Great Item, But Does Have a Few Flaws

Ryan Kurtz, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: First off, I want to start out by saying that I love my Nook. My friend is an employee of B&N so he was there to help guide me along in my selection and answer any questions I had. So, yes, I did have a little bias to the product to begin with.

  • Summary: My journey towards owning a nook took kind of a strange path. I'd been excited to an e-reader, and when I was asked what I wanted for the holidays, my immediate response was a Kindle.

Nook BEATS the Kindle Overall, Reading Revived!

S. Morales, Amazon
17 December 2010
  • Summary: With these new ereaders on the market, the act of reading has come back to be a very "in-style," technologically advanced and hip thing to do in 2010. Books are now less intimidating and more fun and convenient, and this becomes only more encouraged through Barnes and Noble's Nook.

So much fun, we're fighting over it.

  • Summary: Although we've only had it for about a month, my wife and I seem to become happier with it every day. Because it's so conducive to reading, we seem to find more opportunities to read. Because my wife and I have some eyesight problems, the six different font sizes is an especially useful feature.

Great but not perfect.

R. Milliken "Rev Ralph", Amazon
6 November 2010
  • Summary: This is my very first e-reader. I looked at Kindle for a long time before I picked this device up. In my opinion this is the only e-reader that even comes close to Kindle. I was really hoping to receive a Kindle for my birthday but as it turned out I only had Barnes and Noble giftcards so I opted...

The Number of Formats Supported Outweigh the Cons

VeraP, Amazon
1 November 2010
  • Summary: I got the Nook the day before Nook Color was announced. I actually waited until the Nook Color was announced before opening the box - I wanted to see what the new gadget had to offer and if it'd be worth trading mine in.

Extra info to consider between Nook & Kindle (I own both)

K. Salinger "FNP, RN", Amazon
26 September 2010
  • Summary: There are a multitude of reviews that compare and contrast the Nook and Kindle, so I'm not going to go into a full-blown comparison and review. I'm going to focus on my experience owning both, most specifically battery life and availability of books. My husband uses the kindle and I use the Nook.

Nook, Sony, or Kindle

S. Kieffer, Amazon
13 August 2010
  • Summary: I researched the Kindle 3, Nook, and Sony eReaders. While I couldn't get my hands on a Kindle 3 to evaluate, I was familiar with the older Kindle 2 and how it feels/operates. The other two current eReaders I could evaluate locally and run through their paces.
