I got an email from Barnes & Noble, offering a deal on their Nook electronic book reader. Given that I use the free Amazon Kindle software on my iPod Touch, I can't really see buying a separate e-reader. But I wondered about the opportunity to try out the Nook (the screen on the Touch is pretty small).
So I checked out the return policy from Barnes & Noble, and found this rule:
You can return nook within 14 days of receipt. Either call 1-800-THE-BOOK (843-2665) for a return authorization, or return it to a Barnes & Noble store.
Wow. Look at that language in red -- pretty harsh. I would double-check that address before sending one back.
Please note: if you do not call for a return authorization number and send the nook to the wrong return center, no refund will be provided and your nook will not be returned to you.
