      E-reading has been a long time coming, and now that it has hit the mainstream we are inundated with different selections of e-readers. The Nook Color holds the record as the most expensive exclusive e-reader (although it delves into other media), so is this device worth the extra hundred dollars?

      Oh my, yes.

      Let me start with the downside. The battery life stinks. If you use it as only an e-reader, for two hours a

      day, you can expect to get three days off a charge. Compare that to a Kindle’s three weeks. However, if you use the Nook Color for gaming or multimedia, then expect to charge it daily. Also, when charging it with the included cable, a full charge can take hours. That’s the downside.

      The Nook Color stands out for several reasons. Its body is brushed aluminum, which feels pleasant but not too hefty. The touchscreen responds instantly and consistently, even with a screen protector. The Nook operating system, a version of Android, works well with the Nook store.

      their Nook Color into a fully-functioning Android tablet. The entire process takes about five minutes of research and about fifteen minutes of work, and is a cinch. I am not understating the ease. Any Android system can be yours. Froyo. Gingerbread. Even the brand new Honeycomb runs on a Nook Color. Best of all, if you’d like to return the Nook Color to its original system, it takes only a few minutes, so
      the warranty is not nullified. The first time I put Android on my Nook Color, I giggled like a child, and now I have a Android tablet to rival any Galaxy Tablet.

      If you want an e-reader to just be an e-reader and nothing else, maybe a Kindle would be best. But if you want an e-reader that does anything more, invest in a Nook Color and a 4 GB micro SD card. You won’t be disappointed.
