I researched every offering of E-readers on the market from Kindle from Amazon to Sony to Kobo from Borders before purchasing. Well, I've had my NOOK for almost 3 months now (purchased through Best Buy before Walmart offered it) and I love it. With room for 1500 books and more if using expandable memory, there's never a want for something to read. The size is smaller than any hardcover book and it's as thin as a magazine, making it easier to carry in a purse or even the glove compartment of a car. I love the 3g which allows me to go to the B&N website anytime I need a new book to read (punch 0.00 into the search engine on the site and you come up with a long list of their free offerings) and it's great that I can hook it up to the computer and get great classics from Gutenberg or my local library. To be honest, I have yet to try the wi-fi function as I live in an area without it but I bet it'll be as great as everything else.

I bought mine about a month ago and I love it. I done all the research and went back and forth between the Nook and the Kindle. I am very happy with my choice. With this I can not only buy books, but I can borrow books from the library. Also every Friday Barnes and Noble has Free Friday's where they give away a free download. They have a lot more free books than I thought they would. You just have to look through and find the one's that are worth downloading. I love this so much, I hardly ever use paperbooks anymore. I prefer reading with this. Also if you know somebody else that has a nook, if you buy the lendable books, you are able to lend your books to eachother. I thought that was a cool feature, although I don't know anybody else with a nook, so I have not used that option yet. They are going to have another large update some time this November. They are promising even faster page turns. I don't really think that is neccessary, but I have seen some people complain on the forums about the page turns. Honestly, this is a wonderful product and if you love to read, you will love this reader. It is well worth the money.

My fiance purchased this for me for my Christmas present this year (2010). I am in love with this product. I am an avid reader and was really uncertain at wether I would enjoy this product. Because face there is just something about holding a book in your hand. Smelling the scent. Feeling the pages as you turn them. Its almost addictive. So I wasn't really sure if I would enjoy it as much as a paperback. But I was suprised at how easy it is to get accustomed to. The e ink technology makes it easy to read, just like the pages of a book. There is no backgound light on the screen so it isn't as straining to the eyes as if reading on a computer. Although you will have to use a light to read in the dark we all have had to do it before ereaders ever existed. Definately worth the price. Especially since I have run out of room for physical books! The 3g works fairly well. Haven't had too much problem with it. I do live out in the middle of nowhere. We don't have high speed internet where I live and it still gets reception to search and downloads ebooks!

I was extremely excited to get my new Nook. I have used a Sony ereader for the past year and wanted to switch to the Nook because of the affordable 3G. I chose the Nook because it uses the same file format that Sony uses (epub) and I have an extensive library that I've purchased over the past year that I still wanted to use. It's true that both devices use the same file format, but I could not transfer the files to my new nook. Due to copyright laws, the ebook has to be "authorized" by the store where you purchased the book to be allowed to "read" that book. The Sony store would not recognize or authorize the Nook because it was a different name brand. I could use a conversion program to change all of my files into pdf's but they would not be as legible and it is a time consuming process since I own over 150 books. In short, I returned my Nook and was forced to buy another Sony book so that I would not lose my library. If this had been my first ebook and I didn't already have a library established I would have loved the Nook.

I've had this product for nearly a year. If you do not turn OFF the wifi/3G and you live in an area with sketchy service, it will very quickly run down your battery, so I leave mine off till I need it. Also, once your battery dies, it takes awhile of being plugged into the wall to begin to recharge. It's frozen on me ONCE and that was a couple of days after I got it. I think I did something, but not sure what. Power off/on worked to fix it. I have had no issues with this, had no problems, and I buy books, put my school .pdf files on it, I've uploaded my own photos to use as backgrounds, I have used every feature multiple times. That said, for anyone NOT tech savvy, it may be harder for you to navigate some quirks like the battery issue. The Nook forum boards were filled with answers, so be sure you google them and read them before you decide what to do with the nook. Additionally, I put my nook in padded places all the time. There are reports of the side buttons cracking and I have never had that problem. I think it takes care and not just tossing it unprotected in a bag with school books and stuff. All in all, this has been one of my favorite electronic purchases of all time. I can honestly say I use it daily and have felt it truly worth the money.

  • A. Nope! Its all free. I suppose its because it doesnt take much to download a book. The usage is probably so negligible as to not warrant an actual account. Probably cost more for ATT to bill the account than actually is being used.

  • A. You will have to check their formats. The Nook will use the following; ,EPUB (including Non or Adobe DRM), PDB, PDF. Not Supported: DOC, LIT, TXT, AMZ (Amazon), LRZ/LRX (Sony). You can get books form other sources such as Googlebooks, Borders and hopefully Walmart one day. I have a lot of free ebooks I got from other places than B&N.

  • A. You can download books from your local library - I do that all the time - Love that feature of the Nook. Plus you don't have to worry about returning them to the library once you lending period is up - you can no longer access the file on your Nook so you just delete it and that's it.

  • A. Because it allows for both PDF and the universal EPUB formats to be used on the device, you can download ebooks from pretty much anywhere you see fit. While I do love Barnes and Noble, I can't always afford a new book so it's nice that I can visit the library so to speak.

  • A. Older titles like H G Wells for example may start at .99 cents. New titles can be around $5 or $6 up to $15! Once you purchase the book, it's yours to keep forever like a real book. I recommend that you back up the book on your computer, SD Card, or Jump Drive. That way you will always have it in case of the worst possible scenario.

  • A. Actually once you purchase the book - that's it - there is no additional cost to download the book. The average cost depends on the publisher - most books I've purchased have been in the $6.00 range but it varies - if it's a new release (Hardback) they can be $9.99 to $15.99 still cheaper than buying in stores. Paperback new releases tend to range from $6.39 - $7.99. There are also free books - books for under $5.00 - it just depends on your reading preference some books are cheaper then others

  • A. The cost is about the same as buying an actual "book". You can keep the book in your system, but if you ever buy a different "type" of system for example Sony, etc. you cannot transfer it to that system due to copyright laws. You are not actually buying the book, you are buying the rights to use that book. The ebook has to be "authorized" to read that book.

  • A. Lots of books cost 9.99, but there are many free books if you love those classics in the public domain. If you want textbooks, well, they cost like textbooks cost, only a little less. When you are finished reading, you can archive the book in your archive (your Barnes and Noble account will keep all books for you, but you can archive the ones you dont want in your current library). If you have a Nook of some form, you can keep a copy on your Nook. But a copy also always resides on the account in the cloud. So you can read whatever you are reading from your phone if you have a nook app, or from your PC of you have the PC nook app, or from your ipad, if you have the nook app. It even keeps your place, right there in the cloud, so you dont have to start over when you go from one device to the other.

  • A. B&N offers a wonderful selection of free ebooks that are usually shorter reads. If looking for a new release, they can run anywhere from $9.99 to $12.99 while numerous others are around the $5-7 range. The books you purchase (even the free ones) are yours to keep for as long as you want them, just like a paperback would be. However, the beauty of the NOOK is that you can hook it up to your computer and get books through most local libraries on their websites. These books do have to be returned and the procedure to do so is shown on the library's guidelines.
