I agree with KLMA about the name Nook being cool.  When I was a young girl, There was a "nook" on the upstairs landing next to my room.  It had a studio couch, table and lamp plus a skylight.  That was my sactuary where I could bring my books to read undisturbed.  I spent many hours there, happily in "another world".

I remember a quote introduced to me by my favorite english teacher:


               "The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books"


                 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


The name "Nook" reminds me of warm & wonderful memories with books in my nook.

I know there are some lingering questions in here. Many are answered in the eBooks Help Board, but we'll post a roudup on Friday.


Thansk for your patience.
