I LOVE my Nook. I bought it last year for a trip to Africa. Battery life is excellent... NYC to London, brief recharge. London to Johannesburg, no problem. I bought a new camera for that trip too and downloaded the PDF manual to the Nook. Perfect!
The e-ink screen along with increasing font size make e-reading really comfortable for long periods of time. Not the case for me on any computer screen or the iPad. My eyes start to tear and get very tired with the reflective screens. If you're looking for a fabulous cover, check out http://www.oberondesign.com. Beautiful and sturdy leather covers. Hey, Nook owners, today's Free Friday!!!
