Happy Friday!

My Nook and I got in a fight. I wanted to download A.S. King's Please Ignore Vera Dietz.

Because the books looks like something would love, love, love. And it is a 2011 Printz Honor Book. Which makes me want to read it more.

Epic fail! It didn't download! Gasp! The very first issue with my Nook! And I can't just start over and re-buy it because it says I already purchased it. It should be fixed soon, according to the third Customer Care Rep I talked to. Blah! I feel so betrayed, Nook!

I could download the biography of Benjamin Franklin just fine! But not Vera! Get your priorities straight, Nook!

Look - I've got plenty of books to keep me company. But there is something to be said for a physical book in your hands. It doesn't leave you. It doesn't not download! That is all.

Happy Friday and Happy Three Day Weekend. YES!


  1. See! That right there! That is what I was ranting to my mom last night about those things over! I WONT be convinced to buy one. I love good hard books too much. One malfunction and all those books you bought, POOF. And now that, not being able to get a book you want *I want it too!* ...okay...shutting up...

    Hope you get your book!
    Happy weekend!!

  2. That happened to me with Amazon mp3s once. They let me download it again. Technology is annoying sometimes.

    I just checked that book out from the library, by the way, after reading a recommendation on someone else's blog. Can't wait to get started!

  3. That's one of the things that keeps me from buying an E-reader these days.
    Nice to meet you and your blog, btw!
