I'm eager to hear how people like the update and how well the Nook Color works as a tablet computer.

I did a manual installation. Went through without a hitch.

App prices are comparable to apps for the iPhone and such. Tried Angry Birds and it is a LOT of fun on the tablet! Bought a couple of other apps, but have not tried them yet.

Can't seem to link up the e-mail yet, but I think it's because I'm a dufus! Missing something pretty obvious, I think.

Reading platform is the same as before.

Looking great so far!

Wendy, thanks for the thumbs-up on Mahjong. I was thinking of getting it, but wasn't sure. :)

If you like Tangrams, the Tangram app is a lot of fun! Drag and drop the pieces, drag the corners to spin them to the right position. Lots of shapes to fill.

Got the Mahjong and really like it, too! Very easy to use, IMO. Can't wait to try the daily game feature.

I got Word of the Day, Angry Birds (can't get past level 1, 12 but enjoying it) and a Hidden Object that's frustrated me so far.  But I'm having fun!!

I am upgrading the work's Nook Color :) so will enjoy being able to review it now as a tablet.

Taking several minutes to download but figure it will be worth it to see angry birds on the big screen.. ehhe

Ani: Ditto Nancy! There are cheats that show you how to complete levels when you get stuck.

Tried Blocked Unblock Me. Big hit with my 9-year-old and me. Can you tell we like puzzle games? 

This one is a slide pieces out of the way so you can get the red block out of the box. :)

Sorry, put the wrong app title!

I just wanted to warn everyone that B&N is having problems with the updates.  I turned on my nook today and everything was gone.  It had me go through the set-up like I had just turned on the nook for the first time.  I called one of my local stores and they said it happened to other people and that they hope to get everything fixed tonight or tomorrow.  Everything should go back to normal after the fix.  The person I talked to said to call 1-800-the-book if you want more information.  Hopefully everything will go back to normal as I really do not want to reload all my books.

It actually had nothing to do with the update Arica. Mine did the same thing. It's fixed now though! It set it back to factory so I did have to sideload all my non B&N books and wallpapers.

Jane - OMG!!! That is so funny that you should mention that game (plants vs. Zombies)! I had never heard of it before until...

I watch kids before and after school and one of the kids I watch asked if i could look into getting it for the compuyter. Then i see you talk about it.

Funny coinsidence!

OK, since they were cheap, I bought both Aces Bubble Popper and Sweep.

The bubble popper game is one where you tap on anyplace that has more than one bubble together. There is a classic game (try to get as many bubbles as you can) a timed game (pop as many as you can in the time allotted) and a speed game (level up by popping a certain number of bubbles before time runs out, bonus levels in between that can be quite challenging). If you like those types of games, then you'll really like this. It's well-done and is a lot of fun!

Sweep is kind of like a shuffle-board puzzle. It gives you a few chips on a tableau that you have to figure out how to push off all the chips but one. So if there is a pattern of four chips, you have to figure out how to push them into one another to push three off the board. It's kind of fun but it is a brain game. Not a speed one. I think my daughter will really enjoy this one as well. She loves puzzles like this. I think that if you like "Unblock Me" that you'll like this one, too.
