Kindle vs. Nook

Since I began reading Joe Konrath's blog, my mind has been spinning with the idea of self-publishing via ebook.  According to the International Digital Publishing Forum, ebook sales have more than doubled in the past three quarters alone, so naturally, this option of publishing has been looking pretty interesting to a newbie like me.  Naturally, my research into e-publishing led me to info on e-readers.

Kindle, by Amazon, has long been the industry favorite, but the Nook, by Barnes and Noble was the #1 e-reader pick by Money Magazine.  I did a little research on both and ended up buying the Nook.  The Kindle was a great product, but I liked the touch screen offered by the Nook versus the keyboard on Kindle.  Also, the Nook allows me to upload anything in PDF format, which means I can have important documents handy, such as my daughter's school calendar (trust me as a mom, this was a HUGE consideration).

So, in the tradition of Edward vs. Jacob, I'd like to know what you think...  about the Kindle vs. the Nook (not Jacob and Edward).

Have a blessed day!
