    Default Gonna Get a Nook

    I have some points from a credit card that I cashed in for some Barnes and Nobles gift cards so I am gonna get a Nook.
    I have been looking to upgrade (get a new ebook) reader). I have the first gen Kindle and like it allot, But decided to get the Nook for a couple of reasons 1 it basically being free 2 I can check out books from the library and I like the layout pretty good I have never really used the keyboard on the kindle so I will not miss that.
    My wife will get the hand me down

    Mitch, welcome to NOOKBOARDS!

    For the most part, I don't think you'll find many trying to change your mind about buying a Nook (from those who post here).

    Are you going 3G or 'lite'?

    Also, a big plus to me is all the sites you can buy eBooks from.

    Think I just will get the lite for 149 and a cover Its not that big of a hassle for me to buy and download to my computer and then transfer over.

    Got my nook Thursday nite.
    The lady at the store asked if I want to register it while I was in the store and I said sure she turned it on and the screen looked like a bar code it had lines running down the whole screen She said this one is BAD so I had to get another one I got kinda worried is this common are they a lot of bad screens Do I need to get the extended warranty that I seen posted some where else.
    Got some free books and used Calibre to put some of my other books on it. Everything looks great it is taking some getting used to with the touch screen I keep wanting to touch the main screen

    Mitch, just from people who post on NOOKBOARDS, I don't think that this is a 'common' problem.

    There are quite a few who get the extended warranty either through B&N or Square Trade.

    Yeah, I remember having to stop myself from touching the eInk screen. Don't worry, that 'habit' will not last more than a week or so.

    Welcome to the club/cult/family of happy Nook owners!

    I haven't heard that screen issue being a widespread problem. Actually, I think that's the first I've ever heard about a problem with the eInk screen.

    Have fun with your new nook and we hope you stick around! There is plenty of good info here and now that you have your nook you should check out the Nook Knacks section of the forum.

    welcome to the cult....er.. uhm.. club
    i have heard of the barcode with kindle not with nook.. but yeah, that's abig NEVER! kinda deal.
    i would say get the square trade warranty (it's inexpensive) i don't have an extended warranty and
    with a first generation product you never know what might happen
