Request Review copy

Sebastopol, CA—Combine a world-class ereader with a top-notch tablet--then add know-how from technology guru Preston Gralla—and you have the perfect recipe for portable entertainment. Packed with clear instructions and helpful illustrations, "NOOK Tablet: The Missing Manual" (O'Reilly Media, $19.99) gets you up to speed on the NOOK Tablet so you can enjoy ebooks, magazines, games, apps, TV shows, and movies right away.

"I also cover advanced topics such as transferring files between your NOOK and computer, using your NOOK for work, and even temporarily 'rooting' your NOOK so you can use it as full-blown Android tablet," notes Gralla. "An entire chapter is devoted to documenting every single setting on the NOOK Tablet, so it is an invaluable reference resource."

The important stuff you need to know:

  • Relax with a book. Load your NOOK library with ebooks, comics, and interactive books for kids.
  • Play with apps. Enjoy the games and apps everyone’s talking about.
  • Go online. Browse the Web and check your email with built-in WiFi.
  • Be social. Share books and recommendations with your NOOK Friends and Facebook and Twitter contacts.
  • Take in a show. Watch movies and TV series, and listen to your favorite music anywhere.
  • Read all about it. Subscribe to a variety of magazines and newspapers.
