    • A. No - no backlight on this version of the Nook. The new NookColor does have backlight as it's more along the IPAD format

    • A. It does not have a backlight. Backlight causes strain on your eyes and is not comfortable to read with. You can buy a book light which works great. I bought a Mighty Bright Light from ebay for under $10 and it works great. I also bought my Nook cover off ebay, which is a lot cheaper and cuter options than buying it from Barnes and Noble.

    • A. The Nook uses e-ink technology which means it does not have a back light like an lcd screen. You can see the screen very well in bright sun light but can't see it in the dark. Just like a real book.

    • A. Yes, and you can download them to your Nook through wi-fi. I've went online to Borders and downloaded books and put them on my Nook. Kindle books will not work though, their formats are not supported. go to Feedbook.com, Google books, and EBookStack for more free books.

    • A. Yes, and any book in e-pub format will work on the reader. You may want to consider the 99 cent versions, though, as sometimes they have better navigation through the table of contents of the book. I have found the free ones, through any retailer, occasionally frustrating.

    • A. They have a lot of free titles. They also offer free Fridays, where they offer a free book every Friday. There are a lot of free downloads, you will just have to go through and check to make sure they are worth dowloading. I think I have downloaded over 65 that have been free books.

    I chose this instead of the Kindle for the following reasons: 1. micro-SD chip expandable memory 2. lending feature 3. I can replace the battery myself 4. LCD touch screen at bottom with e-ink for reader is best combination for serious readers as you don't sacrifice much battery life for a little touch, and the touch keyboard is quite easy to use and responsive - it takes the barest touch to advance the page 5. e-pub file format for books 6. page turn buttons (if you don't want to use the touch screen) seem more naturally placed, and you use these buttons a lot I chose an e-reader for the following reasons: 1. large books are no longer cumbersome to carry or read in bed 2. changing the font size at the touch of a screen 3. NYT bestseller e-list starting in the new year, so I am pretty sure any delays in new releases will disappear as well 4. I like gadgets :) I honestly have bought more books since getting the e-reader. When I finish a book, I get another right away. As I live in a rural area, it is much easier to shop this way than to drive almost an hour and a half to get to a decent bookstore.

    I am an avid reader and had been using the Nook app on my iPhone but it was just so small. I did a lot of research to decide which ereader I wanted. I chose the Nook because you can get books from more sites due to the compatibility with Nook. I LOVE my Nook! I know I'll never have to be without a book again. I keep it in my purse. I do recommend getting a cover to keep it from getting scratched up. I found a really nice cover for $30 at Barnes and Noble. I'm kind of wishing I'd splurged for the Nook Color but only cause I use it so much that I could see reading magazines on it which I didn't think I would. But if you are on a budget, this one is great. And unless you need to be able to download books everywhere, save yourself the money and just get the WiFi. I did have an issue with the battery dying too quick but I contacted B & N customer service and they sent me a new battery.

    I am an avid reader, several books a week. I was not sure how I would like an e reader. I liked it so much 2 of my daughters have now purchased their own! So we now own 3 and may purcahse another :) You can buy books from Barnes and Noble (using wireless), christian book, kobo, and even Sony(using usb cord). PLUS you can borrow FREE books from your local library . You can NOT borrow with the kindle or shop anywhere but amazon with the kindle. NOTE you also can NOT shop at amazon the the nook. here is a hint BN doesn't tell you, use the SAME email account for up to 6 nooks in your house. You can then read and share without using the borrow feature.

    Does What It's Meant to Do - Read Books

    What people really need to know is that you need a computer/internet access so you can create a B&N account. You WILL have to provide a credit card/billing information. This is only used if/when you decide to PURCHASE an eBook. Don't let the poor reviews fool you - registration is a snap, you just need to READ the instructions! The big selling point for me is that I can download books from the library and it's compact and can go with me everywhere. I didn't think it necessary to get the 3G version because I have wi-fi at home. When I thought about how often I'd be downloading books and where I'd be when doing so, I realized it'd be when I was home, so why pay the extra $ to have 3G access? It's ridiculous to gripe about no apps, not enough games, etc. If that's what you want, use your computer or buy a tablet. An eReader is meant to read books and with that in mind, the NOOK is very successful. The pages take just a quick second to turn, with slight "ghosting" or flashing of the text, but it's no more than the time it takes to bat an eyelash or turn a page in a normal book. As with anything new, it takes a little time to navigate the different menus, but they are self-explanatory. When you think of how many books you can download in one compact space (at the eBook price, versus hardback), you can't pass this deal up. You'll have bought roughly 5 new release hard cover books for what you're paying for the NOOK, but you're getting so much more in the long run!

    I've had my nook since November and have not been disappointed at all. Did research on the best e-reader to buy and the Nook won. The main reason for buying the Nook was the ability to download e-books from the public library. The books from the library are current ones, so haven't bought a book yet because the public library has tons to download. The Nook is easy to use. The only thing I wished this one had was a backlight for night reading. Reading outside is great with no problems seeing the text. If you buy the Nook, you won't be disappointed!

    I am very happy with the Nook product. Have downloaded books online, reading and adjusting pretty easy. I wish it had more written instructions with the product. I had to do trial and error and then I got online to get more info from Barnes and Noble. This saved me money, and it is very lightweight. I charged it up and it is still going so the battery charge is really lasting well. I may want the color Nook at some point, but this was an excellent way to get started without spending too much and not knowing what you would like in features. You can go where there's wi-fi and sit and read and drink your coffee it's great. I'm so glad I purchased this product and the price was fantastic.

    I chose this e reader because it has Barnes and Nobles stock of books from which to choose. I saw two new books that I would like to read in the New York Times book review. I went directly to my Nook and there they were. It can't get better than this. Plus I enjoy going to my local B&N Bookstore, having a cappuccino and reading any book of my choice for a free hour. I also like the backlight so I can read for a few minutes when I wake up in the night. Enjoy! I bought 1 for me and 2 for gifts.

    I've been looking at ereaders for months now, debating between android tablets or e-ink readers. I knew the kindle was not for me from the start, due to proprietary format and fixed battery. I narrowed my choices down to the nook and the micro velocity cruiz. I chose the nook for the simple interface, and the ease of e-ink for reading. I have an iPod touch for all the other things the android tablet would do. It's easy to use, connects to my local library's e-catalog perfectly, and is easy to carry around for daily errands. A great purchase! Only 1 real con, and it's towards ebooks in general - no kids books. The nook color is attempting to fix this, but at $250, you are better off with an iPad.

    After getting through the start-up process with the help of Barnes & Noble tech support (which was great) I find the Nook to be so convenient to use and am amazed at how easy it is to download new books, etc. I did purchase the 3G wifi because it can be used anywhere. I have taken it with me everywhere and have never had a problem using it. I would highly recommend.

    I purchased the Nook from Barnes and Nobel about 4 months ago. I have been SO happy I did. I read so much more now. I keep the Nook in my purse and can read everywhere. Before I would be carrying around books and they took up so much room. Now I can carry around all of my books. Plus you save money over time becuase the ebooks are cheaper then books! It takes a little bit of time to learn to use. I recommend it to everyone I know. Screen is crisp and clear. One of the best purchases I have ever made.
