to root or not...

NookColor...

What are the drawbacks to rooting (minus the warranty issue and the possibility of bricking it)?

So far, I see only that I cannot purchase books directly from the device. Is that true? In that case, I could purchase them on the web and then will they download to the device or would I have to copy them over manually?

Why would I have to have a gmail account for the process?

Thanks,
John
