I was hoping to get one for my birthday but that didn't happen. I was almost maxed out on my vacation time, so I sold some of it, had a little extra cash on my hands, and decided that a nook was exactly what that money needed to buy. If I can't use my vacation time for days off, I might as well use it for something fun! And with our big vacation to Spain coming up in October, this will save some weight from all those books I tend to pack in my luggage! LOL! My husband actually came up with that excuse. He's such an enabler.
I'm slowly learning my way around, but I really like it so far. I'm busily shopping around for a cover. There are a few I like on B&N but there are also some I like on Etsy. The agony of decision-making!
I'm mostly poking around in the free e-books right now while I'm learning the ropes, but once I get the hang of things, I would love to start sharing with other nook owners! How many of you are out there? Any tips for a newbie?
Oh, and the name? Jilly Coppercorn from Charles de Lint's Newford books. She's my best character "friend!
