Barry, Chatham Avid reader

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight, touch screen, reads EPUBs from the library, expandable memory
Bad points:
You cannot yet buy Barnes and Noble books in the UK...but I knew that its a licence limitation, they are only licenced to sell their books in the USA and Canada. So the whole wireless thing is a bit pointless at the moment. You have to download to your PC and then copy to the Nook, but to be fair thats all very easy. Turn OFF the wireless option or the battery life is not what I would expect.

Manufacturer's Description

Go easy on your eyes
nook’s easy-to-read E Ink® display is more like a traditional book than a computer screen. With no glare or backlight, and adjustable text size, you can read comfortably for hours.

Endless shelf space
With 2GB of memory, nook stores up to 1,500 books, newspapers and magazines. Need even more space? Just add a memory card. An entire library light enough to take with you everywhere, so you’ll never be without your favorites.

Reading now
Use Reading Now, your virtual bookmark, to bring you back to the last book you’ve read, right where you left off. Coming in early 2010, if you forget your nook at home and are stuck on a bus, keep on reading with your iPhone™ or BlackBerry®, using Barnes & Noble’s free eReader software.

“Lend eBooks to friends*
Share favorite eBooks with your friends or family. Most eBooks can be lent for up to 14 days at a time. Just choose the eBook you want to share and send it to your friend’s nook – or to any PC or Mac OS® or any iPhone™ or iPod touch® with the free Barnes & Noble eReader software downloaded on it. BlackBerry® & other smartphones will be coming in early 2010.

Navigate as you like
Control your nook with an easy-to-use full-color touchscreen, created to work seamlessly with the crisp, clean E Ink® display. Just use your finger to swipe through titles and tap open your next read. Or use nook’s large, comfortable, virtual keyboard to find exactly what you’re looking for.
