Best Nook Tablet Games

best nook tablet games header nook tablet mobile games appsNo matter how good a book is, sometimes reading can get to be an eyesore. The best of stories will make you power through the unpleasantness, but the worst of them will make you slam the book down in frustration. If you’re reading on a Nook Tablet, we strongly suggest not doing that. Instead, we offer you this alternative: Back out of the book, head to the home screen, and pick one of the awesome games we’ve listed below to release your frustrations. It’s a far better alternative than the torture of a boring book and a great tension reliever for those moments where you just can’t take another page turn.

It’s a new artsy take on the cellphone classic, and it turns out the game is just as fun as we remember.
