Picking up my nook at lunch!

My wife gave me the green light to get my b-day present early, so I am heading to B&N at lunch to buy my nook.

Congratulations! I got my Nook on Tuesday (an upgrade from my 505), and I love it! So far it's frozen once (and hopefully only that one time!), and I'm still mastering the finger swipe to change pages, but otherwise, it's been a great experience. I'm also addicted to downloading eBooks with wireless - how did I ever live without this on my Sony?!?! Even though I ported like 80 unread books from the Sony to the Nook, I've still bought like a dozen books! Ha.

I plan on doing that this weekend. Can I find the instructions here on MobileRead or should I google it?

Thanks! My meeting ran late, so I have to pick it up on my way home. I was hoping to charge it from work this afternoon and play with it once I got home!

I'm digging the nook! I haven't done the softroot yet, but as I convert and add all my existing ebooks I can definitely see the need for a better file manager.

I definitely enjoy reading on the nook more than reading on the T/X.
