The Review

Just-Like-Paper Reading Experience
NOOK's best-in-class E Ink® display is easy on the eyes, with text as crisp and clear as a printed page. The 16-level gray scale display offers great contrast with no glare or backlight so you can read with ease, even in bright sunlight.


Over 2 Million Titles — Just a Touch Away
Browse and buy from our extensive collection of over 2 million books, including more than a million free titles and most books priced at $9.99 or less. All books can be sampled for free and then downloaded wirelessly, just seconds after you buy.


Endless Shelf Space
With 2GB of memory, NOOK stores up to 1,500 books, magazines and newspapers. Need even more space? Just slip in a memory card. It's an entire library light enough to take with you everywhere, so you'll never be without your favourites.

 

 


Read for Days
Reading a book you just can't put down? With NOOK's extra-long battery life, you won't have to. NOOK lets you read for up to 10 days, without ever having to recharge. So grab that 800-page book you've been daring to take on - with NOOK you've got the power.


NEW! Stay in Sync Across Multiple Devices
Automatically sync the last page you read on your NOOK or NOOK app with another. For instance, if you stop reading on a certain page on your NOOK, you'll automatically open to the same exact place on your iPad, iPhone or Android-based smartphone using our FREE NOOK apps.


NEW! Stay Organised with "My Shelves"
Create, name and organise shelves in "My B&N Library" and "My Documents" in "My Shelves". For instance, you can put all your cookbooks on one shelf, all your spy novels on another shelf, for quick and easy access.


NEW! Password Protect Your NOOK
Your NOOK can now be secured in two ways to prevent unauthorised use. First – you can set up your NOOK to lock when it goes into sleep mode, then unlock it with a pass code. Second – you can require a password to purchase content, so others using your NOOK cannot buy anything without your permission.
