Anybody know if there's anything I can do with it before I throw it out? The e-ink screen broke. It was more of a hassle and same expense to fix it than to just buy a new one, so I bought a new one. Nook Simple Touch.

Any ideas?

Ebay sells tons of broken units.  People use them for parts.

Yeah, maybe try ebay. Just be clear with what is broken and that it's for parts only..

ALSO if you do 'throw it out" it needs to go to one of those e-waste recycle places and not just in the trash.

Before you sell it for parts, are you sure it's still not registered to B&N? If they get a new screen on it, or take out the hard drive, doubt you want that info still there.
