What you don't get? :-) ... the Nook Color's battery life is bad.
For a normal ereader user, 5 to 6 hours is a big inconvenient. Imagine yourself in a airplane travel from LA to Paris, without including airport wait. Or ... you are in a nice beach in Puerto Rico or Mexico, you got there after a 2 hrs trip in a car. It is certainly and inconvenient.
You can be happy with 30 min, but it is not a lot of time.
