Customer Reviews

Great Interaction with Your Library

I really love how the App has been improved throughout the last three years. I came from using a Nook Color to the iPad and with the Nook, there was a lot of interactions (obviously because it was created by Barnes & Nobles for the use with their eBooks), but this App has come a long way since then to match the features. The ability to create shelves, the pairing together books that are within the same series, once you have purchased them.

I would say that to complete my wish list, I would love for the App to tell you when there is another book or books attached to the book you are viewing under a books "Information" and also allow you to purchase it from the App. Also would love for the App to give you under a different section, a list of other books by that author and a list of books from other authors that are similar to the type of book the one you are viewing under "Information" is.

Otherwise, I give thanks to the developers for how far they brought this App and I can't wait for what they do with it in the future.

Great App

I've been reading on Nook for a few years now and love it. I use it on my Mini-iPad when at home or traveling and on my iPhone when waiting for appointments. Easy to change font size and background shading. Current reading page is always offered when reading on multiple devices. Some of the other "reviewers" need to become more educated in using Nook. When preparing for a trip I choose what books I think I might read and make sure the are downloaded. I can them read anytime, with or without WiFi. (I also download any maps I think I'll need as well as translator Apps - not on Nook, but same idea of being prepared for no WiFi). I archive those books I don't need to be active. I can un-archive (a word?) anytime I have WiFi available.

It Gets Even the Small Stuff Right!

When comparing the major e-book readers, Nook still offers you the most customization options and the most relaxing experience. You are allowed to design your own theme, from background screen color, to margins line spacing, and text color. I find this feature absolutely key to limiting eye strain on an electronic device. And, in fact, it makes it a pleasure to read in either low light or bright situations. The nook is not a busy app, it won't flash at you or clock how fast you're reading. And that's exactly what I'm looking for. I want to get totally absorbed in what I'm reading, so real time seems almost suspended. The Nook gives you everything you need to read well, then gets out of your way and LETS you enjoy reading!
