    Interesting articles - some difficulty navigating.

    I enjoyed the articles - plenty of details and pictures. However I had trouble navigating on the Nook on several of the pictures. The book would no longer allow me to scroll to the right...it just kept showing the same picture over and over. I had to jump over several pages using the navigation in order to get going again..pretty frustrating due to that alone. But what I could read I enjoyed thoroughly. Would have given 4 stars if it didn't hang up on the pictures.

    Not recommended for trying to install solar pannels for your home

    I was looking for something that would let me build my own solar panels for my home. This set up is connected to batteries and I am really looking for something that is more for my home than little items. The set up wasn't big enough to power a home for 24 hrs.
