Love my nook and promptly downloaded "Under the Dome" but the town map is too small to be able to see on the nook. Since this is my first experience with electronic reading devices, I'm asking 1) if this is always a problem and if so 2) what are my options?
Thanks for any suggestions.

I knew exactly what you were asking when I read your subject. I can't really see the details on that map either. I tried enlarging the font size but that didn't change the map at all. I would suggest downloading the eBook into your BN desktop reader on your computer. It's a free download if you don't have it yet (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/ebooks/download-read
Maybe we will be able to see it better on a larger computer screen. I just tried downloading that book into my reader but it's not working yet again. For crying out loud...
Anyway, hope that helps. Maybe you can download it.

This is a good work around but not what is needed. To cubersome. I would likd a sofware solution to this. The Kindle has the same problem. I doubt they will be able to do this.

The solution would be to add some touchscreen navigation for PDF files. Make is so you can do a 2x or 4x zoom, then make buttons where you jump sections as smooth scrolling will never happen on an e-ink screen. When zoomed the map would be like a 3x3 grid (kind of like a tic-tac-toe board) where you are looking at the top left section closer, then you could jump to the next section on the right or below the section you are viewing. Again, this is just speculation on how it could work, but that is the beauty of this type of device. The odds are great that this can be added in the future. For now the e-reader on the PC will have to do.
