    Understand Before You Buy

    Particularly important to new members:

    As you complete the purchase, you'll run into a short comment that apparently says which Nook (hardware) the book works on. If you just have the software to read Nook format, it won't work! I regret having bought it, because I cannot read it. :-(

    This has been my first experience purchasing an ebook at BN.
