    I have a Nook, but only once have I seen a book that was compatible with it that my school uses.

    I also sell them back at the end of the semester and usually break even.

    I also will not own any apple products outside of my 5 year old ipod. iPad's are way overpriced, especially what I would use it for.

    The reason I got the Nook was because it was the only one out that was color at the time. Like a month after I bought it, they released the Fire:sad2:

    The way Amazon works with 3rd party sellers now, it's very possible your books did ship and the seller didn't perform the subsequent notification process. Many times the items will arrive now before the item is even billed or tracking provided. Don't be surprised if your stuff just shows up..
    Of course if you chose "fulfilled by Amazon" this would not be the case.

    You know what sucks, getting your car emissions tested. Yawn.
