This is where the Nook Color falls down, for me.  The color screens
are great for a little light reading and messing around (e-mail, web
browsing, etc), but when I'm doing dedicated reading, I can't manage
more than an hour on them before they start to bother me.

The eInk displays don't bother me at all, and I can go hours of
straight reading with a problem.
