    The sample doesn´t work on Nook Color

    I am interested in this book, but I don´t want to risk buying it, because the sample doesn´t work. This is the second time in a week I have problems (a couple of days ago: The Economist). If the Nook Color continues to fail so often, I will have to consider seriously rooting it like so many people have already done.
