type size. It's been several months, and it hasn't happened yeI bought this book after hearing the author on the radio. He has a riveting story of his life as a black man in pre civil rights America. The book appears to be well written. I say "appears" because I have read very little of it. Why? Because the book loaded onto my Nook in their very smallest type, and cannot be enlarged. I have contacted both Barnes & Noble on line, and my local Barnes & Noble bookstore. They tell me that there is a glitch in the code written by the publisher. I'm told to move the book into the "cloud" and back again, and one of these days when I do that, it will come back with adjustable type. It's been several months, and it hasn't happened yet. In the meantime, the only option is to use a magnifying glass with my Nook. I tried that, and it isn't working for me. Or, I could buy a bound copy. No refunds on defective Nook books, by the way.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I am sure this is no doubt a good book unfortunatly it is unreadable on a nook the print is so small you cant read it and you can not re-size it. If you want to read this book buy it in paper or buy yorself magnifiers. Save your mony don't buy it in nook format.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
