Here's a quick update for all of our Nook reader fans out there (and based on the statistics we're seeing, you know who you are!)
If you let your Nook's battery drain down to the point where it prompts you to plug it in, when it comes back up, it loses your place in the book you're reading....
Which means you can't hit "Go to" -> "Furthest read point" !
Instead it dumps you right back at the start of the book. How annoying is that? (okay, in the real world of the ink stained dead tree analogs we're used to holding on to, of course we're always staring down the covers....but that's what the bookmark solves for us)
I just spent about 10 minutes bouncing around trying to jump to chapter heads in Snow Crash to figure out where I was.
The best way around it is to periodically go back to the main menu and then forward again with the "reading now" button. Or use the "Bookmarks" -> "Add Bookmark" (assuming it doesn't lose those as well?!? I'll try that next, let the power drain down again and see if it holds the bookmarks, unless someone else already knows and can post an update in the comments for us)
Overall I'm still pretty happy with the device. What do you think of it so far?
