If you love being able to access the web with your Nook but are frustrated by the limitations of mobile surfing, then The Nook Browser Series is for you! Ebook readers and other mobile web devices have become powerful on-the-go internet companions, but they're not as flexible as laptop and desktop computers. Their "keyboards" are painful for typing more than a few words, and their screens can't always handle complex, multi-column websites, at least not without a lot of zooming and scrolling. The Mobile Web Surfer gets around these limitations by providing you with a comprehensive collection of links to mobile-optimized websites.

The series consists of five books (four specialty, plus one combined volume) that can be used on your Nook, phone, or tablet, or even your trusty old laptop or desktop computer—anywhere you need high-speed, low-clutter web surfing with a minimum of ads and distractions. All the website links are live and clickable from within each book, and the books themselves are searchable and easily navigable with multiple active indexes and internal links.

This volume, The Mobile Web Surfer: Road Warrior Edition, caters to frequent travelers with both destination and travel management sites. It includes airline sites, bus and train schedules, global weather, city guides, radio and TV listings, and tools like converters and translators. It also includes 25 popular mobile websites (Facebook, Google, eBay, etc.), and all the mobile search engine/portal sites.

All volumes in this series:

* News Junkie Edition (577 sites): News, Sports, Business, Technology, Weather, Jobs, Popular, Search/Portal
* Road Warrior Edition (395 sites): Travel, Weather, Service Locators, Radio & Television, Tools, Popular, Search/Portal
* Soccer Mom Edition (404 sites): Lifestyle, Shopping, Jobs, Tools, Facts & Information, Service Locators, Social Media/Sharing, Popular, Search/Portal
