My How The Tables Have Turned – Blog for Deena
Friday night, tragedy struck!
My first generation Nook wet totally mad!
I noticed it at first when I was trying to read a review book. It would let me read a few pages and then it would throw me out to the My Documents folder. I tried restarting it and it had the same problem even with the store it would throw me back out after a few minutes.
I decided it was time for a hard reset.
So I reset the thing and updated it again and got the same problem. Even with the user guide for it. It was simply time to talk to customer service. I logged in to Barnes and Noble’s chat room and told the rep what I had done and he said I needed to send it in.
This absolutely broke my heart!
The way B&N does warranty returns, they just send you a new nook and you send yours back. This means, my nook which was what started The Top Shelf and what led me to all these amazing authors, the gift my Brandon and our best friend Riz gave me for getting out of physical therapy with my back injury would be going back and end up sent out as a refurbished model to someone else.
I broke down into tears. I was a wreck and when I was trying to explain it to my mom, she thought someone on the internet had upset me! It really was quite a mess. Mom told me the extended warranty was part of the gift too and that I should use it.
Begrudgingly and sniffling, I agreed.
I’m still not happy about it and the debacle with the shipping of my Kindle made it for a really bad day. Is anyone else as sentimental about their e-reader? I had to be told that it wasn’t the e-reader that started it all, it was me and that at least I didn’t lose my books. I guess that’s true. I’m still not going to like sending it in.
I know I’m being a little bit too sentimental. I know this refurb is going to be exactly like my old one and I’ve seen refurbs in the past that have actually worked better than the original. It certainly doesn’t mean the end of The Top Shelf and it certainly doesn’t leave me without an e-reader as I have a nook color too.
It’s all just rather funny in a way. A year and some odd months ago I was iffy about e-readers. I thought I would miss books and now here I am upset over having to send one back. My how the tables have turned!
