    Nook HD for Dummies Convenient

    Much more helpful than the instructions on the Nook. So glad I ordered it. Simple to understand, especially for people who are not very tech savvy.

    Good

    Information is very good, but I have a hard time trying to go to the book and then appling it on the nook. I would suggest buying the book in print.
