If it weren't for the posts on this board praising the Nook Color, I never would have considered it. Thanks again!
I love reading on my nook color, you do have to feel your way around a bit until you get some setting you enjoy ie brightness , font type and background color. I usually recommend grey background with about 30% brightness to ease your way into it. It's nice.
