    Not what I was looking for at all.

    I have a great little Spanish phrase book that I carried around in Argentina. This one was $2.99 for Cinco de Mayo, and I thought, why not have one with me on my Nook. The other book is much better organized. I'm not sure who this is intended for. Maybe someone learning the language. Too much time is spent conjugating verbs. The 15 page English to Spanish appendix is the only part that I can use. It really wasn't even worth the three bucks for me.
