Red face The Ultimate Sin

I am out to confess a most terrible sin. I have bounced from E-Reader to E-Reader in a quest to find true bookworm happiness. I had finally settled on the Nook Simple Touch. It was, for the most part, the perfect E-Reader. Still wanted an "Add to Shelf" feature, but I was willing to let that go in favor of all that the Reader had going for it.

But then I saw the Sony PRS-T1. A shiny, flashy little E-Reader. Better shelf-management, better page turn buttons, a feature to make the book you're reading the screensaver, and a MP3 player that shuffles the music. It had it all, and I told the Simple Touch that it was time to see other people. I gave the Simple Touch to my mother.

I got the Sony, and discovered bad, terrible things about it. It sorted by author completely differently, and since my Calibre Library had been named to accomodate the Nook system this was brutal. I spent two days renaming, and still it didn't quite fix the problem. Then there was it's slow processing power compared to the update that sped up the Nook, and made the fonts crisper. I mean, for three thousand books, the Nook will near-instantly display the covers when browsing through the Library, but the Sony just couldn't digest the content I was feeding it.

Freezing issues, shutdowns, and resets. It fought what I wanted from it tooth and nail. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore, and sold it off as a Christmas gift to someone else.

I couldn't take back the one I gave to my mom so I had to use the money to buy another Nook Simple Touch. So the question stands as this: Will the Nook ever forgive me, or will it explode one day while I'm reading the E-Book version of "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus"

The Kindle wants you to think that your Nook is just like people: she'll get her feelings hurt and want no further relationship with you. But really, the Kindle just wants you to be with her instead. Go back to the Nook, if you love her, and I think you'll find her all forgiveness and redemption.

But the Kindle is obsessed with dead authors and advertisements. What would the Kindle know about the relationship between the E-Reader and the person reading from it?

What the Kindle knows about relationships doesn't matter, since all relationships are as different as the people in them. Go back to your Nook, and ask forgiveness for being so stupid and shortsighted and for not truly appreciating how special she is. Then promise her that you now know better, and that you've now realized how much you love and need her, and tell her you love her more than ever.

She might not forgive you right away, but she might at least be willing to listen.

The pop-up stylus of the PRS-650 is your clue.

To the OP: Since you purchased a new Nook you better not let it see your mom's. Breaking up to date its sibling is not cool.

I'm in a happily polyamorous relationship with a PRS-950 and a PRS-350.

Cool

So what happens if you've got an E-Reader, and an I-Pad. How do you introduce them? Should they share the library, or do you divide it amongst them? Will my Nook find out I get some of my books from Amazon? Will she understand?

Please. I need all the good karma I can get!

In my native tongue, the word for computer is neutered. Er. I mean "neutral". Neutral. Really.
