you here, didn't it?
Now I was already a big fan of the Nook, but in a word, yes, the Nook did get better with this update. The Version 1.5 update has made its debut, and I'm impressed--I didn't even realize I wanted half the stuff that was included with update Version 1.5, but some of the enhancements of the Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader are terrific, and make it even more enjoyable to use. I dropped into the B&N, saw the update was available on my Nook, and dowloaded it via Wi-Fi. It took about ten minutes to download and reboot. I'll give you a few of the highlights:
Turn the Pages Faster
As it was before the update, you could turn the pages faster than you could with a real book (if you try to turn pages that fast in a real book, you'll tear them out.) Now, when you turn a page, it's nearly instantaneous. Now, if you're like me, and sometimes you get sleepy when you read, it can cause a little confusion, because it changes so fast you think it hasn't so you turn the page again, and next thing you know, you're all confused. I'm sure I'll get used to it.

Organize Your Library
The new Shelf feature is very nice, and it takes only a few minutes to organize your library like you want it. I basically split my titles up between "Fiction" and "Non-Fiction" but you could be much more specific than that. You could organize then by genre, or author, etc. However you want. It's a great feature, and makes it easier to find your books. If only my library shelves at home were organized like this, because I can never find anything I'm looking for there.
