      I'm reading Pillars of the Earth right now.  It is definitely a HUGE book....it was fantastic at the beginning, but I've found it kind of slow in the middle.  I still have about 250 pages to go, so hopeful it will get good again...

          I got a Kindle a few months ago and i LOVE it!!!!  I googled nook -vs= kindle and kindle won in all the comparisons!! Definitly do your research, the one thing nook has is the e-lend feature....but kindle will have it available by the end of the year as an software upgrape! Good Luck!

              I want to know where you read that comparison. If you hold them side by side and try the features ...Nook wins. My MIL has a kindle and she wants a nook. A lot of people return the kindle for the nook. You can't beat more books from B&N PLUS library books for FREE. You are not locked into Amazon and can purchase books from other stores. Every time I want a book I check amazon and they don't have it. Def. do your research!!!!!!! Replacing your own battery instead of shipping it and getting a refurbished Kindle sucks!! Expandable memory for the nook to hold more books and the touch screen to flip your pages. An update like the iPhone so you don't have to buy a whole new e-reader. I could go on but I think the Nook has got kindle beat. But it's all a matter of opinion!

                Oooh. I forgot Free Fridays. Every Friday they give a free book out. And in store reading at any B&N go in and read books for free and get coupons for free drinks and desserts at starbucks just by showing your nook! YUMMM!

                  I researched for about a month before i got my Kindle! Google nook vs kindle reviews...and most Techies lean towards the Kindle...At first i did want a nook, for the color screen and the toughscreen. But kindles e-ink is less straining on the eyes, and touchscreen can go eitherway, sometimes it rocks and sometimes it is a pain in the ass. All i know is that i wanted it strictly for the purpose of reading,so the Kindle won for me. As far as books go, i havent had a problem finding anything i wanted to read. It really is a matter of opinion :)

                    Hmmm..On any board I go on I haven't seen any touchscreen problems. The touch screen is the same as my iPhone. The e-inks are the same so I don't know about less stressfull for the eyes. I only use mine for reading. I'm a big reader. I read on average 4-6 books a week (depending on size).  My suggestion is go to target and try the kindle and then go to wal-mart and try the nook. Hands on is the best way to go!!! I love my nook and you love your kindle!!! And the update this month gets faster page turning WOO WOO! :)

                      I figured it out! Those reviews are from when it first debuted almost a year ago. There were some kinks (amazon had them too). Almost all have been worked out!! They had an update! So most of the reviews are about the nook a while back. :) They should update those!!
