Okay…I need some consumer opinions from those who own a Kindle or Nook. I have been researching Nook in anticipation of owning one. I have seen both machines and like the Nook best. The aps on it work in a fashion that feels logical and useful for my brain…the Kindle not as much.
However, I am noticing that each type of e-reader has drawbacks. Over half the titles I seem to want to own which are sold by Amazon seem to not be available on Kindle…therefore the only option if I go with Kindle is to buy the book in paper version…that sorta defeats the purpose of a Kindle if you see what I mean. However, what books are on Kindle come pretty darn cheap, almost always less then $10.
On the other hand, all of the books sold by Barnes and Noble are on Nook, however, they don’t seem to have a big difference between the paper cost and the e-book cost….which kinda takes a huge incentive out of owning a Nook for me….I am not going to be able to replace this collection of books very quickly at that rate…So other than the very real desire not to cart books around any more, I’m starting to wonder if I should try to make a purchase at this point. Though, after moving three times in one summer, I’m about done with the boxes of books thing! That makes the Nook seem really inviting at the moment…that and I travel alot. It would be fabulous to not have the bulk and weight of books in my carry on! Not to mention there’s no worry about a book of erotica capturing notice by anyone I might share a seat with while reading.
So…Honest opinions here….can you talk to me about more pros and cons and what you’d do different if you had your purchase to do over?
