    Nook Version eh!

    I don't know what the real book looks like, but the Nook version is hardly any text and tiny (really) postage size photos that can't be enlarged. I do regret purchasing this book. Would not recommend the Nook version.

    Would give it zero if I could. Should be removed.

    Only thumbnail pics you can't even read, no description. Nothing. Keeps force closing, totally worthless.
