    Reading is a problem with the sample PerfectPage indeed.

    I cannot read the pages on my Nook Color due to the removal of the text resize option (of the sample). I am not sure how the main title would be, but without that feature, and in PerfectPage format, it is impractical to even attempt to read it in NOOK format. A real sales killer for Kevin Zraly and Sterling!
