Some e-reader news...

If this is old news, my apologies.

First, a solar powered cover for the Kindle Touch...

Next, a Nook Audio...

Talking Forgive me, gentle reader....

I'm very sorry about this, as the vernacular may be familiar to mainly UK members , but I am human, a simple being, I weep, I cry .......... and I just can't resist it .................

This all sounds like a proposition for a Touch of Nooky .....

This being a family site, I dare not grant enlightenment ......

Kinda curious as to just what the Nook Audio thing is going to be. Some add-on, or a whole new device?

I don't know if this was an April fool joke, but it looks like one.


April 1st is a nuisance. I once gave someone a genuine card telling him how much I liked him on April 1st!! Assume he thought it was a joke because I was young and gorgeous at the time, but I never saw him again.
This year I reported one of my cats missing to various lost and found websites on April 1st. She was genuinely missing, but has now come home.

Oh, the curse of April the first.

Glad to hear yer critter is safe and sound!

Not an April Fool's joke, btw. Neither is it an e-reader...

I need to be more careful.

In other non-breaking news, has anybody seen this?

Nook coming to Europe? Again, if this is old news, ignore.

I need to be more careful.
Companies frequently trademark names for possible future use. No guarantee they'll ever be used; but in case they're needed, they'll already have them instead of trying to buy the rights later.

I'm not saying this is definitely an April Fools joke; but we won't know until either the device is produced or the website goes down for good.

Thank you VaporPunk. I'm so glad she's well and alive; the cats are now grounded for a week minimum!

I could talk cat forever, but I'll reserve that for the cat forums and friends. (imagine cute cat emoticon).

Thanks Tubemonkey, I need to be more careful before posting "news". I thought it might be an e-reader with an audiobook "specialty" (enhanced speakers or something). How I came to that conclusion, I just don't remember... Damn internets...
