    Do not get the nook book

    I bought this book then returned it because it only gave me 33 pages of the book. I was told to re-purchase later so i did. Still only 33 pages. I was told it was a problem with the publisher so i was ti archive it and i would hear back within 2 weeks. A month later still 33 pages! I went in to barnes and noble and the MANAGER of all people was disturbed that the associate was helping me because they were doing inventory. Her words " what are you doing that she cant do herself from home?" Now i refuse to purchase this book or to shop at barnes and noble in my town again.
