    save your money

    DO NOT bother. There's nothing in here you can't figure out on your own by mashing a few buttons, If you need a guide, the one that comes loaded on your nook will tell you the same stuff this one does.

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    This book contains even less information than the crippled user's manual that's included with the NOOKcolor. Don't waste your money on this skimpy book. It's a rip off.

    Definitely recommend

    NOOKcolor for DUMMIES has almost all the "how to" answers. For learning purposes it may have been a better move on my part to purchase hard copy as the point of reference vs. trying to go back & forth (from what I was doing in Nook to going to the appropriate area in Dummies-both online). As for NOOKcolor & reading - GREAT. DON'T KNOW WHAT I DID WITHOUT IT ***AND*** WI FI!!!

    Recommend for all first time users

    This book is well written. I am new to Nook and felt it was way to hard to learn but with your help I am slowly getting better. These old hands of mine do not always work good. But I can be slow and still get results.Thanks again for all your help

    A scent.....

    A rouges scent is left behind at the border. It is slightly fresh. If you follow it you might find the tresspasser. But the border needs to be reset..................-Redstar
