But if the OP had posted what turned out to be the real message:
"If you don't want to buy eBooks from Barnes & Noble, but you do want to load thousands of eBooks with variable digital characteristics from other sources onto your eReader, and have your device handle those files with all the bells and whistles that B&N provides for its own books, don't buy Nook because it doesn't do that."
then the only responses that we could have come up with would have been clever variations on
and we would have missed out on this cathartic discussion.
And what a loss THAT would have been!
