The nook color is an electronic reader, meaning it’s just like the kindle but instead of being from Amazon, Barnes and Nobel decided to make one too. Its every readers dream to have one. With the nook you can purchase eBooks, magazines, newspapers, apps, etc. always updated with the latest issue of magazines and newspaper. There is one downsize, if you don’t have an USA or Canada credit card its pretty much useless for you because it asks you for it, for any download even if its free. The awesome stuff it’s got is you can highlight paragraphs, click on a word you don’t get and in real time look up the definition, not have to leaving the page you’re in.
