I have seen the new episodes. I am so Happy that they finally brought the show back! I just wish it could have been on a major network instead of cable, since I don't have cable, but still happy nonetheless! :smileyvery-happy:

My Nook is named "Hermione" after the Harry Potter character, since she likes books so much.

I named my Nook "George Pausch" after the authors of my first two books I read on the Nook.

 

"Last Words" by George Carlin

"The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch

I just ordered mine this weekend so I don't have it yet, but I think I'm going to name it Nookie Stackhouse.

Teslyn, Joline is the name of my laptop. I thought about the more mainstream Aes Sedai, but I don't like how their names are pronounced.

Re: What did you name your nook?

When I got my nook a month ago I named it Lizzy after Pride and Prejudice but the name just didn't fit so I changed it to Phouka after War for the Oaks.  Since my nook got stolen over the weekend I'm trying to decide if I want a new name for when I get a replacement or if I should just go back to Phouka.

 

@Fuddster: I did consider BrainPal but it just didn't fit for me and I like my nook too much to name it any of the names from the book.

Re: What did you name your nook?

After much consideration and wanting a literary term, I named my nook "Laureate".

Re: What did you name your nook?

Following the convention at my house (the big iPod is Beastie, the little one is Baby), the nook is now Bibli, short for Biblio.

 

It was about as bookish as I could get.

LOL, there are some awesome names.  I called mine "Chris's Nook", but now I am thinking "Some call me Tim".

Re: What did you name your nook?

An update to my earlier post, just for the heck of it.  A name isn't complete with out a middle and a last, at least to me, so I chose to bestow these upon my Nook, as well.

Re: What did you name your nook?

Ahh, no. Aes Sedai (like Egwene, Moiraine, Suain) is the Wheel of Time series and Bene Gesserit (like Jessica, Irulan, Darwi) is the Dune series. Even though Teslyn Baradon is an unlikeable character (Red Ajah!) I've always liked her name.
