Question about

May 9th 2010 10:04 pm

I'm just wondering... I want to get a nook, mainly to use it as a manga/comic reader on top of text-only books. I have a huge collection on my hard drive.

most are either folders of jpgs, .zip or cbz/cbr files and I know I can convert most of them into a epub file. My main concern is, will the nook stretch out or misplace text from the original speech bubbles? I've heard it's ok now but I really want to make sure.

It won't stretch it; it'll retain the original resolution. Additionally, nook does support viewing .jpgs and .pdfs natively, and nothing is ever skewed!

I am sorry I don't know. I would think and iPad with its color screen would be a better device for graphic novels and comic books. But then again what do I know. Best of luck.

I have no idea to be honest. If I remember to I'll attempt to convert some manga pages tonight and load em up to see how it works for you.

Just to give you some other options, I don't have a nook but I have an iPad and ComicZeal... you can just drag and drop zips, rars, cbz, cbrs and they just work. It's an incredible comic/manga reading platform.

Goodreader is awesome for reading PDFs, like this 184MB, 4k page "the complete calvin and hobbes" somebody let me borrow. It's faster than many desktops...

the new NOOK tablet and 1.4 update for the NOOK color support reading of CBZ files. It has the same reading experience for the NOOK comics.
