Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction.

And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

I have the industrielle full cover.. and its golden...

 


Just curious - did you download that from a torrent site or maybe knock an old lady over the head and take it from her?

Don't buy from Random House, Macmillan, or Penguin until the agency model is COMPLETELY dead.

How hard is it to pop the nook in and out of the clips on the Inustriell cover?  Is it something I could do frequently, or would it get to be a pain?  Thanks!


 

All of the Industriell covers use a solid tab locking system that uses two clips similar to the four clip system that held the Nook in its original packaging.  While it is easier to take out of then its original case, the clips would be a pain to use of you were popping it in and out.  I ended up getting the Dillane Plaid Cover in Night, which uses the caddy at the bottom and the two elastic bands at the top.  Obviously this is easier to remove the Nook from than the Industriell covers, and the Plaid cover also folds back when I'm reading on the Nook and its fairly low profile.

Thanks so much for the tip on the clear covers!  I own an Oberon (which I love so much) and that is great for every day use and transporting my Nook in my work bag.  But I was concerned about beach reading - the sand, most especially!  So I just went on M-Edge and bought the Lime Green Leisure Jacket for my upcoming beach vacation!

Re: Nook covers/sleeves

How would the clear covers work with the touch screen?  Once you got started reading, I would assume you would have little problems with turning the page and such.

That's what the buttons are for - I usually swipe, but I am not against using the buttons. And I don't think the clear cover would pose anymore of a problem than a screen protector does.

I wondered about that with the tabs...  I take mine out a lot.

How much are these running?  I love the look, it would be great on a cruise ship also!

Re: Nook covers/sleeves

@Frog, the M-Edge leisure jacket is $34.99 w/ a flat $5 shipping fee.  I got one in yellow and I know I won't be disappointed when I hit the beach with my nook.

Cover on Amazon

 

Amazon has this cover that's linked above for $15.99.  It's not as attractive as the m-edge leisure, but it is a lot cheaper.

 

I'm still using the large ziploc, but if I go to the beach, I might have to upgrade to a freezer bag or one of these.

Re: Nook covers/sleeves

i have the Bleecker style Cover - the elastic band to keep it closed is a really nice.

I chose this after looking at the options at the B&N store.

Thanks Ann!  I try not to count the cost on something like this, it's more like a cheap insurance policy! :smileyhappy:

Re: Nook covers/sleeves

One of the selling points that appealed to me about the M-Edge Leisure Jacket is that you can place the nook face down into the cushioned cradle, to protect the screen while it's being carried.

Re: Nook covers/sleeves

All of the covers that interest me are sold out.

 

Is there any estimate when more might become available?
