- Nooks have the eInk display.
- I can put pdfs in it.
And, you know, I can put pdfs in it for convenient reading on the go. PDFs like patterns. Yes, I will no longer have to go down into the man-cave that is our unfinished basement to use the printer when I want a pattern for on the go. No more frozen toes! No more emailing files to myself to pull them up on the downstairs computer! The only problem is that you can't (as far as I can figure) download files directly onto the Nook, except that you do it through your computer. So, I plug the Nook into my USB port, and download the file directly to the Nook. Requires forethought, but means I don't have to try to browse the internet on the Nook. Fair trade.
(Also, remember to enter my contest! I'm excited, these are fun.)
