DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK FOR NOOK! It only shows the pictures and not the words for some reason. Barnes and Noble chat told me to wait a few weeks while they filed a case. In the end, I had to contact them back a month later and I got a refund because the woman couldn't fix it... I have read the book, the book is phenomenal, but the nook book it not worth the hassle
