I bought the B&N Nook ebook reader after my dissatisfaction with my previous reader, the Sony PRS-600. I have previously looked at the Amazon Kindle that my sister owns, while it is a very nice reader, I typically shy away from any electronic device that doesn't support industry standard, and in the case of ebook readers, the Amazon Kindle doesn't support the ePub format, so my only other option is the B&N Nook.      After using it for more than 6 months, I am …

I've been very fortunate to have my Barnes and Noble Nook to use for my classes at UCSB. More than half of my required titles were available as ebooks at a drastically discounted rate. Not only that, but I have been able to convert all types of reading files into epub file types that can be read by the Nook. So, I have a lot of class data on the Nook, which is easier to carry around than my laptop. Plus, I can highlight and take notes on it.       It has been two years …

How I feel about the nook:  I love to read using my nook.        The pros: I have had it about 2 months now and I can say that I am reading more now than I did before purchasing the nook.  It is light, reliable, and easy to carry around.  Purchasing books through the wireless 3G is a snap.  Most of the books I purchase and read on it are what I call "give-away books", meaning books I will read once and would not want to keep in my physical library. …

I recently was given a Nook for my birthday, and I absolutely love it. Pros: The screen looks just like real paper, so no eye strain, no matter how many hours you sit there reading. The page turning buttons are placed in a very convenient place, so you don't have to move your whole hand across the screen like you do with the iPad Kindle App. (it was cool at first, but got very annoying and my finger was sore after reading a whole book with that app). …

I recently got a Nook for my birthday, and I LOVE it. The screen is like actual paper- and the side buttons are extremely convenient for page turning without moving your whole hand. I love the touch screen feature at the bottom. All in all, better than the Kindle.

When I went to Barnes and Noble to play with one of these, I planned on purchasing it. But it didn't even work in the store. The samples wouldn't download, half the time the pages wouldn't turn, and the bottom lcd screen seemed off whenever you tried to touch anything. The device looks awesome, but didn't seem to function as promised.
