TOPIC: My Nook Impressions (so far)

My Nook Impressions (so far) 7 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 0
After only a few days with the Nook, I am happy to report that the speed of the Nook seems fine to me. I had been reading a lot of horror stories about slowness. Either they were fixed with the update or I'm easily pleased. I have downloaded several hundred free epub books and they display perfectly.

Things that should be improved: Every time I go to View My Documents, the Nook does a "Checking for new items" process. This happens EVERY TIME and is very irritating, especially if has only been a short time since the previous instance. The nook should ASK if we want to check new items....simple.

The other 'biggy' I see is that the Nook does not provide for a search of books in the My Documents area. I can have all kinds of personal documents of various file types, but if I can't find them easily, what good is it? The Nook can have 1500 books. Can you imagine manually looking through hundreds of files trying to find the one you need. Well you don't have to imagine it, cause that's what you have to do.

Come on Nook! Get with the program!!

You can use it while it is charging. They charge them at the factory, so the first charge probably won't take 3 1/2 hrs. Mine took less than 1 1/2 using the wall charger. Enjoy!

I'm absolutely loving my Nook! Just got back from a plane trip out of state to visit family, and I'm very impressed. My battery was still over 3/4 full when I got home, but note that I did have Wifi off and airplane mode on the whole time. I had no trouble reading the screen during the entire flight, no eyestrain.

I didn't shut it down, but put it to sleep and surprised my son and DIL that I had their pics loaded as screen savers! And it was really nice to be able to pick it up off the table while I was at their place and read a couple chapters when there was a chance.

Never attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity.

I agree. I find it no harder to pick it up and sneak in a quick read than a book. It's easier because I don't have to hunt for the book and the bookmarking is automatic. My family thinks it's funny but it's so efficient!
