Why would you write a book on using spotify and then make it $12.00? Speaking of things being made, there should really be a spotify app made for the nook "Cough" "Cough"

Besides the plethora of free online guides, spotify itself is pretty easy to use in of itself. Its layout and fuction is VERY similar to itunes. This book is a scam.
