Christmas 2.0 LOL Just like last year, B&N's website is crashing again with everyone registering and buying for the new Nooks.

Looks like it's all back up and running. Maybe just a rough hour there around 9am? I kept getting error messages trying to download my books onto the new Nook.

Did you get a new Simple Touch, Nancy?

Why, yes- I did (I know you're shocked and surprised). I got all my stuff loaded on no problem from both B&N and ADE and am messing with the shelves. I was like an addict this last week though without my ereader. It didn't matter that I have tons of paperbacks here on the TBR I'm trying to whittle down, it didn't matter that I knew it was under the tree, I was still all out of sorts.

Oh now I remember. enlightened So how do you like it? And did you finish even ONE of those paperbacks while you were between readers?

I did- one fiction, one non-fiction paper library book, and a travel book. I've been alternating one e-library book, one owned ebook, and one paper TBR. As more and more of my WL books are being included in the digital libraries, I have less and less ones I want to swap for, so the pile is definitely going down. It got back up to 116 after the Borders going out of business sale, but I've whittled it back down to 95 and dropping.

I still have 2 tall book cases filled, and various other shelves in the house. I am trying to move them out, if its available in ebook format, I can get it when I am ready to read it. I have gotten rid of at least 1000 but probably still have 1000. At least when I hoard ebooks, they don't collect dust :)
