Since the new Nook is coming out soon, Barnes & Noble has accessories for the original Nook on sale. Some of the sales are quite generous: Colored back covers, for instance, are 75 percent off in the store, which makes them just $4.74 each.
I've been tempted by the back covers for quite a while, so when we were at B&N on Friday, I succumbed to the temptation and bought one in marine. While I was looking at the shelf, I also happened to see a cover I hadn't seen before, one I like much more than the plain black ones that are common in the store. That was 50 percent off, so I got it for about $20.
You can't see the matching back cover in the picture, but here is my Nook's new look. I do have a thing for blue:
I've been reluctant to get a book-style cover in the past, because it seemed like too much to deal with while reading. The front flap does fold around nicely for one-handed reading, though. The only other complaint I have is that it takes up more room in my purse than the Nook in just a neoprene sleeve.
I went back two days later and bought another back cover in my second color choice, grapefruit. Maybe they'll eventually put out a cover that will match that one too. It'll be fun to have a couple of different colors and covers to rotate between!
