    I need all the advice I can get. In the market for 1 and leaning toward the kindle, but am very, very confused.
    Any advice, or your favorite choice?

    TIA Pat

    has the kindle gone color yet? if not, the advantage of the nook is that you can get color magazines.

    My DH and I have nooks and love them but I've never tried a kindle so can't help with comparison.

    I love, love, love my Kindle! Just finished getting 25 free books on it.

    I have been using this Kindle for just over 2 years now and would buy another IMMEDIATELY if it died. *antijinx* That is how much I love it.

    And no more large quantities of DUSTY books making me sneeze :-)

    I have a Kindle. I got it because I'd already started a kindle acct. for my laptop. I got the smaller one (it'll fit in my purse). The books I had on my computer automatically transferred to my kindle. After I got mine, I saw there were cases that had a built in book light. My little case doesn't. At night while dh is watching tv, I use a clip-on book light. Mine will hold a charge for about 3 days, and I read a lot. I've never used or looked at a nook, but my friend loves hers.

    Only 3 days??? I read a lot and I charge about every 3 weeks. Maybe it's something about the new ones?

    Do you know if it's possible to remove books from the archived list. I have some that I'll never be interested in reading again. And I hate that they're taking up space :-D :-D I'm not sure how many books it'll hold.

    Check with your local library about e-book lending options. As of now, Kindle is not compatible with most library systems but is supposed to be by the end of the year. Many libraries are offering a service to let you digitally check out books to your e-reader. The type your library is compatible with might make a difference in your choice.
