one time i was in Augusta, Ga for 4th of July and the river fest and saw the show. you could stand almost under the explosions. not like NYC where you are like 2 miles from the show

same with Shea Stadium, the old Citi Field. you could get closer to the show than watching the official Macy's fireworks

  i like my kindle app and this one person i know she loves the Nook along with another of my facebook friends. and there is no way you can get me to buy the nook over an ipad mini
