My parents gave me the Nook for Christmas and it has finally arrived.
First question I often get is why not a Kindle? When the kindle first came out, you could not install the kindle software on a laptop for reading. You had to buy a kindle to read amazon’s ebooks. Barnes and Noble allowed you to download the software on your laptop to read books. So if I were to purchase a kindle, there are about 20 ebooks that I could not read on it.
There are only about 12 magazines for the nook right now, but the book selection is pretty extensive. It connects to the AT&T network to download books for free and it is built on the android platform so we will probably see some apps come out for it.
Pretty happy with it.
