If you’re a Facebook friend of mine you may have seen me post that I bought myself a Barnes & Noble nook (yes, it’s lower case) a week or so ago. I took it out of the box when it came, played with it a bit, and then repackaged it.
I’m going to wrap it up and open it on Christmas morning in front of my kids.
They know I’ve been wanting an e-reader. Kindle or nook – I didn’t really care. I had decided the sweet spot for price for me would be $99 – whichever device dropped to that price or below first I would buy.
Well, I found a refurbished B&N nook on B&N’s eBay storefront for $99 (with free shipping!), and it was the WiFi+3G model, which retails new for $199.
I am very excited to start reading some books on it! Waiting till Christmas is proving to be very difficult!
