I have the Nook Color and am semi happy with my ereader. I would of course be MUCH happier with it if I’d gotten mine for only $159! I’m a little jealous of those who will be able to get it at this price but I was happy to have my eReader on my vacation earlier this year. I do have to say that I’ve noticed my Nook Color eReader has a few weird quirks that leave me a little disappointed. The fact that it’s only has 8 hours battery life, the electrical plug is a little big for my purse (when I want to carry it around), at times it freezes and the touch screen sometimes doesn’t respond. But out of the eReaders I looked at I chose this one because of the added benefits. It’s a little tablet but a lot cheaper than the Mac tablet.
