I read in another forum on this board regarding E-readers and putting their cartridge booklets on it. Anyone else do this ? I'm looking for a good deal on one. I usually have the booklet opened in the background on the Cricut site while working in DS.

I have downloaded all the booklets for the cartridges I own onto my iPhone in an app called GoodReader. I love it because then they are always with me. I can also zoom in on all the images too. I don't take my books with me ever.BigGrin

Cool. I don't have a fancy cell phone, just a basic old Nokia. LOL. I know that Borders has the E-reader for $99, but that's more then I can spend at this time.

Ditto previous poster. I got the GoodReads app on my Iphone and have all my handbooks on there. I like it! You would need to get the Nook Color in order to really benefit from having the booklets on your e-reader. The regular nook and the kindle are black and white only which would stink when viewing the handbooks.

REALLY?? I never thought of this. I have a Nook Color, I will have to try it. IF I can figure out how to do it.

To answer the question above, you can only get on certain sights with the wifi. Facebook for one.

I have heard of these e-readers... can someone explain them to me? Do you need a monthly subscription like cable or internet service? Where do you get the books to download from? How about the downloads on the cricut handbooks...that would be neat, almost like having the gypsy where all the carts can be listed (I don't have a gypsy 9because of the linking-thing) either) - I have the baby bug, E and about 20 carts.


Thanks for any info on these.....


aren't electronic items marvelous?????????????

You don't need a subscription or anything. You buy the books from the corresponding sites. Kindle- Amazon.com, Nook- Barnes and Noble, Sony- Borders. You can purchase books right on the e-reader, some you have to be in wifi, and some you do not. Or you can purchase online and have it wirelessly transfer to your e reader. One of the best things I have bought!! But I also read like crazy!!

I don't know about the rest of the e-readers, but the iphone, ipad, and itouch are awesome! You use the GoodReader app and download the cartridge handbooks from the cricut website.

I have my sample sheets of the cartridges on mine as well. That way I can get inspiration if I need to.

All you need is to get a pdf reader.



As for the question about permission slips, if you can scan them into pdf files then you can add them as well.

Here are the instructions for using the Good reader" app for the iphone or iPad if anyone is interested:

Good reader is in the iPhone App store. It's only 2.99 but well worth it. After you download it you will then do this:
1. Click on "Web Downloads"
2. Click "Browse the Web"
3. enter "cricut.com" and click "go"
4. When the Cricut website comes up click at the top on "information" and a gray window will pop up, click "follow the link"
5. Now click on "cartridge library" , then "follow the link"
6. then you will find the cartridges you own on the list and click on the "view" link under the "handbook" column. This time you will click on "follow the link" and the download will begin. It will ask you if you want to check your web downloads I usually click "not now" then go aheaad and download the rest.
7. After you have downloaded all your handbooks then you can click on "go there" and it will show you your downloads in progress. you have to kind of scroll down the list to see the "recent downloads".
8. from the "web downloads" screen you can arrow back ("good reader") and then click on the green folder that says "my documents" and all that you downloaded will be there.
9. You can be done here but I like to organize my handbooks by clicking on the "actions" button at the top right and creating folders for them all. You click on a handbook and then click "move" to put them where you want. It is really neat. I have a cricut folder and an imagine folder.

This is easier than it looks when written. You will quickly learn how to do it and then LOVE not having to haul around your books. :) Hope this helps.


asked my hubby to let me use his iPad for this!!! I am excitedLOL

I tried it on my Kindle and I didn't think it was very easy to read it. I use my G more anyway, and when I get the E2 I won't need them at all. At least I keep telling myself that. Istill think they are a great idea on the iPad or a Nook since they are in color.

I have the Nook color, could someone post the instructions for down loading the handbooks? I am new to this and would love to hear of other sites where you get books from as well. I have only been to the Barns & Noble site so far and I don't always want to pay for a book. I have heard there are many free book sites. Thanks!

I have the Kindle not the Nook but if you go to barnesandnoble.com there are thousands of books to download, and free ones too. Amazon has some free books but you can only download them to a Kindle. There are other sites you can download from but I found that all the sites have pretty much the same books. As far as downloading the cart booklets, just go to cricut.com and go to products, then carts. When you click on each cart you have the option of clicking a digital copy and save it to your computer. Once its saved there I'm not sure what to do for the Nook but with the Kindle all I had to do was drag and drop into the Kindle. I would imagine its similar. Hope that helps.

I was able to download my carts onto my phone. I always have them with me when I shop and keeps me from duplicating carts. Between my phone and my gypsy, I'm always ready to create.

My first post, but had to rave about the nookcolor. I haven't tried this with the cricut booklets, but have with other PDFs. WHen you opend the nookcolor, press the half moon button at the bottom of the screen..this will open and give options. Press library. At the top another set of options opens. Press my files. This is where you can store documents and PDFs. My son's science teacher has pdf review sheets that I drag and drop into this folder. Works great! As far as permission slips for field trips, I have scanned documents, saved them and then dragged and dropped into this folder.
You can even save home dvds on the nook color! I haven't tried it, but you might be able to save a dvd that helps with your cricut , gypsy, etc.FOr further help, b&N has a discussion board. Google this and it will help youy tremendously.
I have even created word docs and saved them on the nook color.

I have really enjoyed my nook color!

I have the Nook Color and I store all the handbooks on a micro SD and just load new ones on it as they come out. I love how they look on the Nook, because they are almost the same size as the actual book and of course in color.
