Being from Canada, I needed an eReader that will work with our public libraries. Therefore, I took a look at the list of eReaders compatible with the eBooks at my local library. Barnes & Noble Nook is compatible. It is great for reading eBooks, but very poor when reading magazines. Magazines are too large to fit on the 7" screen. Therefore, I had to scroll around the page to look at the different parts of the magazine. Downloaded books are not visible in the library tab on the Nook. Therefore, I have to do a search for the book in the Nook in order to find it. Doing a search for the author is enough. The only drawback I can see is the EPUB software. It took me a while to figure out how to get eBooks onto the Nook. Books must be transferred from a computer to the Nook. Transferring books through the Nook's Wi-Fi will not work. Therefore, understanding how to use Adobe's Digital Editions software on the computer will make reading eBooks more enjoyable. Wi-Fi works as expected. The number of apps is not as large as Apple's. Furthermore, apps must be purchased from the B&N store. There are probably ways to get other Android apps working on the Nook, but I have not done this since I use it primarily to read eBooks and newspapers online.
