This app supports the Nook comics feature, which lets you read comics, graphic novels, and manga. This app also allows users to customize their reading experience with different fonts, line spacing, and themes. Don't want to purchase a book to try out the app? That's fine, the app comes with free books! One of the coolest feature of this app is that you will never lose your place when reading a book since the Nook app will sync the last page you have read across your tablet or PC or Nook device.
