    @farmgirl2106: yup – the Nook is Barnes and Noble’s Ereader that just came out with a color model to compete with the Ipad.  it’s great if you’re using it to read magazines and newspapers, but for actual books, I still prefer the Kindle and the e-ink, which doesn’t have a backlight and doesn’t hurt my eyes as much.

    I’m getting a Nook (not color) from DH for Christmas, I can’t wait! I’ve already downloaded a bunch of books onto our laptop so on Christmas morning I can load it up!

    I have the Nook app on my Droid Incredible and I’ve read one book and am on my second on it, but can’t wait to have the e-ink and larger screen… 🙂

    I have the sony ereader and love it, it has eink and I can read for hours without it hurting my eyes.  I would assume the color screen would be more like looking at a laptop screen which might make your eyes tired.

    I have the 2nd gen kindle and I’ve had it for over a  year and a half.

    I LOVE the e-ink non-back-lit screen.

     

    I haven’t seen a nook color and I’d worry about eye strain if it has any back-lighting at all.

    I just started a thread on this as well. FI is thinking of getting me one for Christmas. I went to look at one yesterday and it is awesome! It even has a web browser!

    i got one for my birthday and although i do think reading is easier to do on the readers with e-ink, the color nook is pretty awesome.  I love the web browsing and looking at pictures and magazines.  You can adjust the brightness and color of the page so it’s not as glaring – i usually use low brightness and a grey colored background page.
