I checked it out in-store at Barnes & Noble and was pretty excited to see it on Nook after typing in my search for “The Real Reason the Queen Hated Snow”.

My daughter tried to take a picture of it but because of the electronic screen on the Nook she got wavy lines — just like with a computer screen.

I’m a book lover. I love the heft, the smell, the rustle of pages. Even so, I am crushing on this Nook and wanting one badly. I’m Nooked!

The CNET NEWS gadget blog, CRAVE, says the Nook is arguably better than Kindle. The Real Reason the Queen Hated Snow is available on both Nook and Kindle as well as in print.

My two cents

Annette Marie Hyder

You are shiny

to flip, heads or tails
into the next stranger’s pocket.

My pockets are deeper than that.
