I decided last night to watch a DVD of the TV miniseries "The Shining" because it was made at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park (where we recently visited) and was the version of which Steven King approved. There were a couple of DVD's in their jackets laying on top of the DVD player (yes, I'm a clutterbug), and when I moved them, there was my Nook.
I'm undecided about whether to call and get it re-activated, since I always use the Nook App on my Ipad instead of the actual Nook device.
I still don't understand why I kept getting the message that my book was on a different page on another device, since nobody was using it. Oh well. Things that make you go "hmmm".
