And I looked at a "real" (as opposed to an "app") Nook last Thursday, and it
doesn't show a dog-eared page.
I wonder if the code for a small "dog-ear" is less cumbersome than any other
kind of "bookmark"? How about a thin vertical line with
written in it?
Or how about letting different people using the device put their own names
Does that take up more space than a dog-eared corner?

The Ipad Kindle ap puts a little bookmark on the corner. I just thought to
Folks, I had to buy a new car, and it needed a smartphone to make
everything in the car be available to me, so I ditched my old trusty
flip phone and bought a Droid X. [And sorta regret it. My old flip phone did
everything I *needed* it to do -- make phone calls.]
I downloaded both Kindle's and Nook's apps, since we're working towards
circulating them in the library. Both machines show a bookmark as a
turned down corner of a page.
We librarians have been trying for over a hundred years to convince
people NOT to turn down those corners.
Does anyone see any reason why Amazon and Barnes & Noble chose a
librarian's anathema to mark a page? I plan to write them letters.
