A temporary medical condition, characterized by restlessness, irritability, and a lost-in-space appearance, resulting from a prolific reader's Nook (or similar ebook reader) needing to be charged. The symptoms are particularly pronounced during extended car or plane trips.
Just as my wife was getting to the end of the new Patricia Cornwell novel, her Nook had to be charged. I had to put up with 3 hours of a complete Nookatine fit.
