Nook Cases

We have 12 Nooks that I will check out to students.  What cases are you using for circulation?  Cases from Barnes and Noble are rather expensive, I've found an OK one on Amazon for about  $13.00 - that price is better.  Any suggestions?

Broken E-readers?

I really hate to bring this one up but it is a problem for me.  Let me start out by saying Barnes and Noble has been wonderful about replacing any Nook that has broken. That being said, I'm waiting to send my sixth nook back. All of the problems have been screen failure.

The plug end of the cord is quite hard and the screen failures have happened at the point that this part of the power cord touches the screen. I'm asking my students to transfer that part of… Continue

Credit Cards

I had never purchased a store  credit card in the past so I can't claim to be an expert. What worked for us  was buying a green dot card from Wal Mart. It's a Visa card.  You will need to put a minumum amount of money on the card, I think it's $20, I believe it then functions as a debit card. The card costs $3.00. There's a plethora of cards at the check out, but this is the one that our B & N manager suggested would work for us and so far it has. I have had to pay no fees and the only…
