Thanks for posting. I share the same sentiment with one book I'm currently reading. It's to the point where I only want to read it on my NOOK The book displays the same on the Kobo and the NOOK, yet I don't have a problem with the NOOK recognizing my finger on the link. It picks it up on the first try.

If I do manage to select the endnote link correctly, it works - but I can manage it about one time in 10. The rest of the time my tap either turns the page or calls up the page bottom menu.

I would guess that this problem is partly due to publishers not having had a chance to consider the implications of touch-screen e-readers compared to cursoring through the page directly from one endnote marker to another by button presses. They could make the endnote links bigger. But until then, is there something that could be done in the firmware to make this more practical?
