Comments about oreilly NOOK HD: The Missing Manual, 2nd Edition:

Pretty basic information on the Nook HD and HD+. I disagree with the reviewer that Chapter 13 is incorrect. I just purchased a new Nook HD+ and the web browser is in fact Google Chrome.

Comments about oreilly NOOK HD: The Missing Manual, 2nd Edition:

The Missing Manuals are my favorite series of computer books, I have about a dozen of them. However the Nook has had some updates and now uses The Opera Browser. Much of this book, including especially Chapter 13, is outdated.
