    Can't wait to download it. Got a nook already, but don't carry it everywhere.

    I received 2 B&N gift cards for my birthday in May. I have been waiting for the Nook for Android. My only concern is the large install size (18MB). It works well, I added the gift cards to my account and purchased, using the gift cards and downloaded 2 ebooks. I also downloaded several free ebooks.

    I am very pleased with the Nook for Android app.

    Anyone know how to delete a book. I read a sample and can't figure out how to get it off the Droid.

    I've read a couple books on Aldiko. I tried a couple samples on the android Kindle. I'll give this one a try too. I haven't looked into seeing if the kindle and nook's downloads are drm free or not. I'd rather keep all the books in one app which probably means using something like open source Calibre to choose a common format for one of the readers.

    1. Sign onto your account at Barnes & Noble - Books, Textbooks, eBooks, Toys, Games & More from a web browser and delete it from your library. I could not figure out how to delete from the app.

    2. Using a file manager delete it from your sd card.

    The app seems to be missing this function.

    My understanding is that both Kindle and B&N utilize DRM protection; each has their own DRM scheme. The Kindle DRM scheme was recently changed because of the available methods for defeating the prior versions.

    Because of the differing DRM schemes and the fact that my family and friends give me gift cards from many booksellers, I have several eBook readers.

    At this time, I have no favorite ebook reader.

    Thanks REMilk

    Both Aldiko and the phone's Kindle worked fine for me. I did like how Aldiko could change the brightness easily while reading and you also could check progress easier it seemed. Other than that both apps were comparable and actual readability was the same.
