Ooooh... so the program converts it so the text wraps? Does that mess up the format at all if there are pics or anything?

I've only read one book that had pics so far...they were whole page pics so I would just see a page w/ a pic and then the page would be my book again.  I do think that kids books are specifically formatted for the kindle (idk what picture books that are not made for the kindle would look like on it).

I got a nook tablet, i didn't like the reviews of the fire and i know ppl who have them and returned them due to the screen freezing up. my kids love that the books are in color and i can either read to them ,it can read them outloud or the kids can read on their own. so far the apps are really good.

I have a nook tablet for our classroom so far so good i recommend a screen protector for either kindle or nook. A touch pricey for essentially a sticker but with my 6 and 4 yr olds using it there are neither scores of scratches or fingerprints
