Nook STglow, does it have reflow?

Trying to decide between going back to a sony reader(orig. was a 505) or goin with the nook glow. Am reading different things about it and just wondering if it. Has the reflow/resize option thanks!

By reflow i mean when i zoom, it resizes the font and page count like the sony did instead of 'panning' the screen like the kobo does.

I think they are referring to viewing PDFs on the NSTglow.

As I avoid PDFs on ereader like the plague ( they weren't designed for small screens etc etc etc ) I can't help you with how it handles them.

Hopefully someone else will come along and let you know tho =)

Hope you get the answer your looking for.

It does have PDF reflow, for what that is worth. But no landscape, zoom/pan.

For PDF's the Nook Simple Touch and Glowlight has basic reflow which works well with single column text only PDFs. It has 6 font sizes to pick from and sizes 2 or 3 are more than adequate to read, in fact 3 is a bit big. This YT video explains it well in the first few minutes.
