I love my Nook. Unfortunately it has already caused me some grief though. This story is a little old but after discussing it with a close friend last night, and laughing hysterically afterwards, I feel as if it needs to be shared.
Last week I was lying in bed and was spending quite a bit of time in the free ebook section on the Barns and Noble store. I have a ton of free samples of books but it gets frustrating when you get to the last page….”Please purchase to continue this book”. It always seems to come as soon as I get sucked into the book. Imagine my pure joy when I realized that there are free books out there!
I quickly scanned the decent looking ones and the downloading began. I came across one that had a semi interesting synopsis. I got the impression that it was about some woman that was forced to see a doctor because of her mother who thought she had psychological issues. It was set in the late 1800’s so I thought it would be a great look into where psychology was then and now.
This was not a correct assumption. I read about 10 pages and quickly realized that “hmmmmm, oh dear! This is not a good book”. I wanted it off of my Nook immediately but I couldn’t figure out how to. After some rooting around I decided to put it in the archive file. Where that file is….I have no idea. But it’s hidden away.
Last night I was once again trying to wind down from a long Monday. As soon as I opened the store tab this is the sentence that brought me back to the event that enfolded last week. “Because you purchased ____________ (no, I will not tell you the title) you might enjoy these other erotic novels.”
AHHHHHH! I quickly realized that this wasn’t going to go away quickly. My Nook has the dirty book stashed away in the archival! What if I borrow my Nook to someone and they get into the Archived File and sees that I am hiding this? I am hiding it for a reason, it is dirty and naughty and because I do not know how to delete it (Do you have a Nook? Can you send me instructions?!). But I am NOT hiding it because I secretly enjoy those kinds of “books”. As I told my friend we were laughing at the predicament I once again got myself into.
I now am going to download carefully and I think I will buy a book or two so my Nook stops thinking I am a dirty girl. I’m Clean. Promise.
