I really need your help! I think I am finally going to bite the bullet and get an E-Reader. Now I just need to decide which one I want. So that is where ya'll come in. Please leave me a comment and let me know if yoou have one, which one you have, pro's and con's, and any other advice.


The 2 that I have really been researching are the Amazon Kindle


and the Barnes and Noble Nook

My bestie got the Kindle for her 10 year old when they moved to Tokyo this year and they both are enjoying it.

I would reccommend going and playing with both and seeing which one you like the best. Best Buy and Target should carry the Kindle and well obviously Barnes and Noble will have the Nook. After playing with them both I thought that the Kindle was a lot easier to navigate and it had a bigger screen. I also didn't want the reader to be white bc of getting dirty. I liked that the Kindle comes in Gray too. So that is why I am asking for a Kindle for Christmas. :)

Hope that helps.

I looked at both of these too and ended up going with the Nook! I love it! A couple of my reasons for the Nook were...it will take other e-books, where as Kindle (from what I read) only takes Kindle books. The Nook also had a lending feature so you could lend a book to someone with a Nook. I also liked the touchscreen as opposed to the buttons. I was concerned about the fact that it is white, but I just ended up purchasing a silicone cover for it and now I don't have to worry about it! So far I have no complaints and I love it! It's so much easier to carry in my purse than an actual book and I had no more shelf space left for more actual books! Good luck!

My Mom has the Kindle and LOVES it. She said her favorite part is the no-glare screen. :)

I have a Kindle and I LOVE it! I can't really compare because I've never used a Nook so I wouldn't know the difference.

I will say the Kindles are much less expensive now, but the Nook maybe have come down in price, too. I just have seen the advertisements for the Kindle lately.

I think either way you will probably be happy! But my vote would be KINDLE! WOO HOO! Excited for ya! I got mine for Christmas last year!

The nook offers a touch screen and color. I think it might be a little better than the kindle based on what I've seen.

Personally I would go with the kindle over the nook!
