My experience with the Nook Simple Touch so far has been very good. I really like the convenience and neatness that e-book readers offer: no physical books to store or degrade or lug around, customization, instant gratification.

|Calibre trumps e-book market fragmentation|
I have only two issues with Calibre so far:
- Books with Adobe's Adept DRM (Kobo, Google, etc.) aren't automatically stripped by the Calibre plugin. Instead, I need to import them into the Adobe Digital Editions application and place them on my Nook from there. Once they're on the Nook, I can import them into Calibre and strip the DRM (Nook uses a different DRM scheme than other ePub stores).
- Sometimes when I download a cover for an e-book in Calibre, the cover doesn't display on my Nook. I'm not sure what the root cause is, but these books' titles tend to begin with "The". It's not for every "The" book nor dos it only affect "The" books, and I've gotten it to go away by picking a different cover.

I took some advice and got a case/screen cover/skin package. It's nice not to have to worry about the screen getting scratched, or the device taking a hard fall, and the skin makes it look pretty.

Also, today there was this piece of news, which is most likely a very good thing for the Nook ecosystem.
