Gradually over the past couple of months, I have put my Nook aside because I've found I prefer reading books on the Ipad Nook app. Sometimes it was handy to have both, for instance when Cliff was reading one book and I was reading another; however, it's rare for Cliff to read fiction during the spring, summer, and fall.
So I'm in the process of reading "Child 44", which was a Free Fridays selection some time back (excellent book). For the last couple of days, when I go to my book on the Ipad, it's been telling me that I opened several books on different pages on "another device". That would be my Nook.
Today it hit me that I haven't seen or used the actual Nook in awhile, only the Ipad app.
Somebody has my Nook! I looked around the house in the usual places, but I didn't find it.
I called Nook support and explained what happened; my Nook is now useless to anyone who tries to use it. If I should find it, I can call and get it working again.
The worst part of this whole mess is my trying to explain it to Cliff, because he doesn't understand the difference between a Nook and an Ipad. I told him all he has to realize is that the Nook is an $80 device, while the Ipad is (or was when I bought it) worth about $600.
That was something he understood.
All is well.
