A Versatile Guide for a Versatile eReader

I received the Nook Color as an early Christmas present. This little gadget is my first eReader. After perusing some of the readers out there, I decided to ask for it because it is the first full-color eReader. After playing with it for even a few hours, I loved it, as it is fast and stable. I even tried a few picture books and my kids enjoyed them very much. Since I am not particularly tech savvy, I wanted to see how I could get the most out of my new reader. I especially wanted to find out how to take notes and highlight passages. Since this is the only Nook Color guide currently in the B&N store, I thought I'd give it a shot.
 
I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to find information, and the organization is what I loved most about this book. One click and I was in the chapter that told me, clearly and without any jargon how to take notes while reading. That is when I became curious about other useful tips I could learn. In the Music and Games chapter, I learned about listening to music and playing Sudoku, one of my favorites, right on my Nook Color. Finally, the Free Books chapter helped to save a few bucks and find the same great literature.
 
Admittedly, some of the sections in the book, like editing advanced settings, are for more advanced users. However, this is great since I will maybe be one of those users one day and these additional tips will come in handy. Overall, I would recommend this guide to beginners to learn a whole lot about the Nook Color and eReaders in general, and anyone looking to learn a little extra if they have used eReaders before.
