    Technical difficulties

    I bought this for nook before (duh) going on a trip to Norway. However, it wouldn't load onto the nook, and when I called customer service (an hour before going to the airport) they were unable to help me. It was too late to do anything about it, so because of this I had to go without a guidebook. The experience convinced me that I was wrong to choose nook for my e-reader, and I will be selling it.
