Any thoughts on whether it's best to not touch it while it charging for the 1st time? I'm dying to turn it on and play around with it, but don't want to start off on the wrong foot with the battery!
You don't have to wait, if it's plugged into the computer USB port, you have to eject the nook in order to use it (from within My Computer, right click on the nook icon and choose eject), but if it's plugged into the wall outlet, you're good to go!
