like that book because I almost bought it in Target the other day. I’m sure it will be hilarious.

    My favorite feature of the Samsung Galaxy nook is that it’s the PERFECT size! I’ve had android phones for some years now and i love the Android products, but for some reason I still purchased an iPad 2 when it came out. I suppose i wanted something different for once, but the thing is ginormous in comparison to what i need! Even though they came out with the ipad mini, i would still rather be using an android device!
