We’ve seen some interesting talk about what people are calling their nooks, and thought it might be fun to have a thread specifically on this topic. … So, what are you calling your nook?

My nook's name is Yotsuba. (Yotsuba is a character in a story I especially like ~ her name translates to mean "four leaves" and is part of a longer phrase ~ yotsuba no kuroba which means four leaf clover) Since my nook worked perfectly, out of the box, and I have not had any deal-breaking problems with it, I thought the name was only fitting.

I always name my gadgets after astronomical objects, and I chose to call my nook "Pluto" because it's not very large like the former planet, but something you can snuggle up with like the Disney dog.

I'm a Feb 1 person, but it will probably be something Twilight or Harry Potter. If Twilight - either Demetri or Marcus, possibly Sam. If HP - Severus.

I might change it, but right now it's "Dont touch". A gentle reminder for my girls who can't seem to keep their hands off my things.

I will be naming my nook Edward.
Sadly, one of my numero uno reasons for getting an eReader is so I can read whatever I want in public without people having any idea. For example, as a closet Twilight addict, I can swoon over Edward Cullen all I want and tell people I'm actually reading Salman Rushdie.
HA! I'm pathetic...

I'm starting to think I should call my nook
'my self-indulgent difficult cranky toy that doesn't work all that well.'
I was able to register my nook but the instructions didn't continue long enough. I got information about an update on the 'daily' but when I connected the nook to my computer with the cable it started a whole new set of difficulties. You need to have a place where nook users can go and find simple descriptions about how to use the nook they have. The 'nook page' on Barnes and Noble is all about ordering a nook and not much if anything about using one.
