Hooked on the Nook

Being a lifelong bookworm I loved the feel of "real" hard copy books in my hand. I swore that I would buy only "real" books - ever. Was I wrong ! When I realized that "real" books were starting to take over the house - I gingerly stepped into the electronic new age via Nook. Now I'm hooked ! What an amazing reading experience ! The buys and downloads are fast, the font sizes selection and color background choices are good - except for the deletion of sepia. Please bring sepia back. Ability to access additional info when key words are highlighted, the ability to highlight key words and passages plus make notes - features that work flawlessly. All in all, a seamless reading experience. Now 99% of my books are read via Nook, either on my iPad or Nook Glow Light. The remaining 1% hard copy are the few books that would have some lasting value for me, or books intended for gifts. Now I can read anywhere, having an inexhaustible library at hand. And (big plus ! ) I can read late into the night without using the bedside light that so annoyed my spouse (: and my arm doesn't get heavy trying to hold up a book while reclining ! What's not to love ? !

Just a bit of advice!

I originally had the Nook. What I miss that this doesn't have is Bookshelves! ANYONE who reads books, reads series. With this app we have no way of seeing our series properly, quickly, & IN CORRECT READING ORDER! To do that I have to go to another app or go on the web.
Also please fix the problems I & everyone else suffer from....if u do that & add the Bookshelves you'll have a proper functioning app.
-Force close of books.
-Having to repeatedly sync.
-Promoting to a page older than the current one your on.
-Not cataloging all the books in the series.
-Problems w/downloading.
-Having to download repeatedly.
Your not spending enough time w/your apps for nook, & if you don't START spending more time on them & putting more man power, money into fixing the problems, your going to lose A LOT MORE money from people being sick & tired of these issues & leaving.
(Just a bit of advice. Business person to business person.)

My nook experience

Nook is fantastic, the color, the many apps, you can switch from magazines to. Books to movies to music to internet browsing, the possibilities are endless and I have not used them all yet. Mainly I read and watch movies. I have 2 complaints: it has crashed several times and many times when you gat a book sample and later buy the book, it continues showing just the sample for some time until finally it updates itself to the whole book.
All things considered I love my nook and will continue enjoying it 100%
