    not a good nook book

    i was actually enjoying reading this on my nook color until i got to page 56 and i had to actually code something. the pictures included are so small they're almost useless. the pictures cant be opened in a new window, the nook wont zoom in on them, and adjusting the size in settings only makes the text bigger, not the pictures. as a beginning programmer, this really doesnt work for me cause i need to be able to check my work. so now, if i want to continue, i have to go out and buy the real version of this book??? not impressed. i want a refund.
