Food and shelter aside, there are basically two things in life that I can’t live without: my computer and a good book. Although tablets combine the best of both worlds as computers and e-readers, they’re still a pretty penny. But now Groupon is offering the 7″ Nook Color Tablet for only $75 with free shipping. That’s almost 50% off the $139 list price. This model is refurbished, but it comes with a Barnes and Noble one-year warranty and free returns if you’re not completely satisfied. Here are some of the great features:

  • 8 GB of built-in memory; expandable up to 32 GB with microSD card
  • VividView 7-inch touchscreen displays more than 16 million colors, reduces glare, and can be read in darkness
  • Access to more than 3 million books, magazines, comics, and kids’ books
  • Browse tablet essentials–email and web with video
  • Wireless connectivity with free WiFi in all Barnes & Noble stores
  • Preloaded apps including Sudoku and Pandora
  • Up to 8 hours of reading on a single charge
