    WOW! Incredible!

    This is what reading a magazine on an eReader is all about. Sure it takes up a lot of memory, but who cares? If you are reading NatGeo it is all about the pictures and they are just stunning, so spend a few bucks on a microSD if you are all worried about memory and enjoy! My lovely wife clued me in about NatGeo, so now we BOTH have a subscription, I am not waiting for her to share, nope.

    As for those folks with iPads complaining: it clearly states in the description that this magazine is for the Nook. Simple as that. Don't whine at B&N, talk to Apple about why they have not been able to cut a deal with National Geographic. While you are doing that, just think about how the rest of us are reading NatGeo on our $199 full color Nooks.

    Back to the review! This magazine does it all, you can zoom in on the pictures and maps to get all the detail you want to see, but when you want to read the article, it has 'Article' view so you can just read.

    This is a Five Thumbs up!

    Pictures look stunning on NOOKcolor, articles are informative

    I bought the Migrations issue and I'm very pleased with how stunning the pictures look. I keep the issue on my home screen to show off to people who inquire about my NOOKcolor. Article view is also very handy because pinching to zoom is only helpful when viewing pictures and diagrams, although I find that I feel more like I'm reading the print version of the magazine when I'm zoomed in on the text and panning around... anyhow, National Geographic is very worthwhile ON NOOKCOLOR.

    Beautiful!!

    This magazine is absolutely beautiful on the NOOKcolor! Can't really complain about anything. It's perfectly formated, photos are crystal clear and you can zoom in/out on anything you like. One reviewer complained about the amount of memory this mag used, but on my NOOKcolor it was minimal. Even if you don't subscribe you should do the free trial!

    Memory Hog? - Pleasantly Surprised

    I had read reviews about how much memory space was required and almost decided against purchasing the magazine. I decided to go ahead and try is since there was a trial period. I checked the memory before and after downloading and discovered that the magazine only took about .3 GB of space. The format is fine when reading in landscape orientation. The Article View capability really helps bring out the text of the article. It isn't the same as reading the physical magazine but it works fine once you get used to how to navigate pages, articles, photos, and text. Sounds like a lot to think about but it's actually pretty intuitive. So far, so good!

    Love the addition!

    I absolutely love the edition to the color nook! The photography is everything I have come to expect from National Geographic! I am very happy they made this move. This magazine is why I bought my NOOKcolor. I do not regret it. The content is amazing. The great migrations in my opinion is a must have.

    It clearly states only available on Nook Color

    The description of the magazine clearly states it is available on Nook Color for now and maybe they will update their free apps later.

    That said, the magazines look gorgeous on the Nook Color.

    Definitely a winner on NookColor

    Wow...Just got my new NookColor and NatGeo was the first magazine I wanted to try. NatGeo has eye-popping photography that you can enlarge on the NookColor with a reverse pinch, and then take your finger and "roll" the image around on the screen to get to the details...very cool. There's a page icon bar at the bottom that you can scroll through to get to where you want, or you can simply used the Content menu. Then, once you're at your selected page, you can do the traditional left/right page turn OR you can tap Article View and just read the article without the pictures, using your finger to scroll up and down. LOVE IT.

    Download a trial and check out yourself

    I downloaded the Jan 01 issue to Nook Color and the user experience is very good. Pictures look very nice and color is vivid. Reading text is very good after zoom in a bit. I like reading magazines with color grahics, ads and photos but hate carrying paper issues around. This e-reader is in the right direction.

    Highly recommended

    I grew up with this magizine and have used it for 41 years as an adult. As an adult I have been everywhere doing my aviation job .....all over the planet except Aulstrilia and the South Pole.(mAYBE THERE IS STILL TIME). It deeply enriched my mind to gain so much more during my travels, instilled in me a deep love of history, and enhanced my sense of being in a familiar and known place. I will say that as a book collector I am so glad it is all going electronic...frequent moves are back breaking...and I do have the DVDs going back through the years now. I like a hardcopy feel but it is not so practical. I think this magazine is excellent for children to stimulate thinking about the world we live in. I am thinking long range...not just for some afternoon entertainment. (although as for me I get that too).

    Beautiful on NookColor

    This is the full magazine, including ads. The pictures are gorgeous on the NookColor and navigating the magazine is easy. I had been considering a NookColor but was leaning against it (my Nook classic is great), but the beautiful sample issue kept pulling me back to the display and eventually I bought both the NC and a National Geographic subscription. When I show people the NC, I always show them the beautiful photography. The issues don't take up a lot of space so I can keep several to show people.

    This is why I bought a Nookcolor

    The pictures are great. You can turn the nook to landscape to get the 2 page spread pictures, pinch and zoom works great. I love it. I like periodicals, but hate having them pile up all over the place. I don't have the room for them all. Besides, now when I am stuck somewhere I don't need to rely on magazines in waiting rooms. My library travels with me.

    Navigating through the magazine is easy, and the article view is nice for plowing through the large in depth stories that along with the gorgeous photos make this a must own.

    Really people

    You are looking at this magazine on a 7 inch screen. I have subscribed to NG for 15 years and although the photos are nice I really purchased NG for the articles. Which for me as long as I can read the print I don't care too much about anything else (a suggestion flip the color Nook to portrait instead of landscape). My only problem seems that I can read NG faster (I can scroll the pages faster then I can turn them).
    If you are purchasing NG solely for the pictures then a 7 inch screen maybe a bit of a disappointment.

    Makes TV Boring

    I actually look forward to going to bed at night so I can read my NOOKNatGeo. National Geographic has been a fixture in my life since childhood. It remains one of the most informative and engaging reads of any magazine. The color pics, maps and illustrations look spectacular on the NOOKcolor.

    Fantastic Magazine

    The Nook Color makes the magazine come alive right in your hands. The display is crystal clear. I would have never bought the paper magazine as there is only so much space to store magazines and books. It is easy to zoom in and out to see pictures or text close up. Well worth the price.

    Perfect format for enjoyment.

    I have always loved the NG but, ten years ago I dropped the subscription due to physical space accumulating old copies. The meat of each monthly publication is in the NookBook editions with fewer ads. I love it!
