Good news! A new Nook touch screen is going on sale in 3 weeks! How fortunate then that I JUST BOUGHT a Nook for my mom. It's already obsolete. Yargh!
It took me 2+ hours to get the wi-fi to work on it, which according to all the poking around on the internet I did (and a tech support call to my husband) to figure out how to fix it, was a common problem. Maybe that will be fixed in the new model. But she has the Nook and already finished a book on it since Saturday, so not all is lost.
I suppose there is the option to return the one she got and wait until June 10 to purchase the new one. It's actually slightly cheaper, too!
So, if you're in the market for an E-reader, be mindful of what's in store in the next month.
