nook simple touchI wonder if my Nook Simple Touch will become a collector’s item.

Most likely, it will just be exactly what it is now – a gadget collecting dust with the battery killed off long ago.

I haven’t used my NST in months, maybe even a year. So, it was not surprising when I read on The Digital Reader that Barnes & Noble discontinued the Nook Touch.

I didn’t have any major issues with my NST, but once I got my Google Nexus 7 two summers ago, it became my little computer away from my laptop, including an e-reader, RSS reader, Candy Crusher, Facebook updater, and so much more.

All I did on my NST was read. Just read.

That doesn’t mean I have stopped using Barnes & Noble to get ebooks. I use their e-reader app on my Nexus occasionally. However, I have found myself using Kindle or Moon + Reader far more often.

Maybe even the B&N app could be a collector’s item someday too.
