Residents can “sign out” a Nook, the same way they can sign out a library book. The Nook makes reading a lot lighter and brighter.
Weighing only 7.48 oz. a Nook can be easily held with one hand. The text adjustment allows for enlarging the print and the screen can be adjusted as well.

Overview of the Novel Rum Run as taken from Barnes and Noble:
AT FIRST IT WAS THE MONEY, THEN IT BECAME REVENGE.
Summer, 1928, Rusty loses his job as a Lake Erie tugboat deckhand and can no longer afford his charter boat business. Out of work, out of hope and with a family to feed, he desperately turns to hauling grape juice for the mysterious Trapani clan despite his suspicions. After several successful trips, Al Trapani offers him an opportunity to run illegal alcohol from Canada. Rusty reluctantly agrees to try it just once.
As Rusty slips into the underground world of rum running, he comes to realize he is losing far more than his principles-he is jeopardizing his marriage and his life. But getting out is not easy. Hunted by a sadistic renegade Coast Guard captain, Rusty soon finds himself in the captain’s crosshair, forcing him to challenge not only his principles, but his perception of good and evil.
The 1920s roar to life as Rusty’s rum running legend grows.
