    Highly Recommended!

    I have read all the nook books and this one is the best. Great reference to learn about the new HD's.

    A much needed tool

    Much more comprehensive than the guides that come on the Nook. Can be a little confusing since it covers so many models but not bad for that. You may want it both on the Nook and on your computer if you have one or just get it in print if you don't.

    To OrcaLover

    I agree. Now I have to get a NOOK HD just to play games and get things in color. It is the cheapest tablet I can find.
