Ghostly

There was a joke running around where America was asked about the rest of the world and replied, "What is the 'rest of the world'?"

Well in the case of the NOOK you can not use it in the rest of the world even though you can buy a NOOK in the rest of the world.

After you try to download an e-book to run on the NOOK, and after you have given your credit card details, the checkout page informs you that a US billing address is required to register your NOOK device and to make purchases.

You can only make purchases from the rest of the world if you have both a US billing address and a US based Credit Card.

Be warned!

PS the joke in full was:
... a world-wide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was:
"Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

The survey was a failure because of the following:
In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant.
In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant.
In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant.
In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant.
In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant.
In South America they didn't know what "please" meant.
In the US they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.
In Australia, they hung up, because they couldn't understand the Indian accent.
