I have fallen in love, my lovelies!
With my new Nook.
What did you think I was in love with? Not something non-book related I hope?
I went yesterday on my lunch break to Barnes and Noble (which is located quite conveniently — only 4 miles from my office). Now, I had planned to wait until Saturday to purchase my new toy, but where’s the fun in that? Happy early birthday to me! (I like this using my birthday as an excuse to buy things for myself idea. Wonder how long I can keep it up…)
I’m the most impatient person, like, ever. Let’s just be honest.
I got a pretty case for it too… Which turned out quite well — they didn’t have any more in stock, so I had to buy the display, so I got 30% off! Rock on. This was the case I really wanted, so I wasn’t going to buy a different one. And who doesn’t love a bargain? (The back of it is a ? I find it so funny.)
So, I sat in the Starbucks area, whipped out my netbook (another thing I’m in love with), and set it up. I downloaded 3 books and preordered Mockingjay all before I left. Haha.
IT IS SO COOL! As a small note — I have no problem with the touch screen navigation (I had seen some iffy reviews on it).
I started reading The Eternal Ones on it last night. You’ll get that review on Thursday.
Point being — I’m a happy camper, I totally love it. Thanks to those of you who helped me make my decision.
