I've only had it for two days, should I bring it back?

Well, I had similar high battery usage, but then I found a great solution: I rooted my Nook and use another ereader program (NOT B&N) to read. As an example, I last charged up my Nook 7 days ago. I read with it 3-5 hours a day (during lunch and after the kids have gone to bed). I am still at 74% battery life. I used to not get a week between charges with the B&N software.

The B&N software is still there, and I can use it if I like, but I really don't have a reason to.
