I finally caved and bought a WiFi Nook over the weekend. After scanning the many (many!) pages of free yet oft-smutty titles, I started an eWishList so I could figure out which books I wanted to buy and load on my new device first. Today I was IMing with my mom and shared my new purchase story with her when we hit a bit of a techie lost-in-translation situation.
Me: I bought a Nook over the weekend and now I need to get some books to put on it. Do you know what that is?
My mom: I think so. Something that fits in a corner?
In her defense, I did recently move and just last week I told her about my new bookcase. I'm curious what her guess would have been if I had went with the Kindle!
