So I've been doing my research, and (I'm sure you're not surprised) I'm down to the Kindle and the Nook Touch. The Kindle is thinner and a hair narrower, the Nook is shorter and lighter. The Kindle has more memory (4 GB vs 2 GB), but the Nook can take an SD card. The Kindle plays mp3 files, the Nook can support books from local libraries. Amazon claims 950,000 titles, B&N claims over 2 million. The Nook has a touch screen, Amazon has their wishlists. Both have the same e-ink pearl screen, but the Nook has a shorter flash when you turn a page.
I've played a little with both of them, and it's a tough call. I'm sort of leaning towards the Nook, but I can't decide.
I've talked to friends with Kindles. Anyone have a Nook? Anyone have any advice or suggestions, either way? What say you, wise ones of the interwebs?
