Try before you buy Nook

Barnes & Noble is doing a great thing IMO.  I was there today looking at the nook and they let you hang out in the store with one for an hour, they just take your license and put it in a lockbox.  It was great that I was able to test one out without having a salesperson hovering over me.

I never used a tablet or reader before.  I was with LO at the time and we downloaded a Sandra Boynton book that was interactive.  I love National geographic and that comes with some great animation and ways to view the maps in their issues.

I tried downloading a game app but it failed.

Getting online was very fast. I would say my only issue and I am not sure if this is once since I never used one of these products before was that to DL a book or magazine it took a noticeably long time.

I am still unsure if I will get it, but that is my nature with anything over $20 lol

That's really nice, but I don't want a nook not worth it for me.

Hmmm, with my Kindle, the downloads are almost instant.

I have the nook, the original one. Downloads don't take to long for me and I get tons of Genealogy/Scrapbooking books. It all depends on the wifi you are connected to and how many downloads are already on there. It is like a computer, you overload it and have a slow connection it won't be fast.

Now I am glad that they offer a chance to look at it. My husband liked his friends Nook so he bought one for both of us. I don't use mine as often as maybe I should. I use my phone more often.

Yeah. My kindle is the same. Very quick. Of course I don't have color or anything. It could be the connection where you were at.
