Not as good as Consumer Reports led me to believe....
9 August 2012
Summary: Bought this for my sister who is homebound and loves to read. Very challenging to both load with options to be able to buy books as well as read books once loaded. Drops the connection, pages do not turn the way they show on TV. ebooks cost more than expected, so not that much of a savings financially after factor in the cost of the Nook. Requires credit card acct with Barnes and Noble.
Summary: Two points only: 1) The ereader device is wonderful 2) DO NOT purchase ebooks from B&N as they contain additional security restrictions that make it extremely difficult / not possible to compile into Adobe Digital Edition for transfer to other ereader devices. This is not true for ebook stores such as the Sony ebook store.
Summary: I love reading books and i have to pay quite large amount of money for buying books, so i bought this Nook. However, my mother tone is not English then i had to deal with a big problem when i tried to convert from .prc to .pdf or .epub format while the Kindle ebook readers seem less face with that kind of problem.
