ou can't be serious!     No, there is NO chance of getting shocked lifting a NC out of water, no matter where the water is.

 

And, if you have the accidental damage portion coverage wtih Square Trade, yes, they will "cover" it....HOWEVER, the Square Trade warranty will ONLY cover the original cost of your NC ($250) LESS any shipping charges for the TOTAL life of the warranty.

 

You drop it and break it...anywhere....you'll get a check for $250 less the shipping cost back to them and you will no longer have a Square Trade Warrant.

 

 

Me: Now, on the square trade faq page, the question is asked if it covers theft and the answer was no, because the damage had to have happened during normal usage, ya da ya da ya da........

 

hehehe....You think Square Trade considers reading on the john normal use?

Re: Reading While on the John

Daughter is doing well thank you. It was a rough year that year, but she is cancer free now and has had her first (and probably only) child.

 

I've had homes with bathrooms where the commode is next to the sink. All kinds of things end up in the commode. Yuck...

 

I never take my Nook or NookColor into the bathroom because I KNOW what will happen!

Sometimes...you need just a little "mental" relaxation while on the potty.

Re: Reading While on the John

Ok, to steal something from another thread, what do you call a Nook owner that reads their nook in the bathroom?

Re: Reading While on the John

Ok, So someone mentioned that their nook will not fit in their back pocket. It fits just great in my back pocket of you 501's. That is where I keep it when my daughter and I are in the store. I do have a new cover and I am guessing that it will no longer fit. That could cause a dilemma. Protection or convenience? Hmmm things to ponder.

 

I could just see it flipping out of my back pocket into the can. PROTECTION IT IS!!!

Re: Reading While on the John

If you really must read your Nook on the toilet or in the bathtub, seal it in a sturdy ziploc bag first. You'll have to try harder to use the touch screen, but it's not likely to get wet.

[ Edited ]

If I were going to be using the bathroom long enough to have to read, I would either be sick or really need a laxative!!!!!!!!!!:smileytongue: And in either case I would not feel like reading.

Re: Reading While on the John

Id be willing to bet that most BR readers have kids. :smileyhappy: I found the BR was the only room I could read uninterupted. The habit formed. And yeah hemoroids are a risk. :smileyhappy:

Would have to agree that the BR is one of the few places I get the quiet time to read.  Of course my 2 year old is now learning how to open/close doors so that may be going away soon. :smileyhappy:  And to think I had finally convinced my 13 year old to knock before entering a room and that whatever it is it can wait a few minutes until I'm out of the bathroom.

Re: Reading While on the John

   I was the oldest child in the family growing up and always being called on to help. I would lock myself in the bathroom and make a pallet of folded towels on the floor to lie on and read. I could be in there for hours and no one would bother me.

 

Of course the dinner dishes were still waiting for me when I emerged, my mother was no fool.
