Prepare To Be Assimilated. Resistance Is Futile.

So, you all know I got a nook™ for Christmas (which had to be back ordered, so I actually got it for my birthday in February).  Apparently, I have grown accustomed to reading things the "nook" way.  See those little arrows on the sides?  You press those to advance or go back a page.  Today, while reading one of those practically obsolete books made out of paper, I found myself pressing a non-existent button in the margin and trying to figure out why the words on the page didn't change.  I repeated this useless action 3 or 4 times before I remembered I had to physically turn the page if I wanted to read any further.

It was exhausting!

Yeah, reverting to manual systems can be annoying.

Haven't tried any of the readers yet. Probably has something to do with the overflow of unread books I keep stacked on the the coffetable... not to mention the floor...the hearth...the sidetable...the floor...
