Nook & Kindle

So I broke down and purchased a Nook Color. My Kindle 2 is 2 years old and the joy stick is going, but it still works fine. I haven't downloaded that many books on it yet. My mother also bought a Nook Color, now at least I have someone to share books with. I have not decided which one I like better. As of now I like them both, although I am used to the Kindle. This doesn't make it better just more comfortable. But over time, I'm sure the Nook will become just as comfortable. One thing I like about my Kindle more is that it is 3G. The Nook Color only has Wi-Fi for now, but my mom said she heard it would get 3G by May. I do like to get books off of WhisperNet (Kindle). It kind of sucks to have to plug it into the computer to sync. But that is a small thing. Also I can now see how much bigger the Kindle 2 is from the Nook. But the Nook screen is bigger.

I do like it, I have to get used to it. I think the sharing is based on the email you use with BN. I don't know. Thanks for the link, I"ll check it out.

If I figure out the sharing thing, I'll let you know.

Thanks for that post. I still have the original Kindle. It is in decent shape, because I don't use it on a regular basis. I am considering a Nook for the next time around, since I really prefer to patronize BN over Amazon.

The one thing I am worried about is the glare. I really like that the Kindle has the anti-glare screen.

The kindle anti-glare screen is the best. Nook does have the glare, but you can buy those glare plastics, it helps.
