I am looking to buy one tomorrow. Does it allow you to change font size and fonts? Is it a good reading experience?

Thanks.

Not many people have Nook reader. If it's any help, probably not, I have Kindle and you can change a font size in steps there.

I can't answer specifically with regards to dyslexia, but yes and yes are the answers to the two questions in your post.

Given that they seem to be sold out everywhere, I wouldn't be so sure about that.

In that case their owners are just lazy or very very busy I would have answered the question if it had been about Kindle.

true, went in to Currys (which I usually avoid) to find no Nook's at all.

Not completely sure everyone buying them are doing so to use them as a ereader however. At 29.99 its a pretty cheap way of getting an eink screen for other uses (or other parts for other uses) and No doubt a lot of people are buying them up just because they are cheap in the hope they can sell them on later at a higher price

This forum is a bit of a ghost town, hence the slow response. I am only checking it because I am bored at work. Also google would have answered the font question :-P
