Primarily, what do you all use the Nook HD/HD+ for?

I use mine primarily for email (reading, composing, and sending), entertainment (Netfkix, Pandora).  And finally is my reader.  I use my N1E every now and then.  I am satisfied with my Nook HD+.

Reading--magazines (National Geographic & photo mags are awesome on the HD+)--and books.  Casual web browsing.

Re: Primarily, what do you all use the Nook HD/HD+ for?

I'd say in this order:

1) web access  (is nice to not have to run to a computer when i want to look something up)

2) reading (I honestly prefer ebooks to DTBs now)

3) games (doesn't replace console and PC gaming for me, but the casual style games are still fun)

4) music/video (TV still rules, and I prefer my MP3 player, but the Nook has been used for this more often than I expected)

 

I'd say I am quite happy with it, quirks and all.  It hardly leaves my side  :smileyhappy:

Re: Primarily, what do you all use the Nook HD/HD+ for?

I hate to confess this but…

 

Reading the Nook forums (they take twice as long to navigate on my computer running an old Firefox) is the main use.

 

Daily crossword and mah jong games, Bejeweled 2

 

Reading -- I tend to defer reading to my First Edition, and only use the HD+ when the other is charging

Re: Primarily, what do you all use the Nook HD/HD+ for?

Typically I use mine for web browsing while I'm away from my computer - if I'm watching a movie and need to look something up, for instance.

 

I also use it as a "third screen" when I'm writing. I'll typically have my actual work on my desktop, then sources and background on my Chromebook and NOOK so that I can check multiple things without having to break my stride.

 

And I use it for checking the news (Pulse and Flipboard) and social networking while I'm out and about at work.

Mainly reading and playing games, watch some movies, do some web browsing when I don't want to get up and go to my computer. Love everything about it.

It is my couch multi task companion. Web, forums, magazines, e mail checks during commercial or sporting events needing only partial attention.

 

When traveling for pleasure, games, movies, reading also. At home still use my NT to read or around town companion.

  1. Reading books (70%)
  2. Movies via Ultraviolet, VUDU, Netflix, or converted with DVD catalyst (15%)
  3. Web browsing - for news and checking on thse threads. However, If I'm going to post, prefer using my computer.(10%)
  • Checking on my elibrary holds
  • Balancing my checking with Checkbook Pro app (it's an awesome app)
  • Email - again, mostly reading, not sending
  • Occasionally - listening to music, or playing a game

Re: Primarily, what do you all use the Nook HD/HD+ for?

I use mine mostly for reading (especially magazines, love the way they look on the HD+!) and web browsing

Occasionally I'll watch a video or play a game.
