Introduction

The Barnes & Noble NOOKColor (or Nook Color as we refer to it, out of respect for the English language) is the more expensive of the two eBook readers that the bookseller offers, with a price of $249. But you get quite a lot for your pennies: it offers a bright, clear 7-inch LCD screen and the ability to play music and videos. Although the LCD screen has its downsides, it might be a good pick if you want a device that can handle eBooks and videos without the bulk of an iPad or tablet.
