I have bought a lot of Dickens eBooks out there for the Nook, but this is by far the best. Not only does it include all of the illustrations to the novels, but it also has a large number of additional books, including biographies, sequels to novels and literary criticism on the great man. For a true Dickensian, this has to be the perfect eBook. Highly recommended buy. Delphi's Hardy eBook is almost as good too.
