Nook or Kindle which one do you prefer?
I have been reading my ebooks on an Internet Tablet. I have this for a few years and am looking for something better. I am currently pricing Nooks and Kindles at my K-Mart since they have a layaway. The Kindle fire is on sale for $124 and there is a similar Nook for the same price. I do have a little experience reading Nook Books on my tablet because I have a Nook app. The only other thing I would use my new device is to watch videos-movies and tv shows and maybe play some games.
I've never used a Nook, but my Kindle Fire HD is probably one of the best things I've ever owned. My only real issue with it is that occasionally have problems with the Silk browser - it can be slow and stops running sometimes. There is also a problem with some Flash videos, but there is a workaround for that and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to implement it.
I play games on mine, I watch movies through NetFlix and I listen to music through Songza and Pandora.
But the books! Oh my goodness the books! I like that the Kindle bookmarks my place, lets me keep all of my digital books on my device, it can show me book notes that other users have made and has a built in dictionary. It's like heaven in a little seven inch box!
The only things that I'd change about the Kindle are those dang ads which you have to pay $15 to get rid of, the fact that it doesn't come with an ac charger, it's about $20 more and the camera only faces towards you.
Kindle by a long shot. Barnes and Noble threw a lot of their chips into the Nook and many business experts/critics say the company is losing gas quickly. I wouldn't jump on board the Nook ship at all.
I have a Kindle and it's one of the best gifts I've ever received in my life. Easy to use, for many it renews their interest in books and, in most cases, you can get the books for cheaper than print. I'm not sure what I'd do without my Kindle now.
Why not try the software platform before purchasing a unit. You can download them for free onto a PC. I did.
Kindle. I love mine and adore it. You can study Power Point shows, word documents, etc. The apps make everything better and the number of books makes it fantastic. I'm entirely an Amazon.com fan because they have almost everything. And as a student, it's possible to sell textbooks and purchase more at low prices.
I love the kindle. Amazon has almost every book available in Kindle format. It's quick to download, easy to use and can be used on other devices such as iPods and PC's.

Is it "old school" thinking to say you prefer a paperbook to a Nook?I have the chance to get a really nice eReader for a reasonable price...but part of me is loathe to transition from paper to digital. Is being "old school" going to hinder me from experiencing my favorite books?

What's your opinion on Kindle Fire?One of my friends has one, and I'm a bit of a tech geek, and want some feedback on the product before I go and buy it.
