Oops! Stupid search & replace.
I just read an article about a guy who bought War and Peace for his Nook. He then discovered something strange. Take a look at at a few passages from his version of War and Peace. Now, can you guess what word was replaced with the word Nook?

That graphic is goofy. If one had simply replaced the word "nook" with "kindle," only the first example would have made any sense in the first place. The second one should have resulted in nookd (could have been kindle originally), I'm not sure what the third one was... "have a kindle of one's own"? And assuming the last example was "watched kindling burned up brightly" originally... it would have never turned up in a search for "kindle" at all.
So while I think the original story concerning this incident had a basis in truth... there seems to be quite a few spinoffs that are not so grounded in reality.
