Navigation is less than ideal, but you do get used to it and get to a point where you can move around pretty well. It has never frozen my nook. There have been no delivery glitchs in the three months I have been using it. On the other hand, even with these glitches the fact is that I have my paper each morning whether I am home or not and it's not delayed by bad weather and I don't have to dig it out of a snowbank. I think that the price is a bit high, given the savings to WSJ is saved paper, ink, labor and distribution costs. On the other hand, there is no advertising in the e version so some of that revenue has to be made up somewhere I guess. All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with it.

I have been reading other reviews where people have stated that there is no index, or hard to navigate. There is a wonderful index (at least there is while I read on the Nook). In order to get the index (and for the index of any other paper one reads on the Nook), you hit the little up arrow at the bottom of the page (same arrow you hit when you want to resize text) and hit "content". A nice index comes up. At the beginning of each sub section is a summary of every article in that sub section. Either browse though that, or click the title of the article, and it takes you directly to that article. As newspapers for eReaders are still "new", as much as many people are trying them for the first time, there will be many who jump to give negative reviews based on format, without realizing that the issue is simply that they have not yet learned to use their e-reader correctly yet. Over time, this will be less of an issue. Newspapers will continue to optimize there formats as well, making them even better.

I was disappointed and did not subscribe. First, the digital WSJ omits the blurbs at the end of the Op Ed pieces explaining who the author is & giving their credentials for writing. That was a deal breaker for me. Second, the digital edition will show only one photo, but in the *microscopic* caption also refer to all of the other photos not available for nook readers. Third, the proofreading is lacking. Randomly placed words or junk characters will interrupt an otherwise coherent paragreph. When compared to the print edition, this occurred only on the digital edition. Finally, I am not sure why, but there is a tax on the nook edition of the WSJ. There is no tax on newspapers, so I do not know why there is on the digital edition.

This eNewspaper has more than made my nook purchase worth it. It's delivered and ready to read which is conducive to my early morning schedule. The content is superior and reads well on the nook screen (no eye strain). Slight criticism - the navigation can be clunky but you get used to it. It'd also be great if they could push market data to the device, maybe for the next version.

It is nice to wake up and have the issue delivered. Controls are no the most intuitive as moving from section to section or from article to article is slow but that is to be expected. I don't think anyone reads the real newspaper in order - you look through it and read what's more interesting to you. The electronic version doesn't make that portion easy. Timeliness of the deliveries and the content is great - it is as good as one can probably get on this type of device without the touch screen but for quick access I may consider on-line edition instead.

The WSJ Edition on Nook is certainly an impressive product offering on the part of WSJ. Despite the inherent device limitations of the Nook, the WSJ edition has maintained its superior stylistic appeal. The content is the best, as always, and clearly ranks above all other eNewspapers currently on the market. Highly recommended subscription - a good investment !

It's been a while since I've had the print version - while the electronic version has less content than the print there is still that valuable content available. Most, if not all, of the sections are available. The issue does have the New York City edition, possibly because I am on the east coast, which really didn't interest me as much. It does take a while to get through, however if you are in need of financial information it is worth the subscription.

As many have commented before having the WSJ delivered every morning to my Nook and available when I head out to work is terribly convenient. The layout is a bit difficult to use, and you aren't able to see the detailed stock listing page in Money and Investing (I guess for obvious reasons given the size of the screen). I will also echo the point that the What's New section and Indices should also be displayed on the front page. Cant wait for more business/finance magazines to make it on the bookstore.

Why is the monthly subscription price $14.99? I can subscribe to the WSJ Print and Online addition with FREE mobile reader for $2.69 per week, or $10.76 per month. With the nook version I only get an E-Ink version of the printed newspaper, without during-the-day updates. With the $10.76 per month subscription (which is not offered on the nook) I get a printed newspaper delivered to my door 6 days a week, access to the full online site, including archives, and access to the mobile reader content so that I can read articles on the go. Are you trying to get us to NOT use the nook? I don't get it.

Very limited national and international news (only 5-6 articles each, sometimes some headlines but not clickable). Lots of New York City news (including sports!) all of which were of no interest as I am not from NYC and was traveling abroad.

I enjoy reading the Journal in Paper form but find this much easier to travel with and stay current. Highly recommend WSJ on Nook.

Easy navigation, lots of content, nice formatting. Reading on Nook Touch.

I have the Nook Simple Touch and this paper works great with it. I belive the price is a great deal. Sure, you can subscribe for the paper ed or online edition cheaper, but in a year, that price than triples. Paying $14.99 a month to have it on my Nook first thing when I wake up is worth every penny. I love the content and the opinion section. I highly suggest this paper.

Often late, sometimes never delivered--Barnes & Noble needs to figure out how to do this correctly.

I thought I could read my existing subscription to the WSJ on my nook. I added it to my library. System sent me confirmation that the newspaper was added. Then I received a credit card bill for $219.48. It created a NEW subscription when one was already active. This was not presented in the email confirming it was added to my library. I only learned of the charge when the credit card bill arrived. In the end, the subscription was cancelled pro-rata. What a joke. Buyer beware!

A negative star if I could put it in here.  I purchased this and found it to be great for a very short period of time. It stopped opening on the nook shortly after. I updated and refreshed to no avail! I then decided I didn't want it, and didn't update the cc used to purchase it. BN decided to use the cc I used for ANOTHER purchase to continue charging me for this product! For months I was charged the full $18+ for no product.      I called to find out what they could do to fix this issue, and received no help. Was told the only thing to do was cancel it since every issue was "delivered" to the device, You are better off subscribing directly through WSJ and using the app on a phone or tablet.

The Nook version of the WSJ is very poor. I wish they would just give us the WSJ app instead.

After subscribing and not being able to see the wsj in my Nook library, I called cust svc and was told it cant be viewed on Noom app for iPad. Disappointed to have to cancel my subscription!

What a great paper. I could not believe how much content was in this for an electronic version. It was very easy to navigate through the stories. It includes us and world news as well as the financial news. Well worth the money!!!

If, like me, you prefer your e-newspaper to look something like a newspaper, this isn't for you. I bought one issue to check it out. Personally I find the navigation clunky. After 2 minutes I realized this isn't for me. The interface is awful. I'd rather spend more and get a real digital newspaper direct from WSJ.

I use a Nook precisely because I like having my periodicals downloaded so I can read them without a WiFi or cellular connection, but unlike the NYT and the FT, the WSJ subscription does not include online access to the WSJ website so it is not possible to read web-only content on the WSJ website. If you call the WSJ about this, they tell you to speak with BN who will tell you to call WSJ. This is a real shortcoming with the service.

Used to crash constantly on Nook HD and 2nd Gen Nook. It still freezes from time to time within the Android App, but it's far more rare these days. I still have issues with the sentences in various articles being out of place, but again, far more rare than it used to be. Going from 1 star to 3 stars.
