    Showing off My New NST!

    Lavender_Fawkes

      I recently bought the Nook Simple Touch. I think it's a great reader & I really love it. I have a Nook Color as well, but I found that after reading for prolonged periods my eyes would hurt & I'd get headaches. I also wasn't using all the extras like I thought I would, so when I saw the $20 off offer that B&N had for Father's Day, I just couldn't resist getting a Simple Touch. I'm really glad I did! This is my first eInk device & I still can't get over how the screen looks just like a printed page! It's also so light & easy to hold.

       

      Anyway, I love my new little Nook! Here's the Decalgirl skin I chose for it, Sunset on Lamplight Lane by Thomas Kinkade:

      I've also ordered a simple purple case for it; still waiting for it to arrive. I have my eye on a couple of B&N cases as well. I like to switch up the covers for my gadgets :smileyhappy:

       

      I'd love to see your Nooks as well!

          Your picture didn't come through, but I believe this is the skin you're referring to. I have the Skinomi light wood skin on mine, and quite like it. (I didn't pay that much for it!) The skins really add a lot of personality. I think I'll avoid the zebra skin, though!

           

          The eInk NOOKs are great little devices that fit a real niche. It won't replace my "full" tablet, but I do love having a device that will last for weeks on a single charge, and be readable anyplace I can read a paper book, and then some. Having spent much of last night in a cramped middle plane seat with the guy in front of me in full recline, I really appreciate the compact size. Reading a physical book would have been awkward. It's nice not having to get angsty over fighting for an AC outlet before a flight to have enough juice to make it through. I've taken mine (carefully) to the beach, and had no problem reading in the sun.

           

          I've got the RooCase zip case for mine. I like the "kickstand" prop for reading. In hindsight, the thinner fold-over kickstand version would probably be a sufficient. Either is available in several colors. The zip case does have the removable inner "bikini" case that I pop out for sticking in my bag when space is limited. You can turn the NOOK so the screen faces the stiff back for protection on the move.

            I've had a N1E, a NC and now a NSTG. I'm loving my little Nookie: it's so lightweight and comfortable to hold and easy on my forty something eyes. Amazing battery life!

             

            I'm resisting the urge so far to root it...I hacked my NC to death, LOL. But there's really no need for me to, since I finally caved and got a smartphone. I got this cover for the NSTG. Wish it was available in more colors.

                I have the same Speck case for my NSTG but I got it in purple.  Found it at Target for the same price.  Best Nook case so far.  It is the slimmest one I have found with great protection.
