I searched and didn't find the answer to my question. Hopefully it isn't a repeat. I was talking to a girl at work and she mentioned that she wanted a Nook tablet. I said that I would like a Kindle Fire. She said that she had looked at both and she talked to someone at a Barnes and Noble store and they told her that to read a book on the Kindle Fire, she had to be on the internet. Something about that cloud thing. Is this true? I am rarely near WiFi when I read my Nook so I just can't understand why anyone would even want it if this was the case. I know that there are many of you that already have the Kindle Fire and would know the answer. Thanks!
