nook shipping package dimensions?

My nook is arriving today. I have already sold it on eBay for a, well, healthy profit.

I need to have my wife ship it out today. Can someone please tell me the dimensions of the box B&N ships the nook in so I can remotely process the PayPal shipping label? I know the weight is 2.10 lbs (from the UPS tracking site).

Thanks.

(p.s. don't get in a tizzy that I sold my nook on eBay for $489. Capitalism at it's best...)

I don't think you'll be getting much help. Buying something in demand solely for the purpose of selling it on ebay is not something people really like to see.

Seems to me that the person that bought the OP's Nook was glad to see him buy it just for the purpose of selling it. It means that they can get one for Christmas even though they didn't order early. Win-win for everyone, right?

I bought it to keep. Once I realized I could make a few hundred dollars on eBay, I decided to keep my Kindle 2 and sell it.

Please don't act like I'm some jerk for doing this. The buyer made a conscious decision like an adult to overpay to have it for Christmas. Win-win, IMO.

Anyhow, thanks for the help. Actually I called B&N support and they helped me. The "overpriced" nook is on the way to the buyer...and I made $200 from the deal.

Awesome.

By the way, I'm sure the buyer's gift recipient will be happy to see a nook underneath the Christmas tree. Had it not been for my evil eBay plot, they wouldn't have had one.

Not my fault they didn't pre-order and were willing to pay double to have it for Christmas. Not my fault at all.

Sorry you don't see ways to make money in this world. Everything you buy is "marked up" just like the nooks on eBay are. It's called capitalism and it's alive and well.

If you don't understand, go to a store and raise cane that they have marked the item up to make a profit. It's just not fair, now is it?
