    I think it is awesome but I am rather irritated. I am a teacher

    I think it is awesome but I am rather irritated. I am a teacher at a child care center and I am trying to teach my children sign language. I bought this book so that i could print out the signs and put them on the walls at work. unfortunately buying it with my nook i am unable to view the book on my pc therefore I am going to have to go to the store and actually buy the book again just so i can use it in my classroom. I am very satisfied with the book but extremely disappointed with the Nook itself.
