What a nice surprise waiting at my door today – a box from UPS that has a brand new Nook in it! I ordered it last week and didn’t know how long it would really take to get here. Since I didn’t pay extra for expedited shipping, I figured it would take a week to 10 days to arrive. But it got here on the fourth day after I ordered it at night online.
The Nook has to charge up the battery and then the battery life is really long – the booklet that came with it says the battery can last about 2 weeks without needing to be recharged! That is awesome and I hope that turns out to be true. The weird thing is that there is no way to turn off the Nook, so the battery life is not extended by turning off the device. That’s a little weird to me – especially if there is any kind of GPS device or app on the Nook that tracks where I am. That’s kinda creepy to think that you can’t turn it off and some with bad intentions might be tracking you. Ick.
