My Nook Simple died earlier this year (after already being replaced once) and in the throes of new motherhood I decided to wait to buy a new e-reader until I started traveling again. Then B&N offered $30 off the new Nooks, so after consulting with MoBob (CFO) I got a Nook HD. It takes a little getting used to - for example, web pages don't automatically re-set to the mobile version so the text is small - and it's different enough from my iPhone that I still had to tinker a bit. But I like it. I'm glad to see all my "books" back in circulation, as well as all the magazines that I hadn't downloaded since the previous Nook's demise. The screen quality and color are fantastic, and I love being able to check my email on something bigger than a deck of cards.
