THE REPUBLIC CONCERNS JUSTICE AND CHARACTER...WRITTEN AROUND 380 B.C.!! PLATO'S BEST KNOWN WORK!! PUT THIS BOOK ON YOUR READ LIST!!!

The Republic is a Socratic dialogue written by Plato sometime around 380 BC concerning the definition of justice and the order and character of the just city and the just man. It is Plato’s best-known work and has proven to be one of the most intellectually and historically influential works of philosophy and political theory. In it, Socrates along with various Athenians and foreigners discuss the meaning of justice and examine whether or not the just man is happier than the unjust man by proposing a city ruled by philosopher-kings. The participants also discuss the theory of forms, the immortality of the soul, and the roles of the philosopher and of poetry in society

While this may be a good version and translation, the point is moot, because after turning a page it freezes my Nook. None of my other books, longer or otherwise, have caused this problem, only this one. Not sure why, but save your $ and pick a different copy.
