    I've had my Nook also mistaken for an iPad. I've also been asked if it "is one of those iBooks."

    That's the one I always get, too. That or "Why not wait for the iPad?"

    Mine are split almost exactly 50/50 between Kindle and iPad.
    I was born at a very young age.

    I get a lot of "Is that one of them new fangled reading things?" hahahaha kills me everytime!

    First comment I got, I was sitting in B&N drinking coffee literally sitting under a nook sign, and a woman asked "Is that a Kindle?" I couldn't help but laugh hysterically for a few seconds before explaining how much better nook is. It was great!

    "Is that a Kindle?"
    "No, its a latte."
    "I mean the device."
    "No, its a Nook."
    "What's the difference?"
    "See that counter over there, the man behind it gets paid to explain."
    "You're rude."
    "You're the one who interrupted my reading."

    HAHA that exact conversation played in my head right after she asked. Then, being "too nice" as my friends call me sometime, I spent 5 minutes of precious reading time show it off. At least she was impressed, or overwhelmed. Couldn't really tell.

    Today I just got "What is that?" I told her it was a nook and she said she'd never seen one before. If I wasn't at a juicy part in the book I was reading, I'd have explained it more!
