I got my nook a month ago, and, I love it! Now, I'm looking to give a more interesting look, to pretty-fy it, and make it my own, and with these cool skins at Amazon, I'll be able to do that. I hesitated on getting a skin, because I wanted a case, too, and thought it didn't make sense to hide the skin in a case, but BN has a case just covers the front, so I can still show off the cool design. I love the way these look, and can't wait to get mine in the mail! By the way, I chose the Aqua. Which do you like best?
