Got the NOOK Simple Touch today. I've noticed that randomly as I am reading/turning pages, the screen momentarily goes black then to the printed page. It's just for a second and not every time. It's a bit annoying. Is this normal?
(NOTE: This is only as I am turning the page ... can happen with page tap, page swipe, or using the button on the side ... not every time).

This is normal; it's how an e-ink screen refreshes. Most e-ink screens refresh at every screen change, but the N2E is designed to minimze ghosting and thus refreshes only every 6 screen changes.

Thank you ... I appreciate the information. I don't remember it happening with the original NOOK, but it's been a while since I had that.
It's a relief that it's not a defective NOOK. Thanks again.
