That's typical for a microUSB connector. But...I now am at the point where I can plug it in to charge overnight...in the dark! I read at night, before I go to sleep, and keep the lights out so I don't disturb my wife.....when done reading and the battery is low...I plug it in 'by feel' and let it charge overnight.
Some people have reported similar problems. In some cases, it became easier to connect with use. Others have had it replaced at their local B&N.

Got a replacement what, microusb?
Ours worked fine but now one won't allow a connection- could I get a replacement microusb at my local b&N or do I need to do something online?
I have the same problem it annoys me to no end. Now after having the device for 6 weeks the cord nearest the device micro end is fraying and separating from the casing so I need a new power cord. Not sure where I should go to replace this part of the device. I have to place it just so in order to get the charge going on the device.
As suggested, mine has gotten easier to attach over time. No problems with connections, etc.
Thanks for the help, all!
