Studying Books
I mainly use this tablet for studying. It has a built in epub so there is no problem using this type of file. Since it has Google play you can download the Google keyboard and swipe text. There is a great Office app that I use to take notes. I had the previous nook tablet, but this one with the android system is fantastic and much more versatile. Fits all my needs perfectly and can't beat the price.

Reading books
I travel frequently and wanted an e-reader with e-mail accessibility and some internet functionality that wasn't too expensive. This was an upgrade from a much older very basic e-reader. What a difference. The lighted screen allows for reading on darkened airplanes as well as at night. The screen picture quality is superb. Battery life and weight are good. I'm still exploring all the other functionality such as downloading movies and watching them on TV with optional HDMI cable. I really didn't do head-to-head comparisons with other e-readers, but when I saw the screen display and price in the store, I was sold. The only negative is the screen does show some glare and collects lots of finger smudges, a small price to pay for this much functionality at this price.
How long have you owned it:

User Pdf Files
Used the original Nook and liked it for general reading. I found it not so useful for my course materials - a professor who uses a lot of personal pdf files. Also, found it hard to regulate lighting when reading at night which I do a lot of. The Nook HD+ fixes all those problems. Reading is like a classic book. With a cover from B&N it feels just like a book, both in texture and weight. Pages turns very easily, sometimes too easily as an inadvertent touch will go one page forward or back. My pdf files show flawlessly, both in format and color. For reading I recommend the Nook HD+ as the top reader.
