"It's not perfect, but it's really, really good!!"5.0 starson by teresa6162
Pros: Easy to use. Allows me to download checked out books from my library (which is the main reason I bought it over the kindle). Size and weight are great - feels very comfortable reading.
Cons: Not really any that are important to the main function of the nook (which is reading books!)
Summary: I got my kindle 2 weeks ago and just returned from a long trip where I read my first 4 books on the nook. I just have to say I'm hooked. I had never considered an e-reader until I discovered I could check out digital books from my public library and download them onto the nook (which you can't do with the kindle). I thought it might be difficult to transition to an e-reader from 'real' books, but after the first couple of chapters, I didn't even notice the difference. It did take me a little while to figure out the easiest way to turn hold the book and turn the pages, but I think everyone will have a different take on what works for them. I have to say that I'm laughing at the reviews that complain about the web interface or the keypad - yes, they are a little slow and clunky, but they serve their purpose and that's not why you buy a nook. I have no trouble at all with the touchpad interface for selecting, buying and reading my books - I find it very easy and intuitive to use.
