I have a new syndrome (ailment) to report—Nook Color Thumb.
Nook in its cover:
Nook with cover open and folded back:
I hold it like this so that I don’t accidently cause the pages to flip when I don’t want them to flip.
My hand with fingers in normal position:
Note the position of the thumb. It is drawn up against the forefinger and won’t move. After massaging it a bit, the cramp-like sensation disappears allowing the thumb to move again. If I again hold the Reader, the thumb and parts of the hand cramp again.
I wonder if this will be recognized by the powers that be as a legitimate syndrome. I would like it to be known as Lucy’s Nook Thumb Syndrome. I’ll be famous!
Hmmm. . .My 7” tablet doesn’t cause me this problem. Of course, the tablet is less weighty.
