    I found a great review on youtube and now I must have a nook color

    I want to know from people who have one how it is

    using calibre I have been making some fanfics which are saved as txt files into epub format with covers and some cbr comics into epub

    I can load these onto the nook color and they will work right? Is comic reading a good experience?

    my wife has a normal nook and she swears by it, I would think nook color is just a gimmick imo, colour means less battery time reading a book is black and white unless you have one with pictures lol, also it looks like nook colour is not e-ink and has a backlit colour display.

    Just stick with a regular one. E-readers having a huge amount of features kind of defeats the purpose as you want the battery to last as long as possible and not have to recharge very often.

    Yes, ePUBs work great on a NOOK Color. I have one (2 months now) and it is far from a gimmick. Great machine.

    I heard something about someone installing Android on it. If it's possible and easy to do, I might look into one myself. I'd kinda just be like a really cheap Android version of an iPad, minus the 3G (I think, plus I wouldn't pay for it anyway when I can use my phone as a hotspot). It'd be nice to have a full-sized touchscreen that can do most of what my phone does (like write documents, do presentations and spreadsheets, e-mail and web, etc).

    You can do a mess of stuff with it if you root it! Its just a matter of putting some files on a SD card. But I must warn you. There is a massive problem with alot of book colors where they refuse to charge after a few weeks. My mom has one and I've gotta say, its pretty nice.

    get it, root it (xda-developers.com is your friend) then use normal android apps and there is a patch that can increase the battery life by 2-3 hours iirc.
    From what I've heard the touch screen is awesome.
