NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! This is bad. i don't like this. AT ALL.

They are cute, and granted you have to love them more than your Nook, but still I find this unacceptable.

Um, what is a Nook?

I am sorry it is kicked and dead.

But your kids are certainly beyond cuteness. (that's so we don't kill them. The cuteness of kidlets.)

jarvenpa, the Nook is the e-reader made by Barnes and Noble. I use it to read drafts, let others read drafts, and get the instant gratification of ordering YA and romance novels when I'm bored.

I had just purchased Hex Hall, too, and now all I know is that somebody is crying in the bathroom on the first page of the prologue. So sad.

Talk about some shoddy quality, though. I want another one, but I don't really want to reward them for making such a crappy products. It was even in a protective case when it hit the ground.

Dear Heart, you need a good used book shop near you.
(I understand now why I don't know what a Nook is, because it is an Instrument of Satan, inc.)

I have an awesome used book store. But they're open from 10-6 Tuesday through Saturday, so the very few spare moments I have to read generally fall outside of their store hours, and I drive there and get all angry.

It might be different if I were good at planning ahead, but I'm not.

Also, the e-reader is really awesome for reading manuscripts, which my used book store can't really do.

Sorry about the denooking. But christ, yes: those are cute kids. At least using the olde fashioned cloth and paper books, my kid can only destroy one at a time. Unles she figures out what to do with matches, that is.
