Anybody have a Nook or Kindle??

Post by summerbreeze76 on 1st October 2010, 12:00 pm

I just got the Nook last weekend. I am so excited to have it. What do you guys who have it or something like it think about it?

Well I bought my nook because I have Lupus and hardbacks got too heavy for me to hold. It froze the first month I had it, and several times since then. The price is much better now. But if I had to do it over again, I would pass it by. Now I use my iPad as my primary e-reader. Happy Reading

I bought a kindle two weeks ago because I felt it was reasonably and I have been using it since. I really was hesitant to purchase one because i am a traditionalist when it comes to books. I like the feel of an actual book and I thought the kindle would be kind of odd. Flash forward two weeks later and I love it! I have already ready two books which are rather large and would have been a hassle to read during my daily train commute. It is very lightweight and the book downloads are lightening fast. I completely recommend it! Don't know about the nook.

I'm still not decided between the two...

Now, Staples has Kindle available in stores!

At least now I can actually hold/feel the Kindle before I buy.

hi all! I just bought the nook and so far I really like it.I really went back and forth about it but my aunt has one and she loves it so that helped with my decision to purchase one. I still dont like the thought of buying books when you can get them for free at the library but oh well.

I have a Kindle. Pre-ordered the DX before it even came out. I love it. I justified the purchase because I read so much. I think at the time it was $479. Ouch!

My workplaces bought all of their staff Kindles last month! One that's the coolest gift and secondly, I love it. I love how light it is and the screen actually looks like a book page.

I have a nook and love it! I love that you can go to B&N to read ebooks for free and that you are able to check out ebooks from the public library too!

Would you ladies who also have NOOKs be interested in "lending" books to one another? I think that's a really cool option B&N gives the users.

I LOVE my Nook! I've have it for about 6 weeks and have no complaints whatsoever! Anyone out there interested in the Lend Me feature, let me know. I don't have any friend that have a Nook and I am anxious to use it.

I LOVE my Nook. I have the 1st generation one - I so want the color one but it would be luxury purchase since my Nook works great now.


@ChardaeD, that's a great idea. I haven't used this feature yet (I'm the only one of my friends with a Nook).

Nook Color

Post by whatdoesitlooklike on 30th December 2010, 8:42 pm

Hello! I have the Nook Color and I love it. I have downloaded almost 65 books, most of them free from B&N and a couple other sites I found online with free ebooks.

I would love to use the Lendme feature with other Nook owners--I too am the only nook/ereader owner in my circle of friends.

I chose the Nook Color over the Kindle specifically b/c of the color. I don't really like the look of the e-ink, and I prefer the LCD screen.
It's nice to carry on the train to and from work, and it's easy to use, IMO.

I just got a Kindle for Christmas the other day and I just finished reading my first book on it (the lost symbol by dan brown). The book was just OK but I really enjoyed reading it on the kindle! I wouldnt say its exactly the same as reading paper, but its darn close and I love the fact that its light and I can get any book at any time on it.

I cant wait for Kindle to implement the 'book lending' feature.

I have the 2nd gen. Kindle and I love it.

Although I got my son the lastest Kindle - which is much thinner and I like that it's black.

I need to get some stuff to read ...

Any suggestions?

My dad got me a Kindle for Christmas. I would probably not bought one for myself, so I was totally suprised. But... I love it already! Super lightweight & convenient.
Amazon has nice ( and pricy) covers online but I didn't wanna wait and wanted something not too expensive. I bought my cover from Best Buy. They have the Nook, Kindle & the Sony e-reader as well. Target has a few covers since they sell Kindle as well. If u wanna feel up the readers & compare before buying them.

I have not used the lending feature yet, but I think you just have to input the friend's email address on the lend me screen and the friend is sent notification that a book is availiable to "borrow". I think :-) LOL

I ordered a Kindle last week and can't wait to get it. I loooove reading, but my book collection is overflowing in my house and I have no more room to store them lol. Plus now it will be so much easier to take what I am reading along with me.

I have used the Kindle and Nook apps on my BlackBerry 9700, rather than shell out money for another device. I love the Kindle app! The Nook just isn't as intuitive and user-friendly to me.

Wow i didnt even know that there was an app. I love my nook. The DC/MD/VA area had a terrible snow storm traffic nightmare yesterday and if it were not for my Nook I dont know what i would have done.

I saw the traffic situation in the DMV on the news. You're right--not cool that you had to be stuck in that, but thank goodness for technology!
