I bought a Nook Simple Touch. It rocks!
« on: April 07, 2012, 10:22:36 PM »
I finally decided to buy a Nook Simple Touch, the black & white, E-Ink version.   It really is just like reading on paper.   I took it down to Laguna Beach today and had no problems reading it in direct sunlight.   It is great to have the ability to carry so many books in such a lightweight device.

Now I have to root it.   ;)

Just a follow up, I returned the Nook within the two week return period because I saw the announcement of the Nook Simple Touch with the Glowlight.   I picked it up a few weeks ago just before I went on vacation.   The light is a great addition when you're in an area with poor lighting.  Awesome device!
