This review relates to the formatting contained in the Nook book. Contained in this book is a words per minute reading test where you have to read a passage from a blog written by the author and time yourself to see how fast you can read. The only problem is the passage is formatted in such a way that the text could not be enlarged and, at least with my aging eyes, I had a very hard time reading the passage. Please be aware before you purchase this particular book in Nook or epub format. Otherwise the book is a very well written informative read.
