3) charge it again up to 100% with the charger ("top it off")

This usually fixed the drain problem.

With the replacement Nook, I have refined this technique to a similar idea, but using the computer instead:

1) charging it to 100%
2) let it sleep over night/ Next morning it might be around 88% (i.e. terrible battery drain)
3) connect it to your computer via USB cable and let it charge again up to 100% (i.e. "top it off")

This has ALWAYS fixed the drain problem for me. After doing this, it only loses about 2 or 3% per day (sleeping or using, no WiFi).
Thanks for the detailed reply RAH,
1) after charging to 100% can you use it to read? Also is it ok to read on it while it charges, in the manual it says that it is alright,but just wondering your experience with it.

or just 2) Let it sleep?

3) connect it to your computer via USB cable and let it charge again up to 100% (i.e. "top it off")
Is the AC charge OK to use?

Thanks again to everyone who tried to help.
