I have heard that Nook supports Manga when its converted from Images to Epubs, I saw this but am still worried that it may make some smaller bubbles of text to small. Does anyone else use this device for manga? If so how is it?
That looks fine but what about smaller texts like Love Hina for example...?
I am gonna bring a micro sd with some files on them, will they read from root so I can view them in store on the store model...?

I've not read Manga on the Nook (though it would be interesting to do so with my kids), so I can't address this. I know others have, so at least some Mangas work well with it.
As for trying out files at B&N, I doubt you'll be able to do this. The SD slot on the Nook isn't exposed. You have to remove the back cover to access it. Somehow I doubt they'll let you do that with the demo in the store, but you certainly could try.

I currently have some american comics on my Nook. If you're looking at the entire page, the text is pretty small. Then again, american comics are larger than manga. But, I've heard there is another option to make it easier to read.
If you have an image editing program, you can download the manga and turn each page on its side. This way, when you convert the file with Calibre, it will be split so that it will fit on the Nook. Then you will just have to turn the Nook on its side, and the images will all be larger.

So the nook can zoom? In Epub format or only PDF? I guess thy look ok...I do have very good up close eyes if that matters...People usually ask me to read small type on certain things(Like ads inside of ads..)
So nekowafer what your saying is that even American comic can be read? If thats so...Manga is much smaller...

Well I have dabbled in this a little bit, when I found out you could read manga on it I was ecstatic since I happen to be an anime freak but anyway I have not found a way to make the text bigger which is a problem because reading the text as is will be more then a bit straining on the eyes but its still pretty cool.

Yeah I figured that out, the sony 600 does but I heard the screen is bad...glare and low contrast...Cant find the perfect device it seems...Been looking and researching for days now.
Anyone have a solution? I know Love Hina will be unreadable...which saddens me.

This is my worst case, nook+Epub file converted with calibre: http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/9840/lovez.jpg
No way...needs zoom.

Well I hate to tell you this but that is basically what it will look like but with more defined details, the image and words will look sharper(@ least mine do) but still be that undesired size. Sorry I dont have any solutions for you or myself @ this time but if you find one let me know. Oh and there is no glare or any of the other things you mentioned that would be an issue the words are just really small.

So its a little more readable? I have been told by some people that they read that on there 5 inch ones which I find kinda strange....I can kinda read that image, just hard :-/....
