"A great step up for the e-book industry!"5.0 starson by sjohnson011
Pros: Very lightweight. The original model (white) felt light, but started digging into my fingers after holding it for a while. This one is easily half the weight, or so it feels.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Summary: I often hear people ask "How many people read in the dark?" The answer is, more than you think.
People read on planes, in cars, in beds, and in other dim places that need a little light. This Nook can provide that light without having to turn on overhead lamps and disturb the people nearby.
I also like that it's just a simple reader. I don't need a browser and an audio player and a Sudoku puzzle generator and other assorted features. I use my reader to read.
I don't want my reader to have an identity crisis. I like that it's simple. If you want a tablet, buy a tablet. But if you want a reader, buy this Nook.
