Once I was tutored by my kids on how to use all the features, it has become a delight.
I am a reader, but it has dropped off, now I leave it in my truck, and everywhere I go, I have my books, the web, my email, mps player, chess player, checkers, backgammon, bowling. All my reference materials, and anytime I hear of a good book, I can download it instantly and have a 1000 books at my disposal. Its great, and a good battery life and a great screen.
And if you actually go into a barnes and noble, you can read any book thats in nook form, for an hour a sitting. Its great when I go to the shop to buy a book, and they are out of stock, I can just download and read for an hour, and then come back another time and finish the book.
With a good case and taxes and everything its about 300 dollars.
Much regards Jerry
