I wish I could give more than just 1 laurel for this post!

This post made my day. I just absolutely hate all the time my nook takes up in my life. It has greatly complicated it what with all the books I now have to read. 55 Fictionwise, 35 from BN. I am getting darn sick of it staring at me all the time, saying, "Read me. Read me now!" Maybe they'll make a nook musical.
I also wish that darned B&N would get with the program and make me pay for them to replace my battery and why oh why can't I get my nook to run out of space to put those pesky books, screensavers, wallpaper, mp3's, pdf's, audio books, when will it end?

Not to mention being able to borrow ebooks from the public library if you're able to get a card to one of those libraries! I live in a small town and was able to get a free card to a public library that has a decent selection of ebooks 6 hours away (same state) while I was visiting a relative.

And here I am getting ready to tell you all the great points about the Nook and how everyone else sucks while opening this thread...

Finally a master of irony! When I want to see what a product is really like I search for both "I hate" and "I love". I'm not finding very many "I hate" except for this post, which has been the most useful one so far.
Thanks for posting. I can't wait to buy one so I can hate it too.
Oh and I really hate that I'm already buying and reading books on my Android that will be available on my new Nook as well!

At first I avoided this thread like the plague..I'm glad I came in.
I must hate my nook too because I just got a friend to let me borrow a book for the first time, and it begs me...don't go to bed..read..you know you want to.

YES! We should all be a bunch of Nook haters on this board.
BTW, lovely post. It made my day.

I was wakened by a small temblor around 4 this a.m. -- then while trying to get the details of the quake on local tv I instead watched wide-eyed idiots who also "felt" it. So I really needed some humor -- thanks.
Did you grab your Nook during the trembler so it would be safe if the trembler had become a real earthquake? LOL!!
Seriously, I'm glad it didn't turn into anything bigger and that you are ok!!

That was one of the funniest posts I have read. All I have been doing for weeks is telling my husband how much he wants one and not to get one of those other ones. He just keeps saying that he will decide. I think that finally pushed him over the proverbial edge into Nookdom.
Just what I needed to read after a rough day!

And again - Fictionwise, and many other third party companies, use formats that are compatible with Kindle. Apple has many apps that you can read on, from B&N, to Kindle, to comcis, in which, yes, you buy from third parties.
The myth that Nook is the only open party reader is simply that, a myth. And by the way, people who do spread this misinformation aren't making a good name for themselves, nor for B&N.
