Hi .. thank you for your post (and welcome).

Yes, I was wondering about that. Might be worth driving to a different Target for the next exchange on the off-chance that this might be it.

Or, I have another theory. I wonder if you have the older firmware. You can check under Settings > Device Info > About Your Nook. It will tell you the software version. The current version is 1.2.0. I think it was 1.1.0 that fixed significant issues with ghosting and fonts. I would recommend that you update the firmware to the latest version and then see how it looks.
Already tried that (I'm a computer scientists, so the inner nerd in me looked for this possibility right away ) but it didn't help (good suggestion though).

I also recently got my first tablet (Nexus 7), but I really like the Nook for its simplicity and single purpose and would much prefer reading on it without any distractions - I favor minimalism. So I really want to this to work out badly. If I could secretly swap screens between the new one and the one from the public library (which is used of course) I'd do it

Hopefully exchanging it at a different Target will help - otherwise I'm not sure how to proceed.
