I've had my Nook for over a year. It contains pages and pages of books. I have a dreadful memory, so I spent hours one day placing all those books on shelves with genre labels so I knew where to find my Patricia Briggs without scrolling through ten pages hunting. And I'd remember Juliet Blackwell writes paranormal mystery. And I could look up that great steampunk book I read a year ago. And most important, I'd put all my new material on a shelf all its own so anytime I wanted a new book, voila, there was a selection.
And then I got tired of arguing with AOL and its quirks and decided to change my email address. It seemed innocent enough at the time--sign in to my account at B&N, use the little form to change my address, and voila! Next thing I knew, my Nook would no longer pick up my downloads. I screamed until someone heard me and said I had to unregister my Nook and re-register under the new email. All right, with a lot of grumbling, I figured out how to do that.
Anyone here going to the RT conference? If so, I'll see you there. I haven't figured out how to sign e-books yet, but EVIL GENIUS trading cards will be available! And dang, I still can't make that Amazon Associate button work on Firefox!
