Good E-Reader

Most polished piece of hardware Barnes and Noble have ever issued

from Good E-Reader

Barnes and Noble is calling the Nook Glowlight Plus the most lightweight e-reader they ever made, at 6.9 ounces. It is waterproof, dust proof, has a super high resolution screen and incorporates software features never seen on an e-reader before. It has a lifetime in-store warranty, which should build consumer confidence that Barnes and Noble is serious about e-readers again. The overall design is sleek and modern, and forgoes the ridiculous rubber edges from the 2013 model. It is now available for $129.99, with an additional 10% discount for Barnes & Noble Members...

I would recommend this e-reader if you are interested in just reading e-books and not PDF Files. This device would be perfect for people who are casual readers and those of you that live close to a Barnes and Noble bookstore.

Hoss

Nightmare e-reader

I have spent hours trying to open borrowed library books on this e-reader. My kid got this useless piece of junk for Christmas. Now I listen to her frustrated cries. I've opened three library books on it since Christmas. Now, it won't open any. I hate this thing.
