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.

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.
