Is it bad to leave my Nook Tablet plugged in, charging, all the time?

Hi. My Nook is my bedtime sleep aid, so to speak, but because I leave it on all night, the battery obviously wanes. Is it harmful to leave it charging alk the time, even on shut down, so it won't freeze up like it does? Or should I just leave it off during the day, then plug it in at night when I get drowsy? Please comment!

Sometimes its best to allow a rechargeable battery to run all the way down before recharging it

It's been said that you shouldn't let anything with a battery charge unless it needs charging. Apparently, it drains your battery life.
Just to be safe, I'd take it out during the day.
Also, having it in for a longer period of times heightens the chance of a fire.

It is bad to leave it charging all the time, you should allow it to drain out entirely at least once a week I have found is the best way to maintain the battery. It is not a good idea to charge it when it does not really need to be charged.
