I did it all for the nook(ie)

(So you can take that cookie and stick it up your yeah!)  (By the way, what ever happened to Fred Durst?  He's been awfully quiet lately.  Probably a good thing though.)

For a few weeks now, I've been mulling over Barnes & Noble's nook and bit the bullet and got one on Friday.  I'm obsessed.  I love it.

I got the Wi-Fi one and not the version with 3G.  I just didn't see enough need for 3G to justify the increased cost.  A few things that sold me on the nook:  1) ebooks are cheaper than paper books; 2) B&N offers "Free Book Fridays" in which they choose a book that you can download for free; 3) there's chess and sudoku on the thing; 4) you can put music on it; 5) you can connect to the internet to check email, google stuff and whatnot (it's a bit cumbersome, but not too bad); 6) our local library offers ebooks that are compatible with the nook.

I loved the B&N covers that you can buy, but they ran around $30 to $80 (and up), and I figured I could make a cover to protect it for a whole lot cheaper.  I used some scrap felt and a spare button and here's what I came up with:

Oh, and if you're wondering what I'm reading now, it's a book called "The Anthologist" by Nicholson Baker.

That is too cute. You could make those and sell them on Etsy (in your spare time, of course).

I've contemplated selling them on Etsy, actually Kathy. I'm going to see how this one holds up after a few more weeks of wear and tear then maybe make some adjustments and see about selling them. Could be fun!

April--yep, I made it! Check back through my archives (Dec. 2007 maybe?) and check out the Christmas stockings I made for Chris's nieces and nephews. I'm a crafty girl. :)
