NROL4W on Nook

Hey, I'm thinking of starting this program and want to get the book, I was thinking about getting the nook edition. I was wondering if anyone here had it on their nook and liked it - are the illustrations usable? Does anyone take their nook with them to the gym? I'm in the 'figuring out what the heck I want to do' phase, but everything I've read - both on the MFP forums and elsewhere, makes it sound like this program is solid and might be a good fit for me.

    I bought the book on my Kindle at first and then ended up buying the book. You can see the images (I imagine the Nook would be the same), but it's not as easy to flip back and forth between pages when you're actually using the book. Also, I found the tables with the workouts too small to read, and since it's an image, not text, I couldn't adjust it to make it easier.

    I too have it on my kindle. at first i was pretty annoyed in flipping back and forth and not being able to use the page number references for the moves, but I've since gotten over it. The illustrations are fine on the kindle, I just bookmark all the moves for the stage I'm in for quick reference when I'm doing the workout.

    Another one who bought the book on Kindle and am planning on buying the actual book. It's very difficult to switch back and forth.

    Good to know. I just saw recommendations for this book today, and was wondering if it's something I should have the paper copy, or if I could put it on my Nook Tablet.

    Glad I found this thread. :)

    I have it on my Nook, and used that to read through it the first time. But I also have B&N's Nook for PC software (free) on my laptop that makes flipping through a digital copy easier. I use it to search for key terms and such. The software lets you bookmark pages so you can go quickly back and forth. I bookmarked the workouts and some exercises. Is it as convenient as a physical copy? Nope. But it's okay.

    I have it on my iPad - and it's kinda annoying because all the page numbers don't acutally correspond... and the images aren't necessarily on the same page as the write-up of the moves.

    If I had to do it over I would get the paper copy.
