This is one of those devices that you never knew you needed until you got one....and then discovered that you can't live without it. My Nook Color arrived with the manufacturer's packaging and literature, and there was no evidence that this was a refurb. This is much more than an ebook reader; this has the potential to be a tablet PC if you have the time and patience. Even if you don't, there are enough Android apps available for the Nook to make it a fun device for the entire family. Just add it to your wireless network, and you will be taking it with you in every room of your home. I use it in the kitchen -- follow recipes that I look up on the web while listening to Pandora radio. I've hooked this up to external speakers and excellent sound quality filled the house. I fall asleep with my Nook at night, and check the weather before I get out of bed in the morning. I've taken my Nook on trips instead of books and a laptop and was able to read whatever I wanted as well as receive and send email, find driving directions, and look up entertainment venues on the web wherever I could find a WiFi connection. I like my smartphone, but I love my Nook.
