Recently a friend sent me a few books to read.
It has been about a year now that I've been mostly reading via my NOOK ereader.
I am very careful with my NOOK. I have never spilled anything on it. It's never been damaged.
I practically ruined the book my friend sent me...
Somehow I managed to get the top edge of the pages wet while reading it at the pool. That doesn't even make sense; it should be the bottom edges that are more likely to become damaged by water. I spilled some food on it while eating (gross). The binding is coming apart; it's literally falling apart.
I'm always thankful for book but my ereader serves me quite well; I'm glad I have it.
I'm also glad I bought the two-year warranty for it because it's obvious that I am not as careful as I'd like to think I am.
Of course I will do what I am able to repair and save the book. I enjoyed the book very much and will keep it on my shelves for someone else to read and enjoy too!
