I woke up to a call from my bank that my debit card number had been stolen and my money drained out of my account. I went to the bank and resolved the issue. I went to the store to pick up a few groceries and I left my purse with my Nook in the cart after I was done loading groceries in the car. I realized I didn't have my purse when I got home. I turned around, went back to the store and the purse and my Nook was gone. The store said no one turned it in and the cart guys didn't see it either. :(

I lost my Nook, social security card, ID's, credit cards, debit cards, student ID, my MP3 player...My NOOK. :( I am so sad.

This is horrible, Colleen!  I read on the other thread that you unregistered you Nook.  Will you be able to access all you books when you get a new one?  I hope so!

So sorry this happened to you Colleen :-(

In case you do not get the nook back you should call customer service. Here is a thread I found about stolen nooks:

You may want to at least change the password.

I called B&N. They unregistered my old Nook and I registered the new one today. I'm already reading the book I was in the middle of. I lost my case, light, skin and I just remembered today that I had a B&N gift card tucked into my case for $25. :( That sucks.

OMG I'd be sick. :( I'm so sorry you had all of that stolen. I had my purse and wallet stolen once and it was devastating. I had my son's birth certificate in there, too. I felt so violated!

I'm glad you were able to replace your Nook so quickly and I hope someone with a decent streak turns the rest of it in somewhere.
