    This book DOES load on to an IPad as well as all other forms of the Nook app. I'm looking forward to learning about clay and adding it to my lampwork beads/jewlery.

    The book looks good. I've not had a chance to do anything with metal clay yet, but the book sure is inspiring me to get organized for it. The illustrations are clear, the directions seem to be complete enough, and there are quite a few very interesting looking projects. This book only talks about PMC brand clay; I believe there are other brands, but I don't know if the instructions would need to change based on the composition of the other brands. The projects are designed for a kiln, not a torch or a stove-top method.

    That said, even as much as I love e-books, I do not recommend the Nook version of this book. Get a print copy. I think Kalmbach has made a mistake in hooking up with Barnes and Noble. This Nook book requires Nook Study, which is a special version of Nook that can only be used on the PC or Mac. It might be readable on a Nook device, but I don't know. It CANNOT be read on any ordinary Android or iOS tablet because B&N has not made versions of Nook Study that will run on either of those operating systems. All in all, not nearly as flexible as a either a PDF file or a Kindle book, which will run on any tablet as well as any PC or Mac.
