The screen is easy to read in sunlight, room light, shadow and even the dark. The glow light really does a good job. I found text clear and readable with the background looking very paperlike.
Swiping is easy and the page turns quick enough for me as I prefer a relaxed reading rate. Library surfing and book opening are ok for me but I recon they may not be fast enough for all.
Menus and choices are simple and basic as is the layout. Once again ok for me as I am happy with the defaults and simple is fine as all I want to do is read books on the device.
You can hack the Nook to acces the web, e-mail and so, all in black and white. I may have a hack as I read you can install an app that gives deep black sharp text. Would be interesting to see if readability is improved and reading e-mails on the hoof could be fun.
Bought a neat black imitation leather case with a neat magnetic clasp which holds the thing shut and allows you to fully open the cover and hold it open with the magnet. Small neat and at a standard paperback weight this is probably my best buy of the year.
Cover £4.99 inc ship'
Already read two magazines, one book and started another along with a pdf book on the command line. Reading techy stuff was a major part of buying the Nook. Having the ability to read info separate from the pc will be invaluable.
