I went out to the grocery store. I didn't get anything perishable. I went to a Staples, and got another $15 e-reader cover. The ones meant specifically for a Kindle were $40. The one I got worked for the Kindle Touch, the Kobo Touch, and the basic Kindle, so it said. I went to Barnes & Noble. They were having a sale on Nook covers. Dad takes the pink cover off my Nook when he uses it, so I got a black "industriell" cover. That cover was $10. Now I have sufficiently manly-looking covers for all the e-readers.
I looked at the e-readers themselves. The Simple Touch is $60 now, and this year's Nook with Glowlight is $119. I talked to D., who teaches some of the Intro to Nook classes. She said Dad should get a Nook of his own, since he's been reading mine. I had been thinking that I should get him a Nook of his own.
I went to Best Buy, to look there. The Kindle was $119. I assume that was this year's. They had a sale on Nooks. The Simple Touch was $40 and the Nook with Glowlight was $60. I asked the associate if the Nook with Glowlight was last year's. He said it was newer than the Simple Touch, but that it wasn't this year's. I decided to get it. I really like the one I have, and that one was the same model. That way I don't have to go find mine in among Dad's stuff.
Later: I organized the Nook books I had onto shelves on the new Nook, and side-loaded a bunch of books. I organized them all onto the shelves.
I read the latest chapter of Shandyall's historical AU. I wrote to her about it. I'm enjoying it. It jumps around in time, so I'll be able to appreciate it fully when it's done, but I like what I've read so far.
Later still: Mom and I watched "Bad Reputation" and "Laryngitis." She asked if that was it for the first season, and I told her that there were still four more episodes. I said maybe we could watch them over the weekend.
