I'm keeping my NookColor for just the subscription to Nat'l Geo alone because it is such a stunning job they did on that.

But it's quirky and the keyboard is almost unuseable for email replies because it's outrageously over-sensitive.

The web is fast though, for reading ... but that Nat'l Geo - I read that it's much more flexible and capable than the Zinio edition. At the resolution of the B&N, it's hard to beat. Makes the print version look drab and the paper print too light for comfort. Pinch zooming works well, and the Article Mode is easy to read too.

I don't plan to put hundreds of books on it - am using my Kindle most of my book reading (easier on my eyes). I have the NookColor brightness turned down to between 3-5% and I use Sepia mostly for the background color and it's really not bad. But the Kindle is a relief to get back to for the longer-form reading.
