Highly Recommended-no recycling!

It's been great downloading it to my Nook by 8:00 AM, even during a major blizzard. I just have to get used to navigating it. I love not having to recycle. I canceled my paper delivery after 3 days and it costs half as much. No more dirty, inky hands or having the paper...

I canceled my paper delivery after 3 days and it costs half as much. No more dirty, inky hands or having the paper falling on the floor getting to the rest of the article. You have to make sure you click on "new content" so it downloads. I love it.

NYT - Delivery is unreliable, Navigation is difficult

I do like the New York Times..but delivery via the Nook is not ready for prime time. About one third of the time it never arrives. Additionally, navigation around those deliveries that do make it through is difficult and obtuse.
Would not recommend subscribing at this ...

    Great for Regular Nook

    I was a little dubious about subscribing to this paper after reading these reviews. It seemed like people with NookColor liked the product only okay, and I couldn't get a real sense of whether people with regular Nooks liked it. Thank goodness for the 14 free trial days. That is why I gave the paper a chance, and I'm so glad I did.

    FYI: I truly didn't get charged until 14 days later.

    This paper is so easy to read on my B&W Nook. No fussing with the unruly paper edition while trying to drink your coffee. No need to put your subscription on hold if you go out of town. I really like the format, too. You can skip to different sections using the touch pad. You can scroll through the articles titles (complete with mini-synopsis an picture) until you find one you'd like to read through. Not to mention all the trees you'll save! Totally worth the $20.

    I'd recommend this to anyone. And if you have a regular Nook, rest assured that you will enjoy this product just as much as anyone with a NookColor--perhaps even more!

    B&N I commend You

    When I got my nook, I was thrilled that the Times were going to be able to come to me. It is not only better for the environment, but it is more convenient. I think that this uproar about the crosswords being missing is insane considering they told us upfront and if that is the goal of getting the Times, I know the problem with American society.

    If you're frustrated it's not delivering on time!

    If the NYT is not automatically downloaded to your Nook in the morning, click on My Library and then click Check for new B&N content. This works for me every time there is a late delivery issue. I had been so frustrated until I found this. Now I have zero complaints - no recyling, always available, no ink on fingers. It's great.

    High Recommendation

    I find it great to read on the Nook Color. I hate to see newspapers go away but this is great on the nook - I can scan all the content and I find I read more than I usually do with the newsprint.

    This is perfect

    I can't imagine giving this anything but a 5-star rating. The paper is delivered daily. It is very easy to navigate and read. It's just terrific. Now whether one always agrees with content is another issue, but this is part of what freedom of the press is all about - a great discussion and debate.

    Great content, moving around a bit cumbersome

    The content is great and downloading is always accomplished flawlessly. A magazine style layout would make a great difference navegating. Overall very satisfied, there is no question The New York Times is a great newspaper.

    Way cool!

    We love the NYT and this is a great way to read it. The print on the device is high quality and easy to read. What we cannot figure out is where is the New York Times Magazine?

    People are so allergic to change

    Contrary to what most people are saying to the new format, I happen to like the new changes to the newspaper. It really looks good.

    New changes are fantastic!

    The NY Times on Nook hit a grand slam with the new changes. I love being able to see the images and layout of the print edition with such fine detail! Thank you for redesigning this app!

    I often hear of the quality of the reporting from the Times. Having now read the paper for several months, I know why. The variety of subject areas caugh my attention and the depth of the reporting impressed me.
