This is a very sad day. Very sad. I really do want to cry, or tear my hair out. My Nook Simple Touch has developed an insurmountable problem. The SD card will no longer stay engaged. This is a problem as it only has 512 mb available for side-loading, if that. So now I am not sure what to get, as I have literally thousands of books in my library and I am a fickle flights of fancy rereader. If google would have gone ahead and released an android eink device, I wouldn’t be in this situation. I blame you Google, know this, I blame you. And yes, I buy mostly on Amazon NOW, but that wasn’t always the case.
And if I can’t have the Google Play Store, there aren’t any other fancy dancy upgrades I want or need. I certainly don’t want a backlight as that defeats the purpose of having an ereader for me (sleep disorders are a pain), so the Kindle Paperwhite with its freaking never turning off light, is really a no go for me. I’d probably happily take another another Simple Touch or look at the old Kobo Touch, if I could find them, but alas, neither seems available. And I certainly don’t want to pay extra for features I neither want nor need. Heck, I probably would have let Onyx gouge me for a Boox T68 if those were in stock right now too.
Unless someone out there has a better option, I guess I am looking at a refurbished Kindle at 69.99 with their stupid offers. Which irks me because I bought my Nook ST for only 49.99. Somebody help me out, because I would really like a better option.
