I am forcing myself to read on it for a couple weeks, to give it a proper chance. And it's certainly acceptable - I still like eReading even with the Nook. But IMHO the current Sony readers are nicer.
My partner also started with the Nook and as you could not get into the hard page swipes. He ended by selling the Nook and getting a 950. He's much happier now with the Sony.
