Hi from Oregon

Hello,
Lurker extrodinare here. Found this forum while looking for information on DRM (hate it). I have an EB1150 bought it in June, but found alot of books I wanted to read it didn't support or were to expensive. Still havent figured out quite how to get the books I want on it but I am trying.
I bought several ebooks from B&N to read on my computer, so as soon as I heard about the Nook I cashed in my points (from various programs) for gift cards and waited for them to arrive, they did, so today I happily went to B&N with my gift cards and tried to purchase it. Sadly B&N only allows 3 gift cards per transaction, I had 8, 2 for $50 and 6 for $25. Bummer.
So I did what anyone would do, I bought a Pocketbook 360 instead!
This will be my first e-ink device. Looking forward to being an active forum member, you all are so helpful.

Lisa

Welcome to MobileRead, tufrostie.

Intersting experience there with those gift cards......wonder if management knows they lost a sale? I wasn't aware of the GC limit.

Enjoy the forums.

I thought it was a bit weird myself. I thought I might go to a B&N store and see if they would exchange the smaller amounts for one big one, or just wait and buy one in the store when they come out. Since its been noted elsewere that you can't buy ebooks with GC I am kinda stuck with what to do.
