    nook copy COMPARED to hard copy

    When I was comparing the hard copy to the nook copy I noticed it was missing some very IMPORTANT info the directions part!

    For example...when I was reading about the museums in the hard copy at the bottom of each paragraph it told me what subway line to take the address and the streets it is in between...

    NOT ON NOOK! all of that was missing! at least it was in the sample version of the nook...but I don’t see why that would change when I bought it.

    Word to the publisher....only make Nook versions when they are accurate and contain the same info!
